Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
Colour: Dark gold. Summertime blonde beer which uses lager, malt and organic Perle Hallertau hops. On the nose there's an emphatic citrussy and lemon character with grainy malt lingering in the background. On the palette there's a whisper of grainy malt followed by more citrus (lemon and lime) before the dry finish with developing bitterness and an undertone of citrus fruit. An exceedingly well-balanced blend of malty and hoppy flavours to which you will want to keep returning.

Very bland aroam, sweet malts. Sweet bland malt taste. Some dry twiggy bitterness. Why was this beer made? Macros can do this on their own - was fresh, not spooned.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Cask from The Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours mid-amber with slight orangey haze, a thin but frothy white head and a touch of carbonation. Aroma is mango, grapefruit and significantly alcoholic. Tropical fruit flavours open on a smooth palate and an earth, citra-esque skunkiness to the hops (should call it Skunky Monkey), as well as, fittingly for the brewery but not too pleasantly a certain dairy, milky flavour that comes through early before a mid-length, dry finish. Quite enjoyed it and it stood out in a market of numerous identikit citrusy golden beers.

Parmenion777 (35) - - SEP 1, 2015
Clear amber gold, small off-white head. Pleasantly hoppy but not overpowering, fruity (tropical). Mellow in the mouth, bready malts, some lacing and a mild bitter finish.

theprof (192) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Hint of citrus but bo great scent. Pours amber with lace top. Taste has some light lemon notes but also sweet malt. Palate carries the lingering bitter finish. So a session bitter for the end of summer.
