A beer that is as laid back as you could ever get! Light and refreshing fruit salad undertones complemented with a hefty dose of zing.

Light haze on this pale god beer. Little white head. Very light palate with equally light carbonation. Mild tangy hop, orange and tangerine with some dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Okay but lacks any substance.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
On cask at Craft Beer Co. pale clear gold lasting cream head. Hoppy golden ale with some ascetic notes. Just on border of being too hop acid harsh. Just a touch too ascetic to be pleasant. Good lemon though

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Cobble Inn, Tempest Brewery Tap, Kelso. Gold with white head. The weakest in terms of flavour in the session of this Breweries beers I tried. Light and dry, crisp, a hint of lemon hop, some tanginess, but little to carry it through. Every artist has to have his muse I suppose, this just doesn’t work for me.
