Exactly what it says on the clip. Following in the modern tradition of blonde strongly hopped beers. A classic blonde beer clean and crisp. The nose is loaded with floral hop aroma while the pale malt flavour is overtaken by a pleasing dry and bitter finish.

Beer5000 (6270) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2016
Cask @ South Western Arms, Southamton. Hazy yellow body with a small off-white head. Light in aroma, some citric fruit, flower and grass. Light and quite refreshing in flavor, mils, soft pale malt, some citric fruit and grassy bitterness. Medium body and light in aftertaste. All in all not bad for a golden ale, at least more flavor and bitterness than expected.

DruncanVeasey (8218) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Green glass bottle from a garden centre- an odd choice of material in which to showcase your hoppy unpasteurised ale. Aroma of rabbits, dandelion sap, biscuits and buttered greenery. Sickly bittersweet honeyed flavour like a German novelty hanf bier with a lemony, stewed, nettle-like citrus and sappy thistle character receding into sunstruck diacetyl and malted milk biscuits. Cant escape the essence of pissy hutch. Hoppy,certainly- if rabbits drank beer theyd drink this.

BlackHaddock (6909) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
500ml bottle into a UK pint sleeve at home on 30th Oct 2015. Slight haze to the blonde body, on top a white, thin head. Really floral in nature, both the nose and taste are dominated by a flowery perfume like feel, caramel notes burst through, giving it a sweet initial hint. The finish is more bitter and dry than the start, overall not bad at all: different and interesting blend throughout.

ForlornHope (475) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head. Slight floral aroma, also a toffee aroma. Toffee also in the flavour, sweet with not much bitterness to balance. Some wheat makes it a smooth drinker. Not bad, but not great.

One of my all time faves out of a barrel, not bottle conditioned which is a shame but still very drinkable. Floral aromas, lovely hopped balance, all day drinker this one!

jmgreenuk (8689) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle from Tesco Winchester. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light, fresh, grassy hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, slightly watery hop bitter, light citrus palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Served cool. Easy drinking and quite refreshing.

Getreidig und hopfig mit ein bisschen an Krutern. Mild, trinkbar, nichts besonderes, aber fr durchaus sffig und trinkbar.

McTapps (6726) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle brought back home from England. The beer pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and straw. Taste of fresh hops, barley, bread, straw, flowers and mild herbs. Grainy hints. Easy drinkable, yet nothing special.
