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.

Leighton (18082) - 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.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2011
500ml bottle as part of the Sainsburys beer challenge 2011. Clear gold colour with lasting near white thin head. Some nettle bitterness on aroma. Some perfumed stone fruit flavour in the mouth. Some bitterness on the finish from the Target hops. It’s a kind of peach/apricot golden ale. Certainly not unpleasant. And quite drinkable on a hot evening in a pub garden. Unfortuntely I was sat in my flat on a cold miserable windy September evening.

Bottled 19/05/12. A light golden beer with little head. Digestive biscuity malt notes. Very lemon and orangey hops. Nice citrus bitterness. A bit of spice too. Well balanced and tasty although the citrus seems a bit forced.
