330ml bottle from M&S Birmingham New Street I think. Left for a while, only just got round to cracking open. Gusher. Solid, creamy blond with a good yeasty character.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle on the train home from Twickers, from M&S in said place, 29/03/14. Golden with a big old off white covering. Nose is light yeast esters, vanilla essence, floral tones, orange peel, lemon rind. Taste comprises candyfloss, caramel, soft bread dough, light spice, candied fruits, light metallic notes. Medium bodied with a little punch, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough Belgo affair.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Pours golden, very nice on the nose with a slight citrus kick. A touch of orange/general citrus on the palate, in general a very pleasant drinkable beer

mR_fr0g (1974) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle from m&s. Nice floral eatery nose. Esters are a little volatile and later the pilsner malt is more present. Golden colour, slight haze. Fine bubble white foam. Semi dry finish. More esters in the flavour. Some orange. Fine prickly carbonation. Good palate. All round a very well put together beer.

Bottle. Golden with a bubbly white foam. Aromas are caramel and candy sugar with bready yeast and banana. Mellow lemon with minerals and floral aspects. Mixed spices with grain and traces of honey. Flavours are sweet caramel and grain with coriander spiciness and bittersweet lemon. Bready yeast with a herbal, dry, leafy finish. Not bad at all.
