jd543 (387) - SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2013
Clear, golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma is lemony-citrus hops, grapefruit, and a faint bready malt character. Taste is sweet, a little salty with a light bitterness to it. Texture is creamy with a fair bit of carbonation to it. A tad ordinary, but a good refreshing beer.
