Our version of the classic English Pale Ale: Starting with a spicy marmalade and orange rind aroma, that’s sure to please real ale drinkers. A smooth and light body follows, transforming on the palate,into a refreshing blend of pleasant hoppyness. Inspired by a halo of light around the sun.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Cask at the Belle Vue, High Wycombe. Gold with a white head and a light sparkle. Pleasant sweet lemony hops, with a moderate dry bitterness and an easy going mouthfeel. Refreshing and goes down very easily. Nothing outstanding, but it’s a decent summer session ale, could drink a lot of this!

leaparsons (9954) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Served warm! Aromas are biscuit and grain with pepper. Lemon with strong off-homebrew notes. Flavours are sweet lemon with grain and bad off notes. Not served well and perhaps not a great brew, either.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
(Cask): Clear pale golden with a medium white head. Malty, biscuity and slight citrus notes in the aroma. Similar in taste with floral, grassy character to balance the sweet maltiness. Not bad.
