50cl bottle from the Spar in Rhos on Sea. Another well made golden ale which delivers honey and golden malt with a herby citrus zing. It’s nothing special but everything is in the right place and it’s very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Two hand-pulled pints during a Shropshire Cask Ale Festival on 26 Mar 2013 in ’The Haygate’ Wellington.
Light golden and bright body, on top a white crown of small bubbles.
Like so many brews around Shropshire currently, this has a pronounced citrus feel to the smell and flavour: something I’m tiring of. This however touched my taste buds better than most, which is why I had two pints, just to make sure I’d really enjoyed the first one.
The brewer I believe is a New Zealander and he obviously likes using hops from his part of the world in his brews, it worked on this occasion although I’ve not always thought this way with citrusy notes all over my beers.

Has a mild hoppy and citrus aroma that is more pronounced and full in its flavour.
