500ml Bottle as a gift from Lake District:
Quite a disappointing beer sadly, there wasn’t a whole lot going on with it and despite the odd burst of sweetness there wasn’t really anything to grab your attention. Quite a basic and very ordinary beer really and not one that I would recommend picking up.

50cl bottle from Ambleside Wines. Appearance - golden with initially a nice head but it fades quickly. Nose - floral and lemon notes. Taste - lemon and grapefruit. Some maltiness. Palate - light bodied with a light zingy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - it’s a simple formula but they’ve nailed it really well.

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle from Ambleside Wines. Blonde ale, slightly cloudy with a small, soapy head. Sweet bit weak aroma of apple, citrus and ginger. Taste has few surprises: standard bitter citrus with a watery mouthfeel and a short, dry finish. Very light, very drinkable but very unremarkable.

zacgillbanks (4454) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle from Open All Hours in Keswick. Golden coloured with a rich caramel flavour, strong woody notes and a bitter biscuity finish. Bonus points for being under 4% ABV.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 Light medium gold with a lasting creamy lacy soapy head. Fruity, (peachy), strong malt and hop smell. Thin watery creamy body. Sweet start of malt and fruit with a hop bitter finish. Creamy biscuit Nice and smooth. A little watery. But a great malt taste.

Cask, Carlisle BF. Really fresh, fruity aroma and a great pale gold appearance. Bittersweet, with some hints of apple, nice soft bite on the tongue and a medium finish. Good carbonation on the tongue. Another enjoyable beer from this small Cumbrian micro.
