A very pale golden ale. A real hoppy beer packed with American Columbus hops - very bitter and thirst quenching with a satisfying herbal finish and massive aromas.

Hazy, lively golden beer with a thin, frothy head. Citrus and hop in the aroma. Taste is mild hop and citrus/zesty and a real bitter, flowery backtaste.

Bottle, gift from Jim- cheers! Clear gold with a thin white head and a light fizz. Crisp and refreshing, with light pine, grass and lemon. A little understated and rather forgettable, but pleasant enough.
