A quintessential golden ale brewed for refreshing easy drinking. Our soft Highland water allows the full floral flavour of the hops to come through the beer.

From cask at Bows Bar. Poursclear and golden orange with a small yet dense creamy white head. Aroma is mild hoppy fruity. Flavour starts sweet with a nice fruity hops note following. Shows a distinct bitterness into a dry finish. Light fruity hops note lasting along this giving the smooth impression of a fruity hoppy ale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Ale. Gold. Slightly nondescript fruit aroma. Taste has an unattractive cardboard overtone. Slight bitterness. Having written that I found the cardboard gradually transformed itself into a rather nice fresh apple peel aroma, and my rating climbed accordingly.

Cask at GBBF08. Hazy copper colour. Small stable creamy white head. The flavour starts with a distinct bitterness, slightly rough, then turns a little creamy. Uncomplicated, but nice enough.

Cask, Whey Pat Ale Festival, St Andrews. Golden blonde ale with a thin white head. Nose is hoppy, some malt and brown bread yeastiness. Mouth is slightly watery hops, some fresh fruit and a touch of citrus. Pleasant, all in all.

Svesse (7932) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2007
(Cask at GBBF, London, 9 Aug 2007) Golden yellow colour with foamy white head. Fruity nose with slightly earthy, citrussy hops, apricots and oranges. Fruity taste with notes of apricots, mandarin and earthy hops in a bitter-sweet finish. Light to medium body. Decent session ale, but not really exciting.
