COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - Peterborough Beer Festival 2010.
A light, golden ale brewed using lager hops and green tea. Delicate aromas of pineapple and vanilla combine with citrus fruit in a light, tangy palate, carrying through to a dry, lingering bitterness.

sm89walt (1748) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat Brewery Tap/The Cider Shed, Norwich. Poured with a medium sized loose & lacing bubbly white head atop a clear golden body. Crisp, dry citrus aromas with some light toastyiness. Quite a dryish citrus - lemon & lime - flavour profile with a hint of grapefruit at the back. Light to medium body, firm, soft mouthfeel with a hint of spritz and a medium length finish.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Bright, clean gold, with a sweet white topping. Lime jam and goldings on the finish, with some elderflower. Fresh, light, fizzy on the tongue. A gob of fruit pastille too. Lovely and airey.

larsga (6139) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Hazy pale yellow body. Golden fruity floral aroma with resiny strawy notes. Lovely clarity and harmony. Dry-sweet resiny floral fruity taste with strawy herbal notes. Faintly watery dusty mouthfeel. Light body. Dry, faintly acidic, lemony strawy resiny aftertaste. Very nice, and extremely sessionable. (0.5pt at The Rake, London.)

imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Jolly Crispin, Upper Gornal, W.Mids. Pale gold with white head. Top notch Oakham beer again, served in excellent condition. Really quite delicately hoppy, citrus, lemony, biting, plentiful bitterness and yes I did write delicate tea note before seeing the description. Lovely beer.

The Wellington, Brum. Pale gold with a snow white collar. Grapefruit, blackcurrant and passion fruit aroma. Dry rasp of bitterness, nut husk and grapefruit tempered with lychee and red apple sweetness.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Barton Arms, Birmingham 31/08/10. Pale gold with a decent white head. Grapefruit aroma with a touch of pineapple too. Flavour was similarly dominated by grapefruit with a suggestion of resin in the dry finish. Another very good beer from a consistent brewer.
