Our flagship brew, and the winner of many beer festivals. This lager style beer with a crisp, dry flavour and citrus fruity aroma is ideal for drinking anytime, but is partcularly well suited to the Spring and Summer months.

This is as typically 'Osset' as Osset get. It seems all their beers are based on this one to some degree, and thats no bad thing. A pleasant citrus taste but accompanied by a certain dryness, almost paper like. It's a good session beer, but others do it better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask at the Bell Bell. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of lemon, pine, grass, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, mild bitterness and a creamy mouth-feel. Not bad.

First tasted this in The Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in June 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale gold in colour with a thick white head. Strong aromatic dusty hops and fresh mown grass notes evident in the long nose. Pale malt base gives booming citric notes of lemon and grapefruit with sweet hints of brown sugar. Strong note of black pepper noted in the spicy hop resins, giving an interesting kick to the aftertaste. Finish is dry and pithy with grapefruit still evident in the mouth. An ok session Golden Ale.
