A blonde beer brewed with four different types of high alpha acid hops to give a wonderfully mellow flavour, a hoppy aroma and a crisp dry aftertaste.

RichardGretton (4653) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Cask@2006 Derby Winter Beer Festival. Pale beer with a light airy head. The aroma is vinous and the flavour is like a fruity wine with a fruity bitter finish. Overall a poorish beer.

Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] A pale yellow beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy combined with lesser notes of lemon. The flavor is very hoppy and grassy combined with notes of alcohol - almost American in style.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2005
Hand pulled at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Very hoppy indeed: big citric, aggressive. Some pepper and grapefruit. Almost harsh in the aftertaste, but still palatable and still fresh. Good, hard stuff.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2005
Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London .
Golden blonde with a proud, bright white head. Soft white appearance is overcome with pineapple, fruit salad hop aroma. Bags of hop aroma, tore through the MP dense atmosphere, so much so that even Sully would have been impressed. Generous lickings of flavour as well. Balance and with purpose. Very delicious indeed.

Still, clear and gold in appearance. Aromas are oranges, spices and some pear. Flavours are also fruity, with pepper, pear and a bitter finish. Has a long dry aftertaste. Not bad.
