Unmistakable citrus notes from only the best Cascade hops balanced with a floral aroma and crisp dry finish make this straw coloured ale a fantastic session beer.

Pint from tap@the Alford Arms, Hemel Hempstead@approx 10 degrees C. Pours golden amber with medium white head with sufficient retention. Hoppy. lightly citrussy aroma with just a hint of malt. Fruity, hop dominated taste, again with citrus in the foreground but well balanced with the slightly sweet malt. A lot of taste for the ABV. Fresh and drinkable first pint on a trip to England.

mR_fr0g (6542) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Cask at the estcourt arms Watford. Aroma is berry hedgerow hop with English esters and touch of caramel malt. Flavour is touch of salty, English yeast and biscuit malts. Copper colour with a loose speckled head. A solid cask beer. Palate is medium light with moderate carbonation. Tasty enough.

This is the perfect English traditional ale. Whats more it is only 3.6% alcohol so you can sink a few pints without falling over.

jjsint (1663) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 Cask at Cricketers Arms, Bedford. Clear mid- to dark golden. Sufficient white head. Faint aroma: vinous and grassy. Full sweet taste with bitter twinges. Hop character dominates. Lingering sour-bitter finish is only downside. Tring do not do bad beers, and this is a very good staple beer, belying its low strength with vibrant personality.

BlackHaddock (5193) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 29 Jun 2013. Nice clean amber body, off-white blanket of foam on top. Semi-sweet malty molasses, floral hints with a mild citrusy feel in both the nose and taste. Good balance of flavours with the malts just about winning the overall taste stakes giving the beer a slightly sweeter lean than a hop bitterness. I liked it, and when you consider the alcohol content is only 3.6% ABV the brewer has got a lot of flavours and character into the brew.
