Hazed golden ale with a thick creamy lacing white head. Light malts and sweet aroma. In mouth, very light in body, short malt and very short British hops. Dissapears quickly with just residual bitterness. A watered down version of a good beer which i tasted a few years back, before RB.

On cask at BarVolo. Clear yellow with a small frothy white head. Body is flat but it’s to be expected as it’s on cask. Sweet aroma of light hops is nice but barely present hence the low score. Nicely balanced flavour of sweet malts and light hops is very smooth and delicious. A great summer beer.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Draught (cask) at Volo. Slightly cloudy deep gold, average creamy white head, average lacing. Lots going on to my nose - oak, soap, dry malt, weak hops, dry straw. Surprise is in the flavour - incredibly smooth, complex and venerable - various wood/forest notes, musty/mushroomy, and an overall balance between medium bitterness and malt. Light to medium bodied, soft on the mouth, oaky and slightly bitter to finish.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 A really nice surpirse.
Dark/golden ale with a sweet, floral and malt aroma. Really mouthwatering. The taste doesn’t disappoint. A few citrus notes mixed in with a nice dose of hops. Great aftertaste - some bitterness and very refreshing. Already stocked up - that’s how much I ike this ale.
This ale is going to be a standard choice of mine.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 Good example of the style!
Dark amber dody with a beige head that is about one inch thick. Aromas are heavy malts, nuts, and brown sugar. Also some hops present.
Taste is sweet maltiness, mild roasted notes, candy, and hops bitterness. Nice! Bittersweet finish, nice bite in the mouth all the way down. A decent brew!
