COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A straw-coloured ale, with a high percentage of extra-pale Marris Otter malt giving some initial light, fruity sweetness. This is counter-balanced by a generous dollop of First Gold hops, leaving you with an extremely long, dry finish and a refreshing bitterness.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2017
Cask, in good drinking company with Grumbo, Saxo, Camons, Rasmus40 and Cunningham at Fat Cat in Norwich.. Bright golden body. Naked surface. Citric nose, hints of grain. Honeyed fruity flavours added by a touch of bread. Mid-sweet fruity end. Soft in the mouth. So and so (18.02.2017).

jjsint (2826) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2016
Gravity cask at the brewpub, Norwich. Light to mid-gold, clear with some spotty white head. White grape and gardenia in the aroma with an intensely astringent note. Tastes bitter with a suggestion of orchard fruit and lots and lots of sulphur. I dont usually like sulphurous beers but this is OK. Approaching a Victirian-era pale ale a la White Shield, without the complexity. Still, good enough.

ManVsBeer (9709) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Leeds Beer Festival 2015. Clear golden-yellow coloured. Sticky and sweet with some honey evident, but mainly a well-balanced and easy drinking ale.

sound67 (731) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
[Waterloo Beer Festival, Liverpool, 2014] - Fat Cat Brewery Wild Cat, 5%, strohgelb klar. Aroma kaum wahrnehmbar: Gras, etwas Hopfen, etwas Zitrone. Kaum wssrig, recht voller Krper. Im Antrunk frisch, auch dank etwas Kohlensure, trocken mit Zitrusnoten. Moderate Bitterkeit nimmt zur Mitte deutlich zu, dazu Hopfengeschmack, noch etwas Zitrus. Im Abgang und Nachhall weiter deutlich und anhaltend bitter. Sehr erfrischendes, krftiger eingebautes Lagerbier.

SilkTork (5691) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Fat Cat & Canary, Norwich. Nice pale malt beer. Quite sugary sweet with a dusting of bittering hops. Decent enough, but a little too sweet for my taste, and lacking in ideas.
