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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
