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.

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2009
[cask @ RBESG 2009] Fresh UK hops aroma with slight sulfur and caramel notes. Almost clear gold with a white lace and cover. Nice caramel and fresh hops flavour that is missing bitterness, which kicks in too late. Light to medium body, low carbonation, very slight bitter finish.

Nuneaton ’Spoons whilst Octo shopped. Straw with white collar, faintly woodsy aroma, lacework aplenty. Negligible soapy Fairy Liquid hopping, oaty softness, peanut husk. Refreshing and all that but pretty crap really. Tires over a half.
