COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Originally intended as a summer beer, we decided to brew this one all year as it went down so well. Starting with low colour Maris Otter and wheat malts in the mash, we then add a small percentage of cara malt to add body and impart a slightly sweet caramel taste. During the boil we use three very different hops to produce the complex flavour and aroma. The result is a premium blonde ale packed with flavour.

On cask at Southampton Arms. Solid for a cask beer, and good for drinking on a sunny day. Nice for a little bite of hops.

Like a crap golden ale but good. Golden ales are tasteless and malty, never been my thing. This tastes very much like a golden ale, but has some complex soft fruit flavors that I can’t describe. It works really well! I chill mine for ten minutes before drinking. I’ll persist with this one.

500ml ,In a Cobra pint glass : Wow that’s big ass tropical fruit in this nose..vibrant and everyone is wearing a Hawiian shirt kinda feel..Lychee , mango, fleshy pineapple ,resiny grassy notes . A bright golden gold colour, large foamy white head is good looking and sexy . bright hops on the palate -loads citrus tropical richnesss.. lightly hoped . i reckon more bitterness in the finish would be a good complement to the tropical notes . this is a good fucken low boost golde -session ipa .what ever the fuck it is.

Puts murky amber with a large slightly off-white head. Light fruity aroma. Flavours of citrus and a little tropical fruit, sherbet, light earth. Light bitter finish. OK, but not particularly distinctive.

Fin (10609) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle picked up from Marks and Spencer, Bicester, consumed at home Monday 31st August 2015 Hazy warm gold with a thick white rim and Islands of bubbles. A flurry of tropical notes, a little pineapple perhaps. Sweet exotic fruitiness in the mouth but a tiny bit thin, pleasant beer but Arbor can and usually do better, that said it is pretty decent. Light hoppiness, malty middle, quite good. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

568ml bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A hazy amber pour with a billowing cream head; gentle tropical fruit aroma; soft and creamy in the mouth with lots of tropical fruit, particularly kiwi fruit; then a gentle bitterness and some biscuit to finish. A very tasty blonde ale.
