From the very first draught, this pale hoppy ale will slake your thirst. A fusion of Maris Otter malts and Pilot and Fuggles hops explode on the palate as biscuit and juicy fruit flavours give way to citrus and berry hops, good hop aroma and hoppy after taste. A superb summer beer.

Cask@lychgatetavern, wolverhampton. Golden beer with thin head. Small amount of citrus aroma. Taste is dry crisp hops and a citrus fuzz. Quite a nice beer.

Towey1989 (1666) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear pale golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, some grain, subtle diacetyl and slight grassy hops. Taste of soapy lemon, a little orange, some grain, slight biscuit and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, slightly biscuity, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Some hoppiness but quite grainy and watery. Unappealing finish too.

Cask, shared with Finn at Standing Order (JDW) in Derby. Low white head blanketing the glass. Clear golden. Distant smell of oily hops and bread. Dough and juicy malts to the taste buds. Mid-dry bitter ending. Slightly beyond par, I would say (18.02.2016).

Fra kran på Standing Order i Derby 18 Feb 16. Lys gylden. Beskjeden fruktaroma. Tynn lacing. Smaken veldig tynn. Sitrus. Kjedelig.

teorn88 (6048) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Backlog rating. Cask at JDW CW, London. It pours a clear rich golden color with a small white head. Aroma is bitter and crisp, with grains, starch, dried leaves. Taste is quite muted and lightly earthy sweet, with caramel and dried leaves. Light bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, unexciting

Gary (1832) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Cask @ the Greyhound JDW ,Bridport : Gold ass gold. Citrus zest nose with gooseberry , orange , sugary lemon . Flavours are pretty bitter and forward , i like the zesty bitterness , nice orange and lemon zest covered in sugar . What could be better about this beer is a more full bodied backdrop ..the hop bitterness is nice and vibrant . Just a tad thin!

Very mild. Aroma hard to find. Appearance pale. Slightly more bitter on palate than you might expect. Overall nothing wrong with it but bit like watered down beer.

Pours a light clear yellow with a creamy white head. Smells of egg... Taste is not much better.
