chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2011
On cask (gravity dispense) at Chelmsford Beer Festival on 15 July 2011. Very surprised to find I hadn’t reviewed this before. Extremely pale straw colour. Loose white head. Excellent condition. Clean and citric. Lots of bitterness. Light bodied and very drinkable. Despite the colour this is much more of a bitter than a golden ale. Straightforward but does the job admirably.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2010
Caask. Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head. Sweet citrusy hoppy nose - delicious. Light body, almost flat with a sweet fruitiness. Lightly hoppy finish with loads of fresh citrus. Damm, this would be a killer quencher if only served cold! 180110
