Bottle shared in Watford - thanks Fergus. Pours clear gold with s creamy, white head. The nose has some wheat, pale grains, some hay. Light-medium sweet flavour with sugary pale grains, wheat bread, low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish, some toasted honey, crunchy grains, wheaty biscuits. So so.
