COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cask. Lager-yellow with a white topping. Minimal carbonation. Aroma struggles to get through the head to the nose, but in the mouth you've got zests, summery fruits, mango, peach, pear. A nice mellow drinking bitter. Could easily session this.

tombyars (1400) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in October 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Sweet fruit aroma with peach and elderflower notes evident. Refreshing but thin mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malts give a delicate fruit note of lychees, gooseberry and elderflower cordial. Floral aromatic hops in the dusty aftertaste compliment the malt well. Sweet fruit notes of syrupy tropical fruit salad gives long juicy notes full in the mouth. An excellent summer session Golden Ale, highly recommended.
