Osprey87 (1178) - London via, WALES - MAR 30, 2013
March 2013 - room temp bottle. Light colour. Smells of mixed citrus. Taste: There’s a bit of honey and lemon up front, then a soft bitterness. A good balance, and the flavour is a lot better than I was expecting. A decent brew, if slightly watery.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2012
In Spainsbury’s beer-off. Pale gold with a honeycombed white head. Dishcloth lime, elderflower, lychee nose; pleasant taste with herbal, grassy hop notes, shaves of lime and tangerine, flowers. Vanilla/dough/Monster Munch linger with a crisp, ringing citrus bitterness to back it. Discreet honey. Worth drinking again.

Bottle. Golden with a thin white foam. Aromas are lemon marmalade with apricot and base biscuit. Locket lozenges with a light woodiness. Flavours are sweet and jammy with mixed tropical fruit and bitter lemon. Clean and grassy with a dry lightly bitter finish. Pretty good.

Leighton (9851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a mild, white foam head. Aroma holds some floral hops, doughy malts, light cabbage. Medium sweet flavor, doughy malts, white bread, white sugar, mellow straw, some light herbal bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish, light metallic zing, some further white bread malts. There’s a sugary edge in here; perhaps that’s the honey. There’s also an almost respectable hop bite of dry hay that lingers. An OK beer overall.

imdownthepub (9636) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Gold with white head. Light, slightly sweetish beer, there is a honeyed, malty body leading to a fruity, strawberry finish. A touch of bitterness in the close, just could do with more body.
