The beer has a prominent hop character; a blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade has been used in the recipe to bring the delicate hop flavours & aroma to the fore. The use of Cascade gives a pleasing citrus aroma. Finest pale Maris Otter malt has been blended with Wheat malt and Rye Crystal to provide a full flavoured beer. The lavish use of late hop dominates the malt flavour and results in a satisfying pint.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Bottled. A golden beer with a whitish head. A tale of two halves. At first this has barely any aroma followed by bitterness in the mouth and fruitiness intermingled with cardboard and a strange fizzy feel. There’s a bit of shampoo too. But then whaoah! Where did that come from? As good orangey citrus notes shine through. These must be the cascades. Becomes really juicy and good. Where were the good bits at the start though? Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 3.4. Average becomes 3.3

pivnizub (9729) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle: deep golden, a bit unclear, medium-sized and stable lacy, fluffy off-white head; distinctive floral hops and a tinge of sulphur in the nose; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and soft; shorter hoppy, juicy and fruity finish. Just a fine english brew.......

rauchbier (3709) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle, from Tesco Scunthorpe. Faintly hazy gold, good lasting fluffy white head and pleasant condition. Gentle fruity grain notes and solid citrus hops in the nose, quite fruity in the mouth initially, with a full bodied chalky graininess and a developing citrus hoppiness that becomes predominantly bitter with time. Bitter hoppiness lingers into the finish with even a suggestion of low levels of bretty Orval-like hop sack lurking.

Ungstrup (32202) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has strong notes of lemon - is it from lemongrass? but also with notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and lemon - I would never have guessed it came from Cascade hops - my guess was lemongrass, leading to a slightly acidic finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

MoritzF (9036) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, golden colur with a medium-sized, minimal off-white foamy head. Flowery and lemon-fruity, slightly zesty hops aroma with a moderate malty sweetness. Bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a calm carbonation. Pale malty taste with traces of biscuits and a blend of fruity, bitter and woody hops; initially dry character that sweetens towards the rather short finish. Aromatic and uncomplicated Ale (11.VIII.09).

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2009
There’s nothing wrong with this beer, pale, bit of malt & slight citrus, fairly refreshing, but at the end of the day why bother. I know it’s nice & cheap but there’s so many better beers out there for a few pence more. Don’t get me wrong though drink this before any of the chemically mass produce rubbish available, but your report card would read ’could do better’.

bobinlondon (1276) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle from Morrisons. Gold with a good lacey white head. Chrisp and refreshing with a noticable tangy wheat edge. Plenty of hop characture too. A very enjoyable beer from the fridge.
