Much lighter than I would have thought. Would not pick as a bitter. Very drinkable, but call it pale ale and drink it in the sun.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 I’m surprised by the colour of this beer. It seemed lighter than I was expecting. Golden yellow with evident carbonation and a film of head. Star and golden malts seem to be the contributing aromas along with borage honey and perfumy grass. This manifests in the flavour along with sweets, Werther’s caramel and honeycomb. A tasty little sod, I’m shortlisting this as my next pint. Enduring flavours of honey and wax. (3.3/5)
This re-rate is because I have just enjoyed this off handpull. It accentuates the gorgeous waxy body of the beer and the slightly warmer serving temperature does the flavour no end of favours.
