Pint at "meet the brewer" at the central in Gateshead. Golden ale with a thin white head fresh and fruity, with the currently fashionable grapefruit flavour. I particularly enjoyed that there is more of a malt balance to the bitterness than with a lot of blond ales.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2006 Sept, 2003 <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/14/146 & Thistle - The Gravesend Lunchtime Stroll Very pale yellow Golden Summer Ale. The malt is rather blurred and muggy, clinging unpleasantly and spoiling the citric tang which vanishes too quickly to be replaced in the finish by the greasy malt. Not a great success. Rancid bacon aroma. [1.8]
Aug, 2005 <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/show.sht Holborn. A cool refreshing blonde - like a New Zealand Chardonnay: buttery and fragrant. [3.5]

Dedoulequeen07 (135) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2007
A relatiely light pale lager colour with miniml off white hea. Aroma is grassy, earthy with a sukpur nose when warm. Tste is quite flourally with grassy hop character, some pepper and a long bitter finish. Unusual and Very pleasant.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours semi-clear yellow with a strong, foamy white head. Mostly hoppy aroma of straw and light cereal. Fairly sweet with some easy bread and straw, hay bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry, earth and straw hop finish, with some modest malty sweetness. Nothing wrong here.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
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.

Lovely drink for summer days. Easy drinking not too heavy. Light taste which is great after heavy Christmas eating!
