Cask @ Grand Central, Fallowfield. Lovely light golden colour with thin white head leaving decent lacing. Fruity malty aroma. Slightly sweet initially it leads to a long, bitter finish. Its light palate would make it an ideal summer beer - typically I sampled it in the bloody winter.

Pours a blonde colour, taste is delicate and well balanced. Quite drinkable , but nothing to excite the palate

Have drunk this both on draft in pub and in bottle - the bottled version is just unpleasant, gassy with a strange after taste

HampshirePhil (157) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
500ml bottle - Light amber ale with light froth head (quick to go), smooth light taste but without any real body behind it. Pleasant season drink but not exceptional.

niquillis (1203) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
On cask at Bulls Head Inn, Baildon. Pours very hazy blonde and took an age to settle. Probably sparklered to death. A dry blonde, Ok but there’s better around.

Fluxing (374) - POLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Z pompy, The Royal Oak, Ripon. Kolor zloty, idealnie klarowne. Piana od poczatku jest niska, szybko opada, zostawia jedynie cieniutka obraczke i nie oblepia szkla, slabo. W aromacie dominuja slodkie zboza i chlebowosc, do tego srednio intensywna nuta trawiastego, ziolowego i lekko owocowego chmielu. Bardzo czysty profil aromatyczny, wrecz lagerowy. W smaku intensywnie zbozowe, lekko kwaskowate, bardzo rzeskie i odswiezajace, wlasnie dzieki temu kwaskowi. Bardzo przypomina niemieckiego pilsa. W odczuciu polwytrawne, lekkie, bardzo rzeskie i pijalne, na lato idealne. Goryczka srednia, mocno lodygowa i sciagajaca, dalej ziola, trawa i lekkie owoce. Wysycenie niskie.

500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (5-:3-:5:2:9=2.4--)
Rough aroma, some sticky malts, a bit rotten. Dull blond malats. No point in this existing. Watery and thin.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Bottled. Pale golden colour, small white head. Aroma is floral with hops. Flavour is very similar. Ok blonde ale.

dogbomb (968) - ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Straw ale with a thin white head. Nose is light lemons. Taste is bitter, imparting more lemon, grapefruit and some light bready notes. A touch of spice there, but not overbearing and makes this a good supping beer, without rocking the boat. Nothing special, but decent enough.
