Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Cask at Dukes B&Q, 05/07/14. Clear light golden with a decent off white covering that retains. Nose is pale malts, citric peel, lemon rind, grassy, faint apricot. Taste comprises pale malts, bread dough, tangerine, orange pith. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close with a citric wash. Ok golden blonde - not a bitter for me!

Pours hazy straw colour with a small white head. Aroma is Light and zesty. Flavour is a huge hit of hops and grapefruit, which kind of overpowers anything else not leaving room for much complexity. Just as well I love the flavours that do come through. Really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are grain with lightly nutty lager like malts. Lemon with peppery, leafy, grassy notes. Flavours are crisp lemon and dry biscuit and grain with quite bitter lemon. Grassy with a spicy finish. Yeasty with hints of apple and background honey sweetness. Very nice.

Hazy gold - amber beer, good white head. Light palate, airy with mild prickly carbonation. Creamy malt, very slight soap. Nice orange - lemon hops with a touch of peach and a trace of apple. Finishes soft with a bright note of lemon -orange zing. Decent beer!

500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with huge, lasting, macropore to frothy, white head; lots of bubbles adhering to the bezel. Hoppy aroma on a decent grainy basis, a citrus touch. Taste is initially mild caramel malty, slightly grainy with a citrus touch, later dry grainy, really bitter hoppy in the finish.
