COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A brand new addition to the line-up for 2010, this pale coloured ale is full bodied, well-rounded and slightly sweet on the palate.
A generous late addition of Mount Hood hops result in a delicate fruity hop aroma.

Cask, handpump at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 23-07-10 This looks great a real stunner in the looks department, gold with white head. Clean, crisp and fruity in the mouth little dry but just a peasant session beer. A6 A5 T7 P3 Ov13 3.4

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Cask handpull, The Hop, Leeds, 19/04/11. Aroma of paper rubbed lightly with boiled egg, lemon sherbet, celery and minerals. TT-like stewed grass and Yorkshire Snatch character; cream and slate afters. Scones. A bit tedious.

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle (conditioned?) from Rhythm & Booze, Barton upon Humber. Gold, good lasting fluffy white head and gentle condition. Pleasant lemony citrus with a faint trace of sulphur and a touch of sweet malt, quite full and malty in the mouth but with a solid balancing hop bitterness laced with citrus and a slight peppery spiciness which lingers into the finish to be complemented by a drawn out insistent bitterness that never overwhelms.

wimpyjoe (3483) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Pale yellow, clear no head. Fair pale aroma, similar in taste but the body is weak and thin.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in Willy’s brew-pub, Cleethorpes: 30 Mar 2013. Pale gold with a pure white head that produced some good lacing. Refreshing feeling to the brew: hops in the aroma, floral mostly. The taste was also leaning towards hops with a bitterness that was noticable but not ’in your face’; the malt content calmed the hops down somewhat. Easy to drink and pleasing to the eye.

JohnRMurdoch (3170) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Cask @ Troon Beer Festival. Golden yellow, big foamy head. Leafy citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Biscuit & lychee flavour. Citrus aftertaste. A light refreshing blonde beer.
