Easy taste, with some citrus. Not much after taste. A light beer, only 4,1% alchohol.

McWorta (989) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 20, 2015
Golden, clear with a small white head. Aromas of apricot, light citrus, bit hay and biscuit develop. Light carbonation, light slick with a light-medium body. Light fruity sweetness with subtle bitterness. Short finish. Pleasant!

ianwelby (744) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Sainsburys. Slightly hazy, very light yellow beer. Bit lively, thin white head. Zesty, grassy hop smell. Flavour is... slightly disappointing. Tangy, lemony taste but it disippates into an almost watery nothingness quite quickly and only leaves a light, bitter aftertaste. It’s not bad by any means. It tastes nice but it’s disappointing that the flavour doesn’t last longer than it does.

jjsint (1384) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Handpull cask at the Cavens Arms, Dumfries. Mid-gold with a decent white head. Soft citrus aroma, very one-dimensional. I really loved the taste: savoury and herbal, with a note of astringency and the very hint of sweetness around the edges. Dry finish. Very impressive: a simple recipe which exhibits the brewers’ originality and prowess.

chinchill (2984) - South Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2015
500 ml bottle with a BB date stamp of July 2016. Pours with a gold-amber tone and a small head that soon reduces to a ring but manages to leave spotty lacing. Mild aroma with about equal contributions from light malts and spicy hops. Flavor: more flavorful than usual for style as is most obvious in the finish and aftertaste that feature bready wheat and barley malts with a well proportioned addition of hops. Feel: medium-light body; medium+ carbonation; crisp.

Bottle. A by the numbers supermarket golden. These are replacing brown bitter as the generic supermarket ale.
