COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned in 500ml bottles.
A golden beer to rival any other on the bar. Light and refreshing with a citrus (some say grapefruit!) note. We use a true English hop, the East Kent Golding, and in great abundance too. This is our best selling beer.

Cask at The Ale House, Colchester. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop varnish bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. I’m not sure what hops were used but they took some getting used to!

Bottle at home, thanks to Jim Ezzex IP, 26/02/13. Bottle conditioned - just under a month after BBD for future re-rate reference. Hazed golden amber with a smallish frothy white head that clears to a film, looks a little over carbonated wirh small bubbles clinging to the glass. Nose is pale malt, lemon peel, orange, yeasty notes, light spice, cooking apples. Taste comprises grass, citrus, yeast, pale malt, stewed apples, wheat, grain. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some citric bitterness in the finish. Not good, not bad ... file under ’W’ !

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear yellow pour with almost no head. Faint aroma, bits of straw. Decent flavor, reasonably sweet, plenty of straw and cereal, some lagerishness in there, mildy bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty well balanced by the time the finish comes around. Some nice crackery malts and straw hops. Some faint soap, but no biggie. Decent.
