The flagship beer is pale in colour with a subtle hint of grapefruit and lemon in the aroma. The wonderful hop bitterness is complemented by a balanced malt flavour. The beer has a long finish, which is moderately dry.

Draft at GBBF 2013, Day 3 - London. Pours clear gold with a mellow, white cream head. The nose has ripened citrus and light wood. Light sweet flavor with moderate dry bread, some citrus, leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition, it is worth noting. Clean finish with light bitter hay, bread. Super sessioner, this.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Bottle at home, from Wine Rack Burpham, 05/04/13. BB jan ’14. Pours clear golden with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to the edge of the glass. Nose carries malt, citrus, touch of hops, floral notes, caramel, sugars. Taste comprises pale malt, hops, caramel, orange. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation a touch over spritzed, dry finish with some hop bitterness. Carbonation flattens as I progress the journey with this one, upped from 3 to 4 on palate score, assertive hop bitterness in the finish. An OK drinkable bitter.
