500ml bottle. Ahhhhh, memories of summer... Light golden body, clean white head. Fresh, crisp; packed with citrus tastes. Full of life, very well balanced. A good session beer.

InPivoVeritas (231) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Pours hazy golden with small, white head. Aroma of citrus fruits (lemon mostly) with some grainy notes and floral hops. Medium body, moderate bitterness. Refreshing. Decent beer.

bakingjames (5) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2014 does not count
Pours a clear, orange; good head, good lacing. Some stale hops on aroma, as well as significant acetylaldehyde and some bleachy, medicinal notes. Biscuity undertones. So the aroma really isn’t good, but for a 3.9% beer don’t write it off; it has good malty, mildly fruity flavour with really exceptional mouthfeel. I was not surprised at the inclusion of wheat. Good beer for summer and good for sessions.

allmyvinyl (2740) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours very pale yellow, decent thin white head which hangs around. Aromas of lemon, hay, honey, cereal. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. More biscuit towards the end. Clean finish. Not their best, but pretty good.

Niall73 (1334) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Pours a hazy orange colour with a thin head. Aroma is corny. Flavour is corny, lemon and a hint of meatiness. Not great.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Dark golden, whimpy white head. Grainy sweet nose. Dissapointing carbonation doesn’t lift the sweetness enough. Confusing bitterness throughout and a cardboard finish.

Bottle, Cameo Cinema

[500ml bottle, Vino Stockbridge] Pours mostly clear, coppery bronze colour with a miniscule head. Aroma is grassy hay, some herbal element and a faint tingle of citrus. Similar flavours, leaning into a bready, sweet finish [30052013]
