Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with a huge white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and hops. Flavour has lime and hops, a little caramel in the finish. Very nice and drinkable but over carbonated.

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).

BlackHaddock (4379) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, no artificial or genetically modified ingredients. Poured into a Veltins Pilsner glass. Clear and bright, golden and lager looking (the glass helped to give the illusion), withits white head. The aroma however told you this wasn’t a lager/pilsner, the hops and yeast coming up from the glass instantly said, The UK. Very English in the taste, clean and bitter-sweet feel to it. Dry with an even more dryness in the aftertaste. A lot more body to it than the colour indicates. All in all, not bad.

olio (6799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Cask @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pale clear golden colour with minimal head on the sides. Aroma of hay, mild malts, some toffee and mild hoppy fruits. Some resin can be found also. Flavour of grass, mild fruits, herbal notes and light malts. Smooth fruity palate with a fruity aftertaste.

Half, hand pulled cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico. Clear, copper-gold body colour. Bubbles on the surface, fragile lacing. Mild aroma of floral hops and hay. Leafy hops to the taste buds added by a spicy touch. Dry bittersweet ending. Refreshing and drinkable (London, 30.07.2011).
