Wild Swan is white gold in colour with aromas of light bitter lemon, a hint of herbs and a subtle spiciness. A great refreshing beer.

dogbomb (1139) - ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle. Gushed upon opening, but poured to a hazy light straw with large bubbly top which mostly disappeared. Light grapefruit and malt on the nose. Citrus in the mouth, night and light and matches what the ABV is telling you. Leaves a nice tingle of bitter and spice in the palate too. Quite a thriller at this ABV, and lovely for a hot summers day.

laiti (7871) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 16.10.2012
Aroma has some harsh, lager‐like grainy malt. Also some hops, sweetish peaches and hints of hay. Flavour has rather much hops, some peaches, lemon and grainy malt. Refreshing and surprisingly good when looking at the ABV. Good for sessions like the deScription says.

BlackHaddock (5637) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2012
500ml bottle: best before 16 Aug 2012, opened on a warm and sunny 24 May 2012. It is certainly pale, even for a ’pale ale’ and it reminded me of urine, especially with it’s white frothy head. The smell is all citrus hop: grapefruit and lemon aromas mostly. The taste follows the smell: citrus flavours and hoppy with a bitter undertone at all times. Pleasant and easy to sip, the alcohol level although low, suits the body strength nicely. All in all a nice enough beer, but not really exciting or more-ish.

tommann (3186) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours very pale gold with a large, frothy head. Aroma is mango, pineapple and lager malts. Taste has lager to start. Bitter finish with some pineapple. Little mango on the aftertaste.

taganaya (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Cask at Hillary Step, Manchester. Very well balanced, though smells maltier than it is. Nice tangy hops, grapefruit and lemon notes.

Tomethy (33) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012
Palest beer I’ve ever seen. Smell of lemon and Campari. Taste though is minimal- slightly biscuity. Overall, decent for ABV, but simple.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Thornbridges 'baby beer'. Light and refreshing with a half decent bitter kick at the end. Decent aroma but not much in the way of taste or body. Still, at 3.5% what you want? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorgeLee (1611) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Bottle from Waitrose. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin butvlasting white head. Floral aroma, flowery lemon hop flavour and lengthy bitter finish. Extremely quenching and drinkable.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
50cl bottle. Light yellow pour, not too much head/lacing. Aroma full of delicate citrus and tropical fruit, bit of light spice, touch of garden herb - all very subtle. Taste is again very delicate - lovely light biscuit malt complimenting the fruity tropical hop notes. Satisfying light bitter finish - great session beer, lovely stuff.

50 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours pale golden color with small head. Aroma of herbs, grass, hoppy fruits and mild floral notes. Flavour of lemony fruits, dry hay, herbs and mild malts. Surprisingly good.
