Bottle @ home. This batch is 4.9%. Deep hazy light golden color with a big airy white head. The nose is honeyed brioche, orange peel, sweet grains and mild funky citrus. The taste is light sweet grains, soft orange sherbet. Rainwater, fresh zesty meadow. Minerals. Soft, easy-drinking. Mildly bitter finish. Overall, a pretty refreshing beer! Approachable, well-made.

Leighton (20133) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold with a small, creamy white head. Aroma is all biscuity malts and floral straw. Light to medium sweet with more buscuity malts, lightly tangy lemon, some lightly toasted dough, mild hay and sun-burnt grass. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with decent bitterness, a bit of grassy twang on the tongue, some bready and biscuity malt sweetness, a bit of citrus zest. Yeah, this is a really solid golden. Very well balanced, very clean, with a refreshing hop zip to finish. Has a nicely nuanced character. Excellent beer.

[330ml bottle, London Fields Brewery] Very hazy golden yellow pour. Yeasty, fruity citrus nose. Dry, fruity golden ale-style palate, with more yeast following. Touch of caramel malt in there as well but mostly sweet fruit. Refreshing stuff [03122011]
