harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2005
660ml bottle from Sainsburys. Dark gold in colour with thinnish white head. Excellent hoppy nose with some biscuity malt plus loads more green hop tang on the end. Reminds me of an APA but far less sweet. The fruits are peach and lemon and the hop flavour is superb

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2005
660 ml Bottle (16/07/05). PEachy, floral citric hops with a tasty malt balance. Low bitterness but refreshing and balanced.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2005
Poured light golden with a lasting white head. Slight green apple aroma upon opening, which thankfully faded. Mild hoppy aroma present. Flavour is slightly bland biscuity malts, balanced with mildly citric hops. Refreshing summer ale, but nothing special.

Good looking amber beer with a nice fruity, dryly hopped aroma. The flavour is nicely dry and quite refreshing. Overall a particularly good beer.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2005
Faint hoppy aroma,with a hoppy taste that vanishes on the second mouthful.Looks alot like cider,its so flat.I just dont think that its hoppy enough for me-sorry!

leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2005
Deep golden with a persistant off-white head. Aromas are sweet and aromatic hops with a fruity citrus twang. Flavours are biscuit malts with lots of juicy, citrus and floral hops. Nice fruitiness near the end. Dry on the finish with a gentle, not aggressive bitterness. Very good for a supermarket beer - Spa and the Co-op should take note.

Called ’Late Hopped Blonde Ale’. Sparkling carbonation, no yeast evident. Brilliant aroma of citrus hops, peach and apricot. Good Mouthfeel. Excellent hoppy aftertaste. Tastes very fresh and refreshing.
