An extremely clean-drinking pale golden ale with a strong floral aroma and elderflower notes from the Cascade hops. This beer is full-bodied and full-flavoured yet gentle enough to make it a favourite session beer.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Hoppy citrus beer. Fresh and fruity and comparable to Oakham JHB. Easy drinking and not too bitter.
