COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle.
This mid-coloured beer was first brewed in May 2010 and is well-hopped and distinctive, with citrus and fruit notes in the aroma, continuing into the flavour, resulting in a well-balanced, bittersweet finish.

Bottle from a Cornish Morrisons. Golden with a white head. Not very much going on with this. Very bland. Some bitter citrus notes but little else.

StueyD (1146) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
A mid amber gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A strange hoppy aroma, somewhat appley, and a touch grassy, then a light malty aroma comes through. Dry and thin mouthfeel. The taste starts off ok, with a prickly hop flavour, but this soon transforms into a tart apple taste. There is a suggestion of malt towards the end, but it doesn’t aid the tartness, which lingers on into the finish.

berkshirejohn (4498) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2012
50cl bottle from a Tesco’s in Salisbury. Amber with a thin cream head; malty aroma with a touch of orange zest; over-pasteurised jammy malt flavour; and a dry, asstingent, finish. Rather mundane.
