COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Originally a Summer seasonal.

Sunchaser blonde is a thirst-quenching beer made in the style of a continental lager. Hence you will find subtle fruit flavours and a little sweetness within.
Developed as a thirst quenching beer, perfect for those warm summer evenings. Overtones of a delicate spice and peppery nature, complementing the main palate features of rounded sweetness, with hints of peach and lychees.

Ingredients: Lager malt; Hallertau hops - dry hopped with Saaz hops.

Towey1989 (1572) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grain, cereal, slight lemon, a hint of bready malt and subtle grassy hops. Taste is similar of grain, cereal, slight lemon and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A soft, malty and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. It’s a boring, bland golden ale. Drinkable though.

jmgreenuk (7076) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 30, 2015
Gravity cask at the Birmingham CAMRA Beer Festival 2015. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light skunky malt. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light watery malt light citrus hop palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

FatPhil (13032) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 7, 2015
Cask (Tram Depot, Cambridge) as "Tram Light" at 4.0%
Tons of honey in aroma. However, quite weak and watery. Very pale, almost no head. Soft palate, but watery. Pear drops in the retronasals too, according to Anna, it’s closer to apple for me. 3.0 seems like an under-rate, as it’s a perfectly drinkable bitter.
Earlier Rating: 8/20/2007 Total Score: 3.2
Draught (Tram Depot, Cambridge) Very light. Thin head. Sweet malt, then black tea, them more malt aroma. Maybe some liver stuffing and gravy. Very sweet malty taste, but just a little watery. Caramel malt finish - tasty session, I guess.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
Cask from The Duke of Wellington, Neville’s Cross. £2.85/pint Very weak, neutral aroma, hints of grass. Pleasing yellow-gold appearance with good white head after taking a long time to settle. Taste is okay, malt, bread, raw dough. Palate is very light with a disappointing lack of bitterness to the finish. As a thirst-quenching summer beer it does the job but struggles to announce itself with anything more than mediocrity. Not one to actively seek out.

Mr_Pink_152 (3354) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
On tap at the three stags, bebbington. Pale straw colour with almost no head. Very faint lemon aroma, slight bitter finish, but on the whole a bit watery.

The_Osprey (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Mar 2015 - Cask at the Railway Tavern, Richmond. Yellow, hazy, still, small scummy white head, pretty full lacing. Aroma is gluey, musty. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is light sponge cake malt, soft lemon, watery, a bit thin and watery, reminds me of ’Vitamin Water’. Quite pleasant overall, but the flavour is never going to blow anyone’s mind.

allmyvinyl (9018) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 2 May 2012. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma was really light, but what there was wasn’t good; farts, sulphur and flat malt. Boiled sweets in the flavour, with bread and skunked hops. Finish was wet grass, copper and apples. One bad pint.

Cask 1 pint, The Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth, England, UK. Jasnozłote piwo o cienkiej pianie i świeżym, cytrusowym aromacie. W smaku orzeźwiające, świeże, cytrusowe z przyjemną chmielową goryczką.

Rune (10833) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2014
Pint on cask at King William IV (the Brodies pub, where all their own beers were gone this Saturday evening). Slightly hazy, pale golden body. Diminishing white head. Smell of dried fruits and pale malts. Taste of lemon and sweet apples promoting a cider-like impression. Mid-sweet ending. Ok, far from great (Leyton, London 27.09.2014).
