COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
A superb mix of Maris Otter pale, Munich and Carapils malts along with East Kent Goldings, Styrian Goldings and Cascade hops. By combining Maris Otter, the best British ale malt, with malts normally used in the finest continental lagers gives a beer with good body, caramelised undertones and a distinct gold colour. This fine recipe gives a beer that will appeal to ale drinkers and lager drinkers alike.

Tried this at the Ypres Castle Inn, Rye, UK. Good smooth/creamy head with good retention. Nice golden colour. Little aroma, some hints of citrus. Some nutty flavour, if being frank little flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Cask at the White Lion, Tenterden. It pours clear golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is toast, floral, light spice and citrus peel. The taste is crisp, citrusy, grainy, toast, floral and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not terribly exciting, but there’s nothing wrong with it either. Ok.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. Golden and clear. Citrus with a slight hoppiness. Well balanced and a good example of this style.
