Crystal clear yellow, aroma of light grapefruit, thin white head, slightly heavy body for style, slightly sweet, hop aroma doesn’t follow through enough in the taste. Quite drinkable regardless.

Gravity dispense at the 23rd Battersea Beer Festival - 06/02/13. Lightly hazed pale golden. Nose carries lemon sherbet, orange, pale malts, light hops. Taste comprises pale malts, citrus, grass, light smokey notes. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation with some bitterness in the finish. Ok drikable stuff but I’ve had better from Redwillow.

MalcolmTucker (830) - SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Cask at Southern. Pale yellow with white head. Light fruit hop profile that i wasn’t too keen on and a tad thin. A golden ale that I might’ve appreciated more on a summer day than a snowy winter night.

jamestulloch (2029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: Peachy and floral with caramel notes.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with fairly sizeable yeast flecks floating around. Massive white head that holds really well. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing.

Taste: Nice balance between caramel and citrus flavours. Tastes a little soapy with bitter, unripe pear notes.

Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Definitely doesn’t live up to its name - the head on this was huge! It’s hoppy but the citrus flavours taste unripe rather than punchy and juicy.

Pudding (204) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
500ml bottle. A nice drink. Highly carbonated, with deep, loose head. Hops maybe Saaz, that is peppery, spicy. Quite like a low gravity Belgian triple.

Very nice blond ale, strong hop aroma and taste with a big hit of fruit, an excellent beer which I would have again

28th october 2012 Bottle home on a cold autumn night, early snow, this may be enjoyed best in the summer, anyway, pours clear, certainly not headless, big head that grows, aroma is weak, but fresh, taste is nice for the abv, overely carbonated for me, not that memorable and not a patch on wreckless
