Cask; Seasonal - Summer. Also available bottled.

Created to celebrate the unique events happening in the UK this summer, our latest addition, Notting Hill Summer, is a refreshing zesty ale that packs a big punch of flavour for its strength. Initially full of hops and bitterness, a subtle sweetness is also present, all leading to a long lingering complex finish.

Leighton (22769) - London, Greater London, - FEB 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Dried straw in the nose, some biscuits. Light sweet flavor with mild bitter straw, some citric zip, light dry orange. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly dry on the finish, more dry, citric bite, faint floral notes, some stone. It’s a decent golden ale. Pretty tasty. (3.3)<br / >
Bottle at home in London - from London Beer. This beer definitely might need a new entry. It pours clearish yellow-golw with a frothy, white head. Gorgeous aroma, just bursting with new world hops, zesty lemon and tangerine, some melon and mango. Light sweet flavor with mild pale bread and biscuits, lots more citrus, some straw. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Well balanced on the finish with low bitterness, more lemon, tangerine, slight grapefruit, hay. Lovely stuff. Super drinkable. (3.8)

Handpump at the Harp, London. Hazy golden bright pour, super white foam. Nose: tart lemony, unpleasant grapefruit skin. Meh. Mouth: more grapefruit, unpleasant tartness. Nope! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split at ChrisO tasting, London. It pours a clean light golden color with small white head. Aroma is clean and crisp hops with light grass, peaches, straw, tangerine, citrus peel. Taste has more light stone fruits, ripe red berries, grass, pine cones and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very nice

The_Osprey (9641) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle share. Pale orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is rubbery, peach and tangerine. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with tangerines up front and then a floral, woody, salty dry finish. Pretty decent. Lots of flavour for the ABV.

September 10, 2014 - at ... never mind - it was VERY fresh, and on draught. Clear gold, nice white head. Aroma is floral, pungent, citrusy (apparently it’s amarillo I’m getting) - just enough cattiness to get me excited for the taste. Taste follows - balanced and refreshing and not heavy - nice crisp finish and yes I had (at least one) more. Again!

Martinus (4725) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, light floral notes citrus. Light bitter flavour, hops, bit earthy. Light body, hops, lingering earth.

Aniela (4215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
From my backlogg: RBESG 2014 in London, grand tasting. Hazy pale golden beer with an small offwhite head. Fruity hoppy grassy floral aroma. Sourish floral grassy floral flavour.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle; home and copious amounts of times at the brewery. Gorgeous light sunkist colour which is also orange and hazy. Unfined completely. No head retention despite a solid pour. Aroma is grapefruit; mangos; Scilian lemons; orange peel; and some priming sugar. Taste is oranges; orange tart; Sicilian lemons; mangos; grapefruit; lyches; crisp and dry biscuity malt. A refreshing session beer which is ideal for yes, you’re guessed it; summer. I don’t think it’s too thin for the style; I like session IPA’s and this is what I want more of.

pivnizub (10904) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle(RBESG 2014):very pale yellowish coloured with a stable white foamy layer; quite solid grapefruity aroma; dry bitter flavour, very light bodied; short tart and grapefruity finish. A bit too dry and a bit too thin…

ladnewton (2069) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
LIVE RATING: Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 15th October 2014. Hazy amber with off white shallow lacing foam. Fresh citrus aroma with yeastiness. Lush grapefruit hoppiness in-mouth with slight soapy note and nutty background malt. Finish becomes grassy and delicately bitter. Light body and zingy mouthfeel. A good low-strength pint.
