On tap at HDG. Pours a clear light yellow with a thick white foamy head. Aroma of wheat. Flavor of flowery hops, wheat. Bland, moderately drinkable. Not much going on with this one...

A Mes rate: Tap at the White Horse.
Golden brown with a thin white film. Fairly bland aroma with not much happening other than some slight fruity hops and that’s about it. Sherbert hop flavour with faint tobacco and earthy malt. Decent citric notes but again not much happening. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Too safe and lacking character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 4th July 2008. Clear straw gold in colour with a soft, doughy aroma. Nicely understated. Light and drinkable with a subtle, dry hop finish. I really liked this despite myself. It’s less gassy and nicer tasting than lager.

pours transparent yellow with a thin head. Citrusy initial flavor and stays the same throughout the finish. Very plain, but enjoyable

Draft at GBBF 2006. A yellow beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet fruity - especially grapefruits. The flavor is sweet malty with a strong fruity note - again grapefruit is very present, leading to a dry bitter end.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Lost on Main, Chico. Blond in appearance, as expected, not much of a head here, not much lacing either. Flavor is a bit salty followed by a buttery popcorn taste; mostly buttery, not so much the popcorn... Very drinkable but not outstanding.
