500ml bottle form brewery’s online shop. Pours clear gold, thin, short-lived white head. Aromas of light citrus, something grainy. Taste is light sweet, decent citrus bitterness for the style. Clean finish. OK.

beeebon (404) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Tangerine and lemon citrus on the nose, pretty decent smelling. Taste has citrus with biscuit and butterly malt. Slightly piney notes in there too and a mild bitterness on the finish. So far the best Penpont beer I have had, really quite drinkable and nice, shame it’s a bit thin and watery which lets it down a bit.

Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold, lightly effervescent with a fine, creamy white head. Nose has some doughy white bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of doughy pale malts, some straw, cereal, dry lemon. Light bodied with fins carbonation. Simple doughy malt finish, lightly astringent, white bread, some lemon merengue.

imdownthepub (13390) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottled, 500ml present from Sandra, thank you. Gold with white head. This beer had quite a sharp grainy, slightly stewed note initially. There is an earthy hop note, tree bark with a slight fungal character. Not one I would return to.
