A lustrous Golden Ale to remind you of sunny days and summer suppin; welcome to the Carnival! Heady aromas of sweet Pine and Tangerine invite you in while a light caramel body gets things started. The revelry rises with earthy pine and sweet summer citrus flavours carousing the palate, and culminates in a laid-back bitterness and refreshingly dry finish. There’s a party in this glass and your taste buds are invited!

Beese (1463) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Draught at the Magic Rock 25 Tap Takeover at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 31 May. Poured a mid golden colour, with a thin white head and some lacing. Aroma of juicy tropical fruits, brown sugar and biscuity malt. Zesty flavours, some mango and chewy malt sweetness. Finish was quite light; some resin and dry grain in the mix, but it didn’t hang around too long.

Cask at old house sheffield. Light summer ale which will tempt you into buying another after another. Light, fruity, slightly bready with a hoppy nose but delivers on the palate. High standard of a session ale

Draught, Liverpool Psych Fest 2013. Clear gold looks with a small white head. Some citrus and piney hop present in the nose. Slightly thin flavour wise but the hop presence salvaged affairs. Dryish bitter finish. Balance a little off somehow. Ok but having set such a high standard this isn’t their greatest offering.
