Bottled, thanks Boudicca! Hazy golden, rich head. Citric nose with white grapes and gooseberry. Dry and very light with crisp, firm mouthfeel. Plenty of salty, citric hops, slight buttery malt, long salty bitterness. Truly refreshing, yet flavourful.

Bright clear pale gold beer with a small white head. Light crisp palate. Light pale malt, touch of grain. Whisper of apple. Minerals. Hops are grassy and have noble hop like bitterness. Crisp finish. Seems a bit grainy and green, not sure this is quite right.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Light hazy tan. More of a musty, appley aroma than I was expecting. Fairly bland with light bitterness and vague fruits. Disappointing.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Hazy gold with white head. Remarkably light is quite a correct description, they could have added thin. This proved to be a particularly bland beer, vaguely malty, hints of caramel, where the hops had disappeared to I’m not sure. No off flavours, just dull.

Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 20/11/12. Clear pale golden with a thin white head that retains well. Good lacing follows. Big hoppy nose, orchard fruit, light vanilla tones, pale malts. Taste follows, sharp hop flavour, butter, fruits. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter hoppy finish. Good stuff!

Cask conditioned handpump Mr Foleys Leeds 23/09/12. A blonde beer with a white head and lacing. Hoppy as promised. grapefruit is the dominant citrussy hoppy note. Good bitterness in the mouth. A nice pale malt balancing act. A well brewed quaffable and sessionable hoppy beer.
