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.

Cask at Bon Accord. Good golden ale, more body than their Carte Blanche, despite lower abv. Aroma of fruit and hop. Good finish.

Cask Conditioned, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Golden beer with a nice fluffy white head from the pump. The beer was in wonderful condition. Hoppy and delicious, with light and delicate pineapple notes. The beer finish with a good bitter bite and was outstanding.

Very suprising, best iv had from kelburn. Aroma is grapefruit and slightly floral hops. Taste is similar, with a fuller than expected flavour for something of this strength. Very refreshing and i hope we’ll be getting this back in soon - wetherspoon (kirky puffer).

Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam tops the clear peachy golden.
-Honeyed maltiness seductively interacts with the citrusy, floral, wooden hop perfume.
-Cereal and citrusy hops have a firm grip on the tastebuds, and no one’s complaining, quite the contrary.
-The mouthfeel is clean, lean, and mean, always drinkable and amorously fed.

What if you dig deeper?
-The flavor profile is very well balanced.
-Apricot add to the already fruity finish.
-Lots of flavor for such a light brew, which makes this all the more commendable. A great session blond ale, no doubt. Thanks Gareth!

rickgordon (3853) - 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.
