Not bad for what it is. Some caramel. It's just not my style, but if someone offers one, I'll feel free to take it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"not bad for a blonde ale, but nothing distinguished either. a non-descript too highly carbonated non-offensive light semi-refreshing ale. nothing more, nothing less."

AshtonMcCobb (2806) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from Oddbins. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - lemon sorbet with a hint of pine. Some honey. Taste - honey and cereal. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that is really far too cloying. Overall - too sweet for this style.

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 26, 2014
Intensissimo l’aroma di malto e di agrumi, oltre che di punte di resina ed aghifoglie. Bello l’aspetto biondo ramato, quasi arancio, con una schiuma bianco sporco che tende a sparire subito però. In bocca sin presenta inizialmente dolce, dato il bel sentore e sapore Di malto. Corpo medio scarso, carbonatazione lieve, non risulta acquosa e la luppolatura Si avverte sul finale con una chiusura secca quando lunga. Buona birra per la Shipyard.

JonMoore (1886) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle - darkish gold with slim white head. Vague malty, grassy aroma. Mild malty, sweetish taste. Moderate carbonation. OK, sort of.

An average bottled beer that we bought from an off licence in Brighton coz trafalgur wines was closed, pale yellow, a little fizzy, in bottle so don’t know about head or lacing, good train beer but thats it.
