An easy drinking session beer. Not overly hoppy. Often on special offer in Morrisons!

Niall73 (1869) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Cask at The Railway, Tulse Hill. Pours a clear gold with a creamy white head. Malty, doughy aroma, a hint of lemon. Medium body, mild carbonation. Cereal, white bread toast, a hint of marmalade, lemon with a mild bitterness. Not offensive, but pretty mediocre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear pale blond appearance. This is a light and refreshing bitter with a touch of citrus. Not very flavoursome.

Tom303 (90) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Light golden colour with creamy head, sweet malt/fruit aroma with taste to follow. A fairly sweet beer overall but with some nice hop flavour and good body for a fairly light ale. Another ale that might appeal to lager fans. Delicious and easy drinking.

Cask on a visit back to Preston. Could hardly seem to move for the stuff! Pale god, good white head. Light floral/grassy hops, light caramel. Nice balance on the taste, good finish. Not bad.

Vladivostok (273) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Slight aroma of newly mown grass allied to a flavour of freshly baked bread. Gently hopped and slightly sweet with a short-medium finish. Refreshing.
