COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional.
A pale ale made with lager malts, that compliments the grapefruit citrus flavors from the Cascade hops used throughout the brew, a beer that will give power to the Scourer as he cleans and restores the Ancient White Horse.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2010
@ Royal Oak, Twerton. Golden colour with a slight haze. Fresh, leafy hop nose. Pithy, slightly sticky hop character. Long, dry and very appetizing.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2010
Cask, 3rd Hinckley BF. Hopped up and pale to the point I had to go back and get another half, just to make sure it hadnít been crossed with the Oakham (Citra). Straw with a white rim and lace specks. Grapefruit and pollen aroma- 8. Huge grapefruit punch, background earthy malt, peanut husk, Rich Tea hints. Wow. Lean, punchy, basic. Some really resinous, green, well-wrung citrus here. Pale/dark horse of the festival, no pun intended.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ Royal Oak Twerton. Medium gold, frothy head and lacing. Fairly bright hoppy aroma is pleasant, although some pedio does emerge by pintís end. Smooth and soft. Really great bitterness here. An excellent hoppy mild I could drink a lot of.

Fin (7410) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Bell Beer Festival, Adderbury, Nr Banbury, Oxon, 04.09.10 I am not 100% certain of the colour as I had this poured straight into my tankard, though I think it is looking a bit golden, there is a white head atop. Crisp citrus showing from the off. There are big grapefruit flavours, its a crisp, refreshing beer, with a constant bitterness running through and loads of grapefruit, tasty stuff and one of, if not my favourite beer of the day.

Cask@The Southampton Arms. Golden collour, small white head. Aroma is bready, malty, mild wooden, fruity and herbal notes as well, Flavour is quite similar. Hayish and quite grassy finish.

ladnewton (1417) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 26 July 2010. Gold body with slight haze, and a thin lacing off-white head. Grass hop kick and citric back-taste of lemon, then grapefruit. A fine finish results from grapefruit and herbiness of the hop, and the mouthfeel texture is zingy. A very pleasant enjoyable pint.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a white head. Citric hop aroma. Rather a thick, heavy, brutish citric taste and sharp bitter finish. Iím getting fed up with this sort of hoppy golden ale to be honest.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2009
[Cask at the Back of Beyond] Murky gold with a slight white head. Farmyard/straw aroma. Tastes harshly bitter at first, but this mellows to reveal a farmyard/straw taste with grapefruit bitterness coming through at the end. Itís OK, but I was hoping for something better from my first beer in over 2 weeks (due to flu).

imdownthepub (10226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale straw, greenish tinge with white head. There is a lovely dry bitterness right from the off with this beer, really hoppy with a grapefruity character. Thin on the palate but lasting flavours in the mouth. Very decent and enjoyable.

RichardW (1514) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2009
Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Pale fruity ale, refreshing and hoppy and maybe a touch too easy to drink at 4.8%......
