Golden ale with dull after taste. Not great on the palette. If anything a summer drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad, not good though. On the fizzy side and doesn’t look or smell extraordinary. Tastes OK though, quite drinkable.

StueyD (1065) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
A bright golden orange coloured beer with a frothy, lasting white head. A light biscuity malt aroma is matched by a orangey citrus hop smell. Dry mouthfeel. A dry, cracker biscuit malt taste to start, then comes the hops! A bitter, pithy orange, lemon and possibly even a touch of grapefruit taste, with a hint of bready spice towards the end. The finish is bitter and citrusy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2013
Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is malty and not much else. The flavour is medium bitter with a malty liqourice hoppy palate. Refreshing and fine for a session, but nothing special. I’d love to try the cask version.
