A well-hopped and well-balanced, brownish amber session beer. Refreshing, with light citrus hoppy notes and a fresh clean finish. The one beer to have when you’re having more than one.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle. Amber in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Floral hops, biscuity malts, a touch of citrus fruit, leading to a moderately bitter finish. Good.

Holmen1 (4907) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2015
Håndpumpet half pint på Anglesea Arms, South Kensington: standard utseende og aroma for en lett bitter, med grei men ikke spesielt minneverdig smak av lys citrus og litt gress. Forsiktig bitterhet i avslutningen, halvtørr.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Cask at the Market Tavern, Durham, £3.65/pint. Deep amber beer with a white head that diminishes to nothing. Hay and light floral notes in the aroma lead into a sweet, floral hop-led flavour that while not unpleasant is nothing special. The brewery seem to be pitching it as a perfect session ale; sessionable yes, memorable no.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Cask gravity, The Mortar and Pestle, HNK. Headless amber. Buttery-in-a-good-way, spiced apple like fruit, green sappy suggestions, bags of honey. Nose fresh like strawberries and honey. Butterkist Rich at low ABV. Decent.
