A delicious ruby light bitter at 3.6% with a memorable fruity aroma nicely combined with a subtle malty sweetness and a longer medium bitter aftertaste

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. A malty aroma of caramel, barley and light grassy hops. Similar flavours and just a little sweet. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Not bad but odd name given not so much hop aroma. Surprisingly bitter.

Cask conditioned at The Kings Arms, Oxford. Old gold with no head. Overwhelming sweet toffee with caramel flavour, nothing else came through, where were the dry hops we all wondered? Not a great effort.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Gold, no head. Smells occasionally pleasant. Taste - some hops, but quite a bit of mineral water. Easy to drink, quite dry, not too exciting.

I am starting to become a fan of the Whites/Franklins range. This ale is an easy drinking session beer. With a slight fruit taste. A thoroughly enjoyable ale. The head does dissapear slightly which I have spoken to Paul at the brewery about. I am looking forward to the new editions to the Franklins range.

Cask handpull at White Hart Newenden. Chestnut colour disappearing head. Bit of rubber in the flavour. Some bitterness on finish. Touch of fruit.
