UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 Pours orange-yellow colour, thin white head. Very hoppy, citrus aroma. Fresh flavour of hops, citrus and elder with strong bitter aftertaste. Refreshing and not too strong summer pale ale.

Bottle from Tesco - pours dull orange with a thin off white head which quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of orange, pale malt, grassy hop. Taste of caramel, light maltiness, orange. Medium body, low carbonation, oily mouthfeel.

500 ml bottle. Colour is golden Amber. The smell is citrusy and Hoppy, it reminds me of a fruit yoghurt, peach yoghurt may be. Taste is quite citrusy, the taste dies off quite quickly and leaves you with a malty after taste. An okay bottle but not sure I’d necessarily rush back to it.

JorgeLee (2116) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2017
Bottle, Tesco online. Mid amber colour, little bubbly white attempt at foam. Very easy drinking, smashable bitterness, some bready malt, a light fresh citrus hop, tasted a bit sweet/peachy. Sessionable and somehow slipped down without really attracting attention to itself.

Out for a "business" lunch today and there's a handful of average pub beers in stock so I plump for this one. "Thar she blows", the dark amber beer makes a thin head that was speedily gone. Nose has a slightly restrained bouquet of citrus, the lime predominates with some mellow malts in the background mix. Mouthfeel is medium thin and suits the beer type well Upfront is a penetrating lively, lovely lime and lemon this is soon left behind and then a slightly sharp metallic flavour permeates it's way through for a few moments. Then following through is a blended mellow malt and hoppy bitterness that smooch together to conclude the encounter. Maybe it's because I am in a posh steakhouse eating a Moroccan chicken salad and Nina Simone is singing Mr Bojangles in the background but I've taken a shine to this beer; Nice.

From can into a pint glass. Pours a dark amber with a light white head that quickly goes down to a small white lacing. Aromas of citrus and bread. On the hoppy side with some sweet notes of citrus. Light-to-medium body with sharp carbonation. Finish is mildly bitter.

A tasty golden ale that was drunk cold from the bottle, on a sunny Friday evening on the school playing field while waiting for my oldest to be delivered back from a week-long adventure trip. Bliss. You don’t need all the fancy stuff, just a good solid beer like this in the sunshine chatting with friends. Gentle malt, bitter hops and beautifully thirst quenching.

On tap at kino siska Ljubljana. Golden, white head quickly dissipates. Aroma of bread, low lemongrass, citrus, low fruity notes. Not much body, bitterness not harsh. Overall quite drinkable but not that impressive.

GeorgePratt (77) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Pours a dark amber with a medium white head. Aroma of pine, hops and a slight spice. Taste of caramel and spice with a bitter finish. Very nice.

Can at Tattersall’s, Newmarket. 01/04/17. Hay and floral aroma. A hoppyness to it. Amber. Frothy white head. Medium bitter. Hippy. Underlying caramel sweetness. Light bodied. Sharp carbonation. Long but low key finish. Pretty enjoyable.
