Cask. Yellowish golden colour with a small head. Aroma is very citrusy with some bready and earthy notes as well. Flavour is citrusy, mildly dishwatery notes as well as some bready and mild herbal notes. Easy to drink, but nothing very special.

ManVsBeer (10928) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Cask @ Shoulder of Mutton, Hebden Bridge. Slightly hazed yellow coloured ale with a small creamy head. It’s full of tropical fruit character, more so in taste than aroma with a mild bitterness.

leaparsons (10712) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2003
Quite pale in colour for this type of beer. Light sweet malts are complemented by a clean floral hoppiness. This has flavours below its alcohol so be careful, because this is quite drinkable.
