A full flavoured beer with a subtle refreshing citrus flavour.
Created by Adnams’ Master Brewer, this pale yet full flavoured beer is made using a blend of East Anglian malted barley and wheat. Boadicea and First Gold hops from England and Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand combine to create the subtle citrus notes and refreshing flavour.

Leighton (22298) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the M&S Stratford. Pours crystal clear gold with a slight, white foam head. Doughy, lightly buttery and biscuit pale malts in the nose, hints of hay. Medium sweet flavor, some white bread, biscuits, dough, faint hay, some tangerine merengue. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly sticky sweet to finish, some further tangerine, doughy biscuits. Easy drinking.

harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle from Marks & Spencer St Pancras drunk on the train to Ashford. Blond gold beer lasting white head. Grassy grapefruit aroma. It’s fine. A decent blond beer. Some character. Some hop on the finish. Good

FatPhil (17071) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 19, 2012
500ml bottle (Marks & Spencer, Tallinn)
Amazing sharp citrussy and rose-hip aroma, so floral, and so,erm rosey. Bright gold, small brief head. Taste is an inharmonious mix of hoppy pale ale, and wheaty components. Retronasals are quite marmaladey. Body a little watery, crisp carbonation. Finish is a little weetabixy, and with a huge astringent bitter bite. Some strange vapours later, not alcohol, not solventy, just strange. A bit lifeless and pasteurised. Final sip had some burnt treacle in its taste. But I’d given up caring.

imdownthepub (15325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottled 500ml from Marks & Spencer in Banbury. Gold with white head. There is a thin corny note to this, hints of caramelisation, a slight herby hint perhaps. Thin throughout but ok.

mR_fr0g (13475) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle at home from Euston station. Golden orange in colour with a slight haze and scummy thin white head. Aroma is herbal hop, yeast esters with a floral honeysuckle note. Flavour is mid sweet honey malt, grainy with floral hop finish. Mid carbonation. Overall a good beer, but a bit dull.

rosenbergh (11793) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
500 ml bottle. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Belgian style yeastiness, sweet maltiness and fruity hops in the aroma. Metallic notes, Belgian yeast and sweet maltiness in the flavour. Very low carbonation. Was this really an American Pale Ale?

allmyvinyl (10995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear gold, thin, short-lived head. Aromas of citrus, peach, honey. Taste is light bitter, bit of caramel. Medium body, creamy texture, bitter finish. Not bad.
