Bottle. Exploded out of the bottle upon opening. Not a good start.Hazy yellow and slightly spicy.More like a wheat beer than a blond, and not a very good one at that.

Scopey (15853) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Cask at GBBF 2016. It pours clear very pale gold with a small white head. The aroma is fairly tame.... bread and butter, toasted grain, sweet stone fruits. The taste is crisp, clean, straw, dull spice, white bread, lemon & ginger tea, stone fruits and peppery with a dry-bitter finish. Light + body and soft carbonation. An easy drinking light golden ale.
