COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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. 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.

Had this bitter in the Wee Howf, Paisley in May 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight malty aroma with marmalade notes, short in intensity. Pale malts noted in body with sweet Florida grapefruit and kiwi fruit evident. Dry floral hop in the dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish has a metallic edge to it. A decent session bitter.
