Cask; Seasonal - May to August.
Light, smooth, and refreshing, Summer Ale is pale gold in colour, and at 3.9% alcohol by volume, an excellent quaffing ale. It delivers a flavour most lagers can only dream of, thanks to its all-malt brew (containing malted wheat), and 100% Saaz hops, a Czech variety found in the best pilseners. Like Organic Honey Dew, it should always be served chilled.

Sampled Cask condtioned. Tried this after some draught ESB, so this tasted weak. However, itís light & refreshing - perfect for a hot summerís day. I might try this again, but with Chiswick Bitter, London Pride & ESB avaliable in Fullerís pubs, why would I?

Cask conditioned handpump Sir Charles Napier Brighton A golden coloured beer with a little off-white head and lacing. A sweetish yet hoppy aroma and a sweetish taste with biscuit notes. A bit of butter and a bit of lemon. Nice enough but would easily become cloying

Cask @ The Bon Accord. Resin aroma. Rich golden colour with a good head. Biscuit, cereal & biscuit flavour. Smooth but a bit watery. Better than other reviewers suggest. Perhaps that is just because I am a golden ale man.
