An award winning beer for our brewery in Wakefield Beer Festival 2005. A robust, full flavoured, pale bitter beer, with grapefruit and varying citrus tones, and ’stay in the mouth’ after taste. Made with Halcyon malt and late hopped with three American hops.

Pale blond colour. Aroma is very fresh and citrusy. Very easy to drink, soft carbonation. Flavour is well balanced and refreshing with a delicate hop finish. Good session beer for a warm day.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2008
Cask in Blackfriars. One of the clearest beers iv ver seen, like the glass was distorting its clarity. Aroma is unusual, grassy citrus, slightly dusty, pale malts an small honey note. Taste is similar, on the bitter side of balance, very drinkable stuff indeed.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005. More amber r=than gold in colour. Although only 3.8%, this beer has bags of hops and, consequently, seemed to have held on better into the last day of the festival than some of the other. Grassy aroma with considerable bitterness on the palate. Still tasted a touch tired to me.
