Light golden in appearance, this thirst quenching session bitter is fruity and light. Use of hops from both Worcestershire and Slovenia gives it a distinctive hop character. Well balanced with a dry finish and spicy floral aroma.

Cask at The Wilkes Head, Leek. A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet fruity malt like apple and orange plus floral and grassy hops. Taste again of fruity malt like apple and some red berry, citrusy orange, spice and floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A pleasant fruity finish. A drinkable, session ale.

The_Osprey (6351) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cask. Dark amber, hazy, a bit cloudy, very big foamy white head leaves some short-term lacing. Aroma is soapy. Body is light, low carbonation. Taste is watery with jasmine and maybe lavender - definite floral character in any case. Finishes with a soft bitterness.

Draft at GBBF 2013 - London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a bubbly white head. The nose has ripe citrus fruits and light wood tones. Light to medium sweet with pale bread and dried orange. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Moderate sweetness to finish, lightly dry, with more dried citrus fruits. Good, sessionable stuff.
