Bottle from Tuckers Maltings or Darts Farm. Hazy golden, quite big white head. Hoppy nose with a touch of lime. Malty with lemony hops, and hoppy flavours that remind me of good aromatic hops in a (south) German Pilsener.

Slightly dishwashing-liquidy nose with some cereal and a bit of malt. Pours a gentle gold with a fluffy head. Flavour is more cereal notes with some biscuity malt coming through. Little to no hops. Finish is slightly sour. Average.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival on 28 April 2011. Another clean gold beer. This one did have quite a pronounced zesty citrus tang to it so did stand out from the crowd more than most I tried on the day.
