Cask & Bottled;
By sourcing the best English hops including the exceptional Cascade, recently produced for the first time by English growers and combining them with the finest malted barley, we’ve made a beer that is high in complex aromatics, with floral, cedar and citrus notes, and a long bittersweet finish.

500ml bottle from Asda. Pours very pale straw yellow with smooth white head. Biscuity aroma with light sweet apple and pear scents. Taste is thin with less bitterness than expected for the style - slightly too honey sweet for my tastes. Flavours of honey and toast.

SaintMatty (6164) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2015
500ml Bottle - Golden in colour. Lemon, tea and some slightly soapy notes in the aroma. Soapy hops, grain, lemon and tea can all be detected in the taste.

Graham77 (319) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Aroma is grassy for me the flavour is typical English Pale/Golden ale. Clean and refreshing but uninspiring. Small head and light carbonation. Decent. I’m impressed that local ingredients are used in this beer.

martinrumsam (562) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Light golden Amber with white head that soon goes straw and light citrus aroma lightly sweet with a crisp modest bitterness in the finish. Quite watery too much carbonation. Forgettable

On tap at Akkurat. Mild smell, bready malty and some light flowery aromas. Similar taste. Fairly bitter and alcoholic.
