A bright golden ale, using Fuggles to create a soft rounded bitter with a hoppy taste & nose ideal for the summer.

Cask @ Great Expectations. Clear pale gold, slight citrussy aroma (little bit of orange), fresh light citrus taste. Nice beer, if a bit early in the year for something this summery!

Cask at the Victoria Station JDW - one of three Itchen Valley beers available!. Amber with a thin cream head; sweet and fruity aroma; the taste is an interesting combination of sweet and sour orchard fruits - with crab apple sourness and pear drop sweetness; and the finish has a prolonged but light bitterness. Different and enjoyable.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2005
Bottle. NOt bad, but a fairly standard bitter. Some grainy malt, and i would agree that it is a little biscuity, finishes with some earthy hops. Slightly citric, in the finish, pretty soft palate, and quite pleasant.
