Bottle from the Oddbins Beer Shop, Blackheath. Gold pour with a white head. Honey and citrus aroma and flavour, some light sweet spice and caramel notes too. Bitter-sweet linger. Not too bad.

swampwater (22) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle from Beer 52.

Aroma: Apple, hops, and a light floral aroma.
Appearance: Golden brown. Light head.
Taste: An almost cider-like apple bite upfront. Slight hop and lemon flavours.
Palate: Sweet, and sour upfront. Mellows quickly. Oily mouthfeel. Light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Quite a weird one... it kind of tastes like a snake bite (half beer / half cider). Itís quite refreshing at first, but when the beer gets warmer - it gets a bit funky.

Keg at Waiting Room. Rich toffee and caramel flavour with some grassy lagery hops. This tasted better on keg than it does from the bottle.

worldbeertaste (1709) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Never been much of a fan of this style. Sweet and nice fruity taste with a bit of citrus and veg on the finish. Nothing really special but not unenjoyable. Would be great with some Vietnamese food with chicken and nuts.

edsspoon (679) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle - amber with a fizzy light beige head which quickly fades to a thin ring. Aroma of lager malts, faint caramel. Taste of caramel, a little chocolate and toffee with some notes of lager malt and a faint bitterness.

sigenner (4) - Brierley Hill, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2015 does not count
A very refreshing beer, light bitterness on the palate, hints of banana on the nose, because itís bitterness comes through, it makes you want to sup again & again, very nice quaffer.

Very nostalgic, and very tasty. Iím a bit biased by the malt, but this is genuinely good.
