COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
This light and refreshing ale, available throughout the summer months, is a real thirst-quencher. Plenty of fruit and hops lead to a lingering light hoppy aftertaste.

mr_h (2799) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask by hand-pump at Callum’s Bar, Johnstone (4% abv on the pump-clip) - clear golden, thin creamy off-white head, weak malty aroma, excellent film of fine lacing, malty, grain, a bit lacking in hops

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in 9th January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick creamy white head. Malt in the short aroma with buttery shortbread noted. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a sweet fruity base of honeydew melon with none of the expected tart citrus fruit detected. Dilute hop resins impart a light floral bitter note to the short aftertaste. Finish is sweet and malty with hints of heather honey and apple crumble flavours. A decent session Golden Ale and worth seeking out.

GBBF Cask. Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Nice light fruity beer. Generic fruits. Finishes dry, fruity and light. Light and refreshing.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Slightly hazy bronze. The aroma has slight biscuity nuttiness. Toasty, with lightly fruity (apple) notes. Ok beer, but seems to lack focus.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Cask @ Halfway House. Not too sparkled. Clear gold with stable head. Aroma is fresh pale malts plus husks. Clean juicy palate. Nicely husky with juicy sweetness in the middle, and some acidity in the finish as well. Good.

Rune (7956) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2009
Bubbly, tiny white head on top of a nice golden-amber body. Malt-fruity smell. Notes of grassy hops can be detected in the malty-fruity taste profile. Mild bitter ending. More than an average expression of the style. Gravicask at GBBF, 06.08.2009.
