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.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a creamy head. Floral-citrus aroma with a soured but fruity enough taste that provides a fair but medium bitterness.

olsvammel (3578) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
On tap at a pub in the Oxford area. Hoppy smell with flowers and fruits. Similar taste. Easy to drink.

mR_fr0g (4000) - 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 (927) - 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 (4150) - 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.

Cask at the Yorkshire Terrier. Pours amber with a beige head. Light fruity citrus aroma. Med body. Light stone fruit bitter with citrus. Very nice.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Cask at the Victoria Inn, Rugby, 06/03/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is light hops, pale malt, grass, citrus, sugars. Taste follows nose with a touch of spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok stuff.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Cask Real Ale tasted at Kittys. Mild nose. No head. Golden color. Roasty and malty hoppy taste with some lemon notes. More than average hops. Hops bite at the end.
