Cask; Regular.
Moorhouse’s first ever ‘Blond’ ale, this beer is as light as you can get with a lager colour (minus the bubbles). Drinks to the strength of any good White Witch.

The_Osprey (5952) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Cask at Hamilton Hall Liverpool St as Moorhouses Blonde Witch. Amber orange, clear, still, small off white foam atop. Aroma is squeezy honey, white bread. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is sweet, biscuity, light musty hops, cardboard, soft citrus. Pleasant golden ale with good balance. Definitely a quaffer.

Don2711 (382) - - JUL 31, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2016 Very bland on the palate. Little or no hops in the flavour which is grassy. A bit of bite on the palate but no aroma to speak of. Second pint a little better. Mild toffee hints. Aroma though still poor.

Geoffknight (2) - boston, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015 does not count
A cracking refreshing beer. It looked like lager when poured. It was light with a citrus taste. No strong aroma. would go well with a bbq.

wheresthepath (2104) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
Cask at the Retreat, Reading. Golden-amber in hue, with a thick white head. Mild caramel and light citrus. Frankly a bit bland. The body is decent, so it might make a reasonable session beer, but in the flavour stakes it does fall a little short.
