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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2010 1)The Buck and Bell, Long Itchington ’08. Anaemic yellow, slightly misty, nitro-creamy. Shandyish flat lemonade aroma. Hay, watery citrus, pleasantly mealy cornflake afters. 40% lager hops. No off-notes or anything, but Heineken’s got more hop character than this dribble of tedium. What’s the point? 535211. 2) The Mill Hotel, Chester. Straw with a dense white collar. Soapiness, wafers, impression of corn, lingering bitterness and peanut husk, cream custard crumbs. Faint tropical hop aroma. Lime coming through; good leafy hop and lime on nose as collar subsides. Just needs the hops turning up. Solid. 373613.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2008
Cask at the Blue Bell, York. Aroma and taste of hay and citrus. A bit disappointing in its blandness. Not bad, but not great.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2008
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with a light malty note. The flavor is sweet and more malty, combined with citrusy notes of hops, leading to a slightly bitter finish. The body is thin.

Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2008
Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Yorkshire BF ’08. Golden colur with small white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, hoppy. Taste is pretty much the same with nice bitter finish. Decent enough beer.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at the Blue Bell, York. I’m sure I’ve had this better before; I wasn’t very impressed this time. It’s in the style of a Castle Rock Harvest Pale or Oakham JHB but without having the strong hop flavours or satisfying finish.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 4, 2007

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
A rather yeasty offering of a clear golde yellow colour topped by a quickly fading white head. Citrusy hops make up most of the aroma’s interest as they spring up with grapefruit and lemony whispers while the grainy malts stay satisfied with their tiniest hay-like hints. Mineral impression lasts for a while in the finish where the hops take less room and leave more to a watery growing feel. Under average.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Blue Bell York. Golden. Some Nutty malt flavours and citric strawy hops. Slightly dusty earthy feel in the finish. Reasonable but I’m not sure this is how it should taste.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Cask, Bon Accord, Glasgow, RBESG 07. Clear straw, thin white head. Nose is grassy hop, mouth is much the same, disappointingly. Some malt towards the end, finishes sweet and metallic.
