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 conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Pale gold with white head. Light, sharp, hoppy and fruity beer, fresh as morning, nicely crisp, bright and bitter. There is a slight pineapple note, biting with a lemon background, a hint of cereal in the malt. A nicely done beer.

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.

Cask@GBBF2010. Golden colour, small head. Aroma is vegetables, some nuts, mild floral and fruity notes along with bready malts as well as some slight honey. Flavour is very much the same. Rather balanced and pleasant.

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.
