FTA: seasonal blond ale. Sampled various batches ages ago. I wonder how is it doing now? Loved it. It was smooth and refreshing.

Cask at The Mulberry Leaves, Leek (Marstons) A clear golden colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of lemon sherbet, some caramel, a little honey, grass and floral hops. Taste of light caramel, pale malt, lemon, some orange, grass and floral hops. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A light floral bitterness in the finish. A solid summer ale, well balanced.

Gorgeous aroma. Nice head. Smooth and quite creamy but very bitter. Looks a bit weird when it pours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWS9 (548) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Fairly plain hazy gold pour. Quite light, some fruit and citrus, but nothing making a statement... Minimal hop kick. Fairly drinkable and inoffensive, but nothing going on here.

Cask at the Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Light to medium gold, wispy white head. Pleasant lemony aroma with a bit of candyfloss. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t live up to the promise in the scent of the beer: slight bitterness leads to an unpleasant buttery acidic note in the finish and aftertaste. The beer grows on me but it isn’t an impressive product.
