Bottle. Pours cloudy golden, visible sediment in the bottle. Refreshing orange zest aroma, unusual for an English pale ale. Yeasty, orange zest flavours, some spices, but kept in check. Very Belgian and quite accomplished in that regard.

Bottle, Dram Shop, Sheffield. This is a little gem of a brew, a really pleasant surprise. Pallid gold with a bit of haze and a white head. Fragrant and fruity aroma. Flavour was bright clean and very refreshing with citrus hop, lemon and banana notes. Would gladly drink a lot of this.
