VRobertovich (27) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Clear, amber ale, with low carbonation and a diminishing white, foamy head. A little light-bodied, but by no means watery. Malts of caramel, bread and biscuit are well balanced by spicy and peppery hops, with notes of peaches and citrus. A lovely, refreshing beer, particularly for the summer; would love to have it again!

Hidden_Pooch (316) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
This was the first beer I tried at the British Beer Festival, and it was a great way to start. It had great spice and fruit notes and was perfectly balanced. Too bad I would probably have to fly to England to try it again.

Hardly any aroma but a strong pungent hoppy taste. Light golden brown colour. Quite a farmyard like lingering aftertaste. Not a massive fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
