Bottle on holiday in Lyme Regis. Hazy gold beer, no head. Palate is light and almost carbonation free! Moderately sweet malts. Ripe orange with orange peel and orange squash. Light semi dry finish. Okay flavour - flat palate!

Bottled, 500ml from Truckles Farm Shop, Burnham on Sea, Somerset. Hazed gold with slight head. There is a slightly tart fruity character to this right from the start, a touch of peachy sourness. Perfumed, floral notes later on. Not really for me.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle; amber-gold, hazy; thin intermittent wisps instead of a head; pleasant citrus nose; flavour is tasty malts (some sweetness, some toast, some bread, some toffee) backed by some earthy citrus hops; well-balanced; buttery, without being cloying; moderate bitterness; dry finish; this was unexpectedly good (I’d swiped a bottle from Tesco during a brief gap in my internet-ordered stash).
