Bottle conditioned. At Wye Valley Brewery we believe in real beer for real people. Simple pleasures shared with friends are what it’s all about. Crack open this pale amber, premium beer which we have bottle-conditioned to bring you fresh, rounded flavours. Enjoy the lovely citrus hop aroma, the full malty flavour and long biscuity finish. Find a friend and open another bottle. Why Not? Tastes great with spicy, smoky flavours such as kedgeree or smoked cheeses. Always serve in good company.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours clear blond with white frothy head. Looks a bit watery. Aroma is a bit biscuity, bit honey. Bit like hobnobs actually. Tiny bit of citrus in there too. Taste is quite plain. Biscuity again and not much else. Feels very thin in the mouth. Maybe a bit too subtle. Not in any way offensive, but not really that noteworthy either. Having said that, I did quite enjoy it in a funny way.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle as part of the Sainsburys challenge. Golden coloured with a short-lived white head and plenty of fizz. Light aroma of cereal malts, sweetish apricot fruit and slightly peppery hops. Flavour had more fruit, solid malts and a lingering, bitter finish. Good.

Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Part of the Sainsburys Super Challenge. Pours a clear, highly effervescent gold with a charming, pure white foam head. Some sugary toast in the nose. Very nice flavor, extremely subtle notes of brown sugar and caramel, plenty of bread and toast, and just a slight bitterness of leaves and grass. Light to medium in body with average, crisp carbonation. Finishes clean and crisp, some toast and mild, herbal hops. The overall character is restrained and the beer is very drinkable.
