Aroma of malts, fruits, grass and some floral notes. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall i find this a pleasant drink, not very interesting in any way, just a pleasantly refreshing and easy drinkable brew.

Almost bright, golden. Aroma is sweetish malts, Taste is sweet malts again with some dusty hops. Slightly too malty for me, also the mouth feel a bit watery ot thinnish. Needs more crispness and body. Bought from Hogs Back stall at Guildford Farmer’s Market on 1st Sep 2015.

Copper colour. It’s a fairly unoffensive but plain bitter. Nice balance of malt and hops but a bit lacking in flavour and rather thin and watery.

500ml bottle. Purchased from Whistle stop at London Waterloo. Fantastic compared to the Russian crap i was drinking yesterday. Anyway, colour is very slightly clouded orange. Aroma is strongly hoppy and just like a good english ale. Taste is extremely hoppy and a nice strong after taste.
