(Bottle) Very pale yellow beer with a decent frothy head. Light, fruity aroma. Flavour is light and fruity as well with a bit of sharp hop thrown in as well. Slightly bitter finish but it’s somewhat short-lived.

Honey gold with a soapy, thin white head. Very light fruit, grain aroma. Taste is the same, creamy with a mild bitter. Extremely light, but very nice.

mighty_meadow (246) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Pours amber bit like a decent lager. Aroma of orange, marmalade, hay, light spice. Taste is well balanced with a slight tart, spiced orange finish due to the citrus. Easy to drink with gentle carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Orange becomes more prevelant as you get down the glass. A real bargain at only £1 for a 500ml bottle in Morrisons at the moment.

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pale malts with a decent amount of bitter hops. Flavor about the same. Average to light texture. Not bad for the style and alcohol content.

imdownthepub (10648) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons, Banbury. Gold with white head. Malty, light beer, quite fruity, lemony in character, almost lager like, but reasonably sharp and fresh. Not bad really.

puboflyons (2224) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2012
From the 500 ml. bottle with an expiration date of Dec 2012. It pours golden yellow with a moderate, short-lived head and a tad on the cloudy side. Aromas of malts, yeast, and a little citrus. The body is moderate with a smooth creaminess. The taste tends to come off as much more bitter than the aroma leads one to believe.

Blah. Very bland. Theres floaty things in my beer. Looks like someone puked in it before it was sealed. Golden pour, lack there of aroma and flavor.
