imdownthepub (12688) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2015
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).
