Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, - FEB 7, 2008
Gravity at Wellington, Brum. A massive smack of elderflower and gooseberry right off, just like a New Zealand S Blanc! Dry, malty, very bittr with mounds of those delicious gooseberry hops and some astringency, this is a rather extreme beer for the UK and a welcome return to form by Abbeydale.

On cask at the Bow Bar. Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - citrus and floral. Taste - more of the same. A green stalky note comes through on the finish. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - could drink pints of this. Nay, gallons.

jackafholmes (1000) - - OCT 25, 2014
Pint from harrisons, Sheffield. Golden ale with perfect bright white shiny head. Aroma is hoppy and sharp, grapefruit and hay dominate. Taste is bitter and dry, refreshing. Nice subtle carbonation giving a silky medium body. Lovely beer, a triumph.

JohnCook101 (535) - - MAY 16, 2014
Draft. Pale amber, no real head. Nice fruity aroma. Flavours of tropical fruit, straw, very little malt. Slightly watery, could do with a bit more body, but enjoyable nonetheless.
