COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

weaselkenievil (1606) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Cask at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Gold with a thin white head. Again, typical beer served in this pub. He does a good job but please give me something more than typical English golden ales. Lemons and citrus, hops, bit of malt, touch of sweetness and a dry finish. Not that interesting to me.

Cask at the Rat & Ratchet on 19th February 2011. Pale, straw coloured with thin white head. Grapefruit citrus in aroma and main bodytaste, and a brief scent of soapiness. Very citric lingering aftertaste again - mainly grapefruit; smooth mouthfeel.

dogbomb (917) - ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle. Light blonde ale with a thin scum of white on top. Nose is light banana and a little malt. Quite full in the mouth, giving more banana, cereals, and a nice sweetness overall. Really easy to drink.

Martin243 (740) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
500ml bottle. Sure it claimed to be 4.5%? Gold with a thin white disappating head. Citrus/sharp vegetable aroma. Fruity citrus flavour with a dry finish. Smooth soapstone palate. Not the best, not the worst, just a little bit better than ordinary.
