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.

Crisp still golden, wee white head. Dried out lemon rind nose, slightly clinical edge. Soft peppery, lightly oily and a very crisp drinkability. Big lemon cordial middle, dilluted with a light malt before an easy bitter finish. Fresh try linger. Decent, easy going golden.

Svesse (7727) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2010
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 7 Aug 2010) Pale golden colour with no head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, grass and fresh hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus (mainly lemon), grass and spicy hints of wheat. Medium body, fairly dry with a generous citrussy bitterness. Hoppier and tastier than most witbiers. Welsh witbier perhaps? Quite nice and tasty actually.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Mason & Taylor Hip Hop festival on 22 April 2011. Pale gold. Quite sharp, fruity, citric hops. Clean palate. Fresh, but quite light, mouthfeel. Was convinced I had reviewed this before so only made brief notes. Consequently flagged for re-rate.
