500ml Bottle. The was brewed firstly as a seasonal bottle but its success has meant that its avaiable all year round - usually from your local tesco. Dont let that put you off tho -this is my 1st choice session bottled beer. Theres nothing stand out brilliant about it - it just has a bautifully clean moderate taste. Somehow it just hits all the right buttons with me for a beer to drink all night. Its aroma is hoppy, zesty critusy (grapefruit) with a hint or two of flowers and mild toffee. Appearance is a golden nectar with a medium off white lasting (but not creamy) head, Taste, you get hit with a creamy malt as it enters the mouth and this passes throu a slightly biscuity phase to grapefruit and then to hops and back to malt bfore exitting through a slight bitterness. Sublime... and after typing that review I want one and I want it now!! AtronSeige (1595) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 20, 2014

Flavour: Bready, toasty, medium-hop flavours, floral. Medium-high bitterness, lingering. Light sweetness.
Palate:medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.

Nice biscuity malt with cutting citrusy hop flavours. Really moreish golden ale, one of my go-to session beers. ComradeK (1236) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a clear mid-golden colour, with a medium white head, which lasts fairly well, leaving a decent film of lace. Floral aromas abound on the nose courtesy of the Goldings, along with some sweetish lemon zest and some light biscuity malt. There is a strong citrus hop presence to start, with lemon juice and peel notes, as well as some mild floral hints. The hops develop even further into an IPA-esque grapefruit flavour. There is some mild biscuit and grainy malt in the body, with a dry and refreshing hoppy finish. This is very strongly hopped for a bitter, yet using English aromatic varieties, so it does maintain the character of a bitter. An original, highly refreshing and eminently drinkable ale.
