A top quality blonde beer made using only Marris Otter pale malt to give a light and refreshing clean taste. Moderately hopped with Challenger and delicate New Zealand Hallertau hops. This is the perfect easy drinking beer for hot summer days!

Summerbreeze (1) - West Molesey, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2014 does not count
Smooth and Comforting taste, very palatable, no bitter after taste, light refreshing and floral. This is one of my favorites!

DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2009 Bottle from a farmshop near Amble, Northumberland, filtered but not pasteurised. Excellent blossomy herbal hop, lemon, honey and biscuit aroma straight out of Munich. Bright gold with a fast diminishing snowy head. Full and slippery on the palate, sliding down beautifully with a flourish of grassy citrus, lychee, crackerbread, lingering biscuity malt and blossom. Lovely soft aromatic bottled English with a dash of Thornbridge Kipling about it, upstaging the cask version on this evidence. Fresh, clean and balanced perfectly between juicy NZ hops and biscuity malt. A better, erm....Kiwi-influenced English helles you will not find.

Pours golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is mild pine and biscuits. Taste is slightly bitter, creamy and a very small hint of hops. Would be perfect on a summers day.

AshtonMcCobb (6897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2017
On cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - golden with a nice lacy head. Nose - meadow flowers and lemon. Taste - tonnes more lemon almost custard. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a lovely smashable beer in fantastic condition. Nailed.

Cask (Museum Vaults, Sunderland) - Golden in colour. Grapefruit, lemon and tea in the aroma. Crisp, hoppy and refreshing taste with lemon, tea, sherbet and grapefruit detected.

imdownthepub (15326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Lindisfarne Meadery, Holy Island, Northumberland. Pale gold with white head. Quite a crisp, malty flavour, a little bitter and fruity. Some bitterness, light and reasonably hoppy.Not bad.

joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Clear golden coloured with a small white ehad. Fruity aroma of grass, hops and caramel with notes of citrus. Fruity flavour of grass, hops and citrus. Dry hoppy finish.

Taste - Some floral hops, some soft cereals, light fruits, easy going, refreshing
Palate - Light body, little oily, touch soapy mouthfeel, soft bitter sweet palate. Finish - some soft cereals, slightly aromatic and floral hops, good finish.
Overall - More interesting than the standard golden ale, very refreshing, easy session ale, top notch condition
