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.

Oakes (11770) - 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.

Rook & Gaskill 26 Jan 13. Gyldengul. Lavt skum. Teppelacing. Sterk tung fruktaroma. Smaken litt tynn. Grapefrukt. Bra ut fra styrken.

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle - Xmas gift. Poured a really pale golden colour with a very thin white head and some lacing. Aroma of pear drops, straw and melon. Grassy hops in the initial flavour with some boiled sweets and light toasted malt. Finish was straw, peppery hop and grain.

Bottle courtesy of Baz (cheers Baz!) consumed at Eardisley, Herefordshire Friday 8th November 2013 Pours gold this one has a slight haze. Like the first one this is a little sweet initially. Comes across as a bit safe, but it is fine and certainly easy drinking. Despite the description this isn’t as crisp or hoppy as I would like. Its ok but the weakest of the three.

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.

DandyLion (465) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Gravity @ Galtres festival. Aroma is next to nothing. It is a crisp easily drinkable blonde beer with a not overpowering hoppy character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kwik-lime (1157) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Cask at Craft Beer Co in Brighton. Not much in the aroma. Pours with a thick head that it keeps nicely. Dry, herbacious hops dominate with a smooth palate. Nice.
