Cask: Golden blonde colour. For a beer this light, it has a very fine creamy texture, not watery at all. Mild earthy hoppiness, and very balanced overall. Not a lot going on, still a thoroughly well-made beer.

500ml bottle. Super light white straw colour, full of carbonation. Big white head that calms down quickly. Hoppy on the nose but also some grassy melon notes. Lovely hop taste and a creamy bitterness on the palate. Just a great beer. Unbelievable flavour and satisfaction and all at 3.5%.

christhoel (196) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Pale gold beer with big white head. Incredibly dry bitter beer, outpunching its ABV considerably for flavour. Oily hops, flowery with a sharp tangy lemon note. There is a light base carrying the long bittersweet finish. Lovely.
