imdownthepub (9992) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Rose & Crown, Charlbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a delicate little beer, there was a light, malty, slightly biscuity body carrying an easy, light lemony hop flavour. Well balanced, easy drinking. I quite liked it.

Palate - thin to medium body, light bitter palate. Finish as main flavour, touch of sharp lemon zest in the linger
Overall - Itís a lowish abv above average golden ale, not bad at all, quite refreshing

Golden colour, minimal white head and with moderate to low carbonation. The aroma is slightly sweet but with a crisp, bitter flavour. There is some underlying sweetness on the palate. This is quite refreshing.
