COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A beer derived from years of practice searching for the perfect pint, of course hoping secretly that you never actually find it! In other words, a pint suited to the taste- buds of our head brewer that can be savoured several times in one session without feeling like the bottom has fallen out of your world (or vice-versa!). Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more.

joe19612 (1820) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2008. Good golden colour with a thin white head. The aroma is all hops and grass, the flavour is all citrus, with a nice dry finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
Cask, gravity dispense, at 5th Globe Beer Festival, Dunstable, Bedfordshire. Dark gold with a small white head. Malt and some hops in the aroma. Sweet quite gentle malt taste. The (rather silly) name suggests a hoppy finish, but I detected little bitterness.

doubelknv3 (971) - Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tasting notes from 2003 Harbury Beer Festival. Dark golden with frothy head. Citrus and sweet fruit aroma. Sweeter than I expected with hop citrus notes. Lasting bitter finish.

motelpogo (6309) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 4, 2007
cask at bon accord, glasgow. rich golden colour, faint head, dusty aroma with some tinned tropical fruit, soft texture, hints of menthol, reasonable bitterness, not too bad

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Clear straight golden. Gentle lacy sticky off-white head. Slightly peppery, orangey mellow hops. Gentle melony malts play a supporting role and leave the sandy bitterness grow by the sip. Slight saltiness also makes an appearance. More than fair,

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2007
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. Amber colour. Citric hops behind a blanket of tea-ish hops. Fruity, citric hoppy flavour profile with a thorough bitterness, that is all pleasant. Light-medium body.

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. Deep golden. Citrusy and fruity. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Some light grain and rubber. Flowery bitter finish. Quite likable, if a bit sweet.
