A golden beer whose aroma is dominated by hops that give characteristic citrus notes. Hops and fruit on the palate are balanced by malt and a bitter base. Dry hoppy finish with soft fruit flavors. A nationally respected ale, winner of numerous awards, JHB is a blond baby packed with flavour & perfect for those long sessions as well as a quick pint at lunchtime. This popular beer was crowned Champion beer of britain in the bitter category in 2001 and 1999.
Challenger and American Mount Hood hops.

Good tasting beer with a definite citrus aftertaste. The low alcohol makes it a very good session beer

ThirstyBird (2379) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
On cask at their restaurant - poured golden yellow with a white call. The smell was grain, citrus, grass. The taste was biscuit, grass, mild dry citrus, with light body and mild carbonation.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 14, 2014
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Dark golden yellow, pretty clear, with a tiny, non persistent white head. Pretty delicate smell, floral and citrusy hops, a hint of butter, white bread and grass. Very English indeed with an American twist. Pleasent bitterness, slightly soapy, subtle but clean malty backbone. Rather good hoppy aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Easily quaffable and thirst quenching. Pleasent golden ale.

mkel07 (4664) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Emporium February 2014. Lighter side of light as far as flavour and aroma goes. Not bad but just doesn’t really do anything for me.

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Kolor slomkowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana niska, kremowa, szybko opada, ale mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie zbozowa slodowosc i lekki chmiel o cytrusowo-zywiczno-lesnym charakterze. Aromat malo intensywny, ale przyjemny i rzeski. W smaku dominuje lekko zbozowa slodowosc, co w polaczeniu ze spora wytrawnoscia i gladkoscia sprawia, ze jest bardzo pijalne. Goryczka niska, ale mocno sciagajaca, o kwasno-lodygowym zacieciu, bardzo przyjemna. Na finiszu pojawiaja sie lekkie owoce tropikalne. Wysycenie symboliczne, w zasadzie prawie niewyczuwalne.
