Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
Citrus and fruity hops flirt with reserved English barley and some very naughty Bohemian malts to make a characterful blonde ale that you’ll want to meet again.

Cask, Orange Tree, 15th May 2015. White lacing. Golden appeaeance. Grapefruit, fruity yeast esters, some honey on aroma. Taste is grapefruit, lemon juice, moderate honey, crisp biscuity malt and a fruity finish which is long. Pretty good golden ale.

Towey1989 (796) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, some apple and grassy hops. Taste is similar of citrusy lemon and apple, dry grapefruit, grassy hops and some berry sweetness. Light bodied and an oily texture. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A decent dry, golden ale. Just not my style.

Bottle from Eebria. Pours clear golden with single finger white head. Aroma of grass, lemon, orange, possible farmyard-y touches. Taste of initial grass, then some maltiness, nuts, biscuit, a touch more farmyard, then orange-lemon finish. Ok.

wheresthepath (1833) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
V142 c4 Cask at the Thame Food Festival- this was the green hop version. Bright, clear gold with a thin white head. Light lemon and a little kiwi up front with some grassy notes following. Smooth, mellow mouthfeel, like many XT beers. Light in body and flavour and none the worse for it. A relaxing, chilled out blonde that you’d happily enjoy all summer. Nice, and grew on me the more I had.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Takeout form PoW, Hinckley. Pours clean brilliant gold with a slender white foam. Good grass and citrus nose with greenery, pineapple, urinal, kumquat and lemon zest. Subtle oatmeal and oak malt richness beneath juicy orange and anise hop. Soap, maybe a dab of butter. Although crisp and tanging. Pick of the XTs I’ve sampled thus far.
