This refreshing, well-balanced, amber-coloured ale is made with 100% Cornish malts and whole hop flowers, resulting in a character where malt, fruit and floral aromas combine with a hoppy, zingy bittersweet taste.

Shakespeare’s Head Spoons, Holborn. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Okay minerally mild hops. A little juicy citrus - shot down by a bothersome sulphur streak.

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Toasted hay on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with notes of dry hay and straw, light nuts and white bread toast. Light in body with fine carbonation. Mild spice in the finish, some bread, straw and light fruits. Pretty basic bitter but not too bad.

imdownthepub (13226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Quite a fruity, light beer with a late hoppy, sharp note, some berry notes, redcurrant perhaps then orange zest in the follow through. I quite enjoyed this one.

Sourish tang of fruit; tangerine and lime hints, apple sauce, gooseberry, biscuit, lingering oat and wheat finish; retronasal saline, rhubarb. Better than reasonable.
