Cask @ Smithfield Hotel, Manchester.
Pours clear golden with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is pleasant, sweet malt, piney, grassy and flowery hops. Light carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour has ginger, light pepper, sweet malts and a little caramel. Just enough hops to balance it okay.

cgarvieuk (15163) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2009
Ok... in a departure from normal rating... due to the INCREDIBLY high number of BLOND ales during the Shefiled trip that all blended into one another im breaking them down into three catagories

Catagory A : Golden Yellow ... light fruity lemon hop nose ... soft dull light lemon hop

Catagory B : Amber ... light dry lemon hop ... soft light lemon hop with a little malt in background

Catagory C : Amber ... soapy lemon nose ... light brigh lemon hop

Catagory D : Amber ... light grassy lemon hop ... dry grassy lemon hop

Catagory E : Amber ... light grapefruit hop ... again light hop with a little grapefruit

This is a Catagory D
