500ml bottle. Clear straw colour with a thin head. Plenty if grapefruit, a little grass, some honey and a long, very dry, bitter finish. An excellent session ale.

On tap at Churchkey. Nice golden body with medium head. Nose is citrus, oaky, hoppy. Taste is citrus, hops but also quite grainy and malty. Nice hoppy finish.

mansquito (4196) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: pours golden with a white head. Aroma is light citrus, sugar, it has a pretty powerful aroma for a blonde ale. Taste is nice and bitter. Body is light but not watery. Excellent.

JohnnyGr8days (10) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Draught pint at the Free Trade Inn in Newcastle. This had flavour then some. I drank the lot and tapped the bottom to get the drops. They need to clean the toilets in that place, the line between authentic dive bar and very real health risk was probably crossed back in the 80s. Still would recommend the beer.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ @Churchkey][ $3][ Snifter ][ 06.03.15 ]
translucent gold, large bubbled white ring. Lightly buttery nose, light citrus and wood. Grainy bitterness up front, citrus and more grain mid very balanced, effervescence helping maintain session nature, more dryness trough doughy end, light but inoffensive butter through biting, sticky end, hops lingering long for contrasting and nuanced bitterness.

Cask at Siren, 10th July 15. Really nice session beer, light loads of hops, big flavour for the ABV, could drink a lot of this.

Blonde claire et limpide, très mousseuse, mousse laissant un dentelle en disparaissant très vite. Nez fruité de fraises, fruits rouges et citron. Bouche amère, corps aqueux, saveurs légères de fraises, framboises et citrons.

teddybeer (2804) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 26, 2015
Golden color with a frothy white head with good lacing and lasting. Aroma has notes of camomile, floral hops, tea and slightly citrus. Flavor with a light bitterness with floral hints. Light bitterness in the final.

RichardW (1761) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Cask, Moo Bar Carlisle. Grassy aroma, sweet malt is a little dominant surprisingly. Very easy drinking with a full fruity finish that rounds it off very nicely. Still think it’s a little too highly rated, but good nonetheless.
