A beer well hopped with Challenger/Bramling cross hops with a base of fine pale malt and wheat gives a light straw coloured beer with a lasting fruity aftertaste.

Not to my taste. Grassy aroma which I don’t like. A little harsh on my palate. Good citrus flavours but overall not for me.

Marstonlad (452) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Cask at the White Rabbit, Oxford. Pours pale golden with a dense little head. Aroma is floral and fruity, the British hops used are noticeable. Taste is light bitter and fairly fruity with some citrus appearing, dry toward finish. The palate is light, slick and drinkable. Simple, easy golden ale.

jamesie1857 (1458) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
On cask at Red Lion, Kegworth - Orange body, thin loose head. Sweet honey-like malty aroma. Sweet malty body, a bit of Ryvita to it, sweet hops, with sticky bitterness at the back of the palate. Some milkiness, loads of light grains. Not a bad little starter.

BlackHaddock (4049) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Royal Blenheim, Oxford: a White Horse brewery owned pub. Or pub crawl was staggering to a conclusion when we reached here (23rd Nov 13) and my taste buds were most likely shot, my notes are a bit patchy and rough but I did enjoy this beer even if it was a little on the ’citrus’ side of the hop scale. Pale golden colour with a thin covering of bubbles. The aforementioned citrusy hops ruled the nose and taste with an undertone of malty sweetness just below the surface. Medium depth of body and a pleasant enough beer, even if the finer points have been forgotten by me.
