COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A delicious and refreshing golden ale, ideal for summer drinking. Brewed using the finest English malt with the perfect combination of choicest First Gold, Hersbrucker and Styrian Goldings hops, this ale has a zesty aroma and notes of citrus peel complemented by a bitter twist on the finish.

worldbeertaste (1637) - - OCT 2, 2012
Pale amber with a thin somewhat lasting frothy beige head. Smells of bread, malt, cherry and a light chemical staleness that is common for all beers from Shepherd Neame. I’m sure the clear glass doesn’t help keep the taste or smell any fresher. Medium to light thin to oily body. Tastes mass produced but still reasonably drinkable. Chemical, malt, biscuit and a bitter-sweet finish. Some citrus hops are noticeable in the nose and taste but not enough.

Mr_Pink_152 (711) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Golden and clear with a fruity aroma upon opening. Some citrus is present and there is a bitter finish. A value for money bitter/golden ale.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle from Sainsburys, Bicester, August 2013 consumed at home in garden Sunday 17th August 2013 Pours clear warm gold with white head. Oh how I despair over some English hops and boiled sweet beers. Described as fruity yet bitter, what utter shite, it’s got a metallicy twang taste of ’Happy Shopper’ boiled sweets and is just utter rubbish. The fact that it looks good and the rose bush was happy with the watering are the only positives I could draw. A4 A4 T3 P2 Ov7 2.0

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear darker golden beer with a small, off white head on top. Aroma is slight honey, some sweet malts. Flavour is fairly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Not too interesting.

jmgreenuk (4364) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle from Sainsbury’s :-) Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is malty with a few honey notes. The flavour is medium bitter, hoppy with a smooth palate. Super refreshing and light. Great for the summer.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottled 12/04/13. An amber coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. Quite a lot going on actually. Some grainy malts. Chocolate. A hint of citrus. Pretty decent and nicely quaffable. Good in the mouth especially the chocolate flavours.
