A refreshing lager coloured ale, with a crisp citrus bite and aromas of fruit, has a dry, fresh hoppy finish. The perfect accompaniment for a summer’s day.

Cask at GBBF 2010. A hazy yellow beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with odd notes of spices, that I don’t fancy, leading to a dry and spicy finish.

Dear Hartland Blonde, you are much more delicate of a lady than your crudely drawn pump handle would have us believe. You are clear, golden yellow, with a sweet aroma, and a slightly doughy, lemony flavor. Well, with that in mind, maybe you might be a bit of a tart, but so are some of the most refreshing ladies I know.
