COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A very clean flaxen-coloured beer with wonderful thirst-quenching properties. The subtle blend of aroma and bittering hops give a crispness on the tongue which is delicately fruity, giving way to some dryness. The inclusion of some flaked maize in the grist subtly hints at crisp corn flavours.
Ingredients: Optic malt, flaked maize, wheat malt. East Kent Goldings, Pioneer and Tettnang hops, coriander.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Cask @ Glue Pot, Swindon. Straw, almost transparent, with a thin white head. Light aroma of honey and malt with vinous overtones. Surprisingly sweet taste, like a gentler version of Summer Lightning without the astringency. Long sweet nectary finish. Weak mouthfeel. Good beer, but slight and unassertive.

DandyLion (513) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Cask @ The Clarendon Leicester. Pale golden colour. Aroma is cereal-like, almost straw. Very easy drinking with slight hop bitterness. Not loads of flavour, but I imagine it's quite the thing for a summers day. Unfortunately it's a sodden February day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, foamy white head that dissipates away and aroma of cereal grains, corn, hay. Sweetish biscuity cereal corn flavour with a grassy metallic bitterness. Light bodied, well carbonated, dry metallic bitter finish. OK.

Grzesiek79 (3112) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Dobre i zdrowe bezglutenowe piwo. Zaczne od wygladu, zwlaszcza piany. Obfita i niesamowita jest do tego trwala. Stoi caly czas w pintowej szklanicy, w zasadzie ona sama jest. Lekka metnosc i zamglona zlota barwa piwa ladnie wspolgra z ta piana. Smak zbozowy i jakby lekko orzechowy, delikatny i orzezwiajacy. Polecam szczegolnie bezglutenowca

On tap at Akkurat, April 2013. Clear golden with a small head. Aroma and taste of fruit, hay, some "swimming pool", malt and swedish cracker (knäckebröd). Soft and easy to drink.
