COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
Sun Top Ale captures everything that is great about the classic British Summers that we fondly remember, is a light beer with a refreshing citrus taste, perfect for quenching your thirst, just close your eyes and take yourself to a favorite summer haunt.
The palest of our beers, being brewed with extra pale Maris otter malt and Amarillo hops, this easy drinking beer has a modest 3.6% ABV so you can drink it till the cows come home.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Gravity, Derby Summer BF 2011. Pale gold with a loose rim of suds. Lightly buttered corn snack aroma, some gentle pine. Simplistic and lemony with a Wotsit dunked in seawater and Alka Seltzer finish. Dunk of card. Almost decent. Just a crushing comedown after the Fyne Jarl.

harrisoni (13280) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle from Liquid Pleasures, Tenterden. Clear gold with lasting white head. Grassy hoppy aroma. Some lemon and light grapefruit and beautiful citrus tropical fruit aromas. A little earthy in the mouth. Decent pale malts. Bit earthy on the finish. Very decent light golden beer.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2010
Cask at Egham United Services Club Beer Festival on 19 August 2010. Pale gold/straw in colour. Loose white head. Lively condition. There’s a whiff of sulphur in the aroma. Clean and fresh on the palate with plenty of citrus, moderate floral notes and a dash of bitterness. The sulphur on the nose persists as a faint tang in the flavour but isn’t disagreeably intrusive. Light but brisk mouthfeel makes for a refreshing pint (or half in this case).

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Man of Kent in Rochester. Pale gold with a thin white head. Thin malt base but full of fresh bitter hops. Nothing out of the ordinary but a competently brewed session ale.
