Not sure why everyone is bagging on this beer. If you like bitter hops and easily drinkable blonde beers (above 4.5%) then this is your ticket.

theprof (880) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Cask. Aroma muted citrus and floral hops. Pours golden pale with thin lace head. Tastes fruity to begin but theres bread and biscuit there as well. Light to medium with a grassy tang. Selected largely because Im in the CR tap and no new darker offerings are available. It signals in a good way that it is time to move on.
