COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

jjsint (498) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, 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 (3183) - 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.
