Clear golden, white head. Fruity, pale malts, bitter ending. Too thin, but very good otherwise.

Superb session beer. Nicely hopped, fragrant and pale colour make this ideal for a few beers on a summers day in the lakes

Cask at the brewery. Pale yellow clear pour with a steadfast pure white head head. Aroma is fresh cereal grains, light hedgerow berries, faint citrus. Flavour is tangy grains, faint lemon, cereal, light cut grass. Palate is light and refreshing, grainy, good cask condition. Lingering grassy hop. Nice light pale ale.

Towey1989 (1665) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, pale malts, honey and grassy hops. Taste of lemon, some grapefruit, honey, subtle biscuit and grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Exceptionally good for its strength. Light but hoppy, bitter and citrusy, citra is slowly becoming my favourite hop.

Alengrin (4344) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Summer beer with some wheat malts. Snow white, thinnish but stable head, colour clear golden blonde. Grassy hops in the nose as well as hints of yeast, banana and grapefruit. Light caramelly malt sweetness in the mouth, grainy, vague wheat sourishness, yeasty and dry with spicy citrus touch and hop bitter finish. Less creamy than usual in this style - unfortunately, I’d add - but still very enjoyable.
