Cask; Regular. Originally a September 2006 special. Also available bottle conditioned.
A pleasant refreshing golden ale brewed with a blend of pale malts with a hint of crystal malt and roasted barley. The hops are selected from of the best of British fuggles and goldings supplemented with hops from the other side of the Atlantic. The sweet aroma is of incense and elderberry with hints of caramel spicyness for an unforgettable pint.

Bottled. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of fruit and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, lots of fruit, and some straw, leading to a dry finish.

Cask at GBBF. Clear light amber beer. Dry palate. Light crisp malt and a vague hint of hop. Dull, dull, dull!

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear golden with a tiny rough white head. Sweet fruity nose. Medium body, sweet fruits with an almost perfumy touch from the hops. Discreetly bitter finish. Fresh alright. 190110

harrisoni (19348) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009. Gold, little head. An ok golden ale, some decent fruit salad, reasonable full ness in mouth. Some hop on end.

TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2009
[email protected] 2009. Golden color, small white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. Light fruity (apple) hops and bitterish finish. Flat mouthfeel, a bit harsh aftertaste.

imdownthepub (15334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Amber with no head. Not in the best of condition, but quite an underwhelming beer for the gravity, thin on the palate and a little lifeless. Some biscuity malt and a touch of hop, quite dull.
