Crafted by the master brewer of "Old Speckled Hen", this light golden beer, delivers both flavour and refreshment. Brewed using the finest pale malts, and the rare Galaxy hop to give a light golden colour, subtle tropical fruit notes and a deliciously smooth finish.

Pint at the Rose and Crown in Reading. Amber brown with short lived bubbly head. Nice dried fruit aroma. Light, bitter, dry and fruity. Refreshing. Could be a decent session ale.

NikkTwist (1746) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Clear amber pour with a moderately fizzy head that left a lingering foam. Sharp bitter with some refined caramel in balance. Still fizzy on the tongue despite the cask. Well blended. Feels simple, but also cleverly perfect. Quite nice.

kwik-lime (1382) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Quite a sweet bitter, lots of malt prevalent, slightly cloying. Not bad but not one I’d look out for.

Clear Golden pour with small off-white head. Smooth sweet very pale malts slightly fruity and marginally hopped. Dryish finish. Easy drinking but nothing terrible exciting for the palate

On tap at Global Brew. Decided to rate here as it was on tap versus bottle, but not cask either. Pours a bright pale golden color with an OK white head that diminished fairly quickly. Taste was a smooth mouthcoating sweet very pale malt with little hop bitterness and a bready character. Very much like a Boddington’s. Pretty good.

On tap at the vintage, nice place. Slightly darker than pale lager. Nice lacing. Cery little co2 onthe taste buds. Earthy feel to it. Easy going and better than expected. Yes, pretty good! Nice overall beer drinking experience. Creamy mild sizzling thing onthe tongue.

Cask at the Junction - St Denys (So’ton) - 09/09/12. Clear golden with a thin slightly off-white head. Light hops, malt, fruit and citrus on the nose. Tastes of malt, background citrus and a little spice in the finish. Getting that GK taste, the yeast strain etc! Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
