COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - February.
A very pale beer. Moderate bitterness and delicate maltiness on the palate. Due to a generous addition of hops at the end of the boil, fruit and spice notes are detected in the aroma.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival on 24 February 2011. Pale gold / silvery colour - trademark Ossett appearance. Loose white head. Modest condition. Dry and clean but a bit short of depth. Quite dry. Very drinkable but nothing particularly distinctive. Perhaps could have been rather more vibrant had the condition been a bit more lively.

sm89walt (1764) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Trafford Arms, Norwich. Part of their Valentine’s beer festival. Bubbly, doming white head, mostly lasting, soapy lacing and a golden body. Mild butter initially on the aroma that slowly subsides. Redeemed by the crisp grapefruity, lemony citric hop & light tangerine notes. Bitter grapefruit & grassy hop flavour profile, some gentler orange tones too. Soft mouthfeel with a delicate spritz, light to medium body, crisp & refreshing finishing with a lingering grapefruit bitterness.

Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Pale gold with white head. Light malty body carrying a grassy, citric grapefruit hoppy beer, with a long dry bitterness. Nothing really complex about it, just a decent bitter.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A straw coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. The aroma has lemon and grapefruit citricity from the hops. The taste has grapefruit bitterness. Maybe a little harsh but the hops are nice and pronounced.
