Poured a nice golden color. It had a fresh and fruity and citrusy flavor and aroma with a nice malty character in the flavor as well. Pretty nice and very drinkable, but why P-A-I-L?

On cask at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. Very cloudy. Yellow / amber colour. Some orange peel on the aroma. Something rather odd in the flavour that I canít quite put my finger on. A bit sweet and fruity. The mouthfeel is soft and rather dull. Clearly not in peak condition. Flagged for re-rate.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2010
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest í10. Pale gold with white head. This was a light, fruity, tangy beer, very tasty and crisp, well brewed and very drinkable. The Brewers were rightly proud of this producing consistently good beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at GBBF.
Semi hazy light amber colour with a decent off white head. Good hoppy snout but from there on it is struggling badly. Pretty rank chlorine and plastic notes spoil what is clearly pretty good underneath.
