På kran på irsk pub i Fulham road i London. Fin mørk gyllen farge. fruktig humlebitterhet i både lukt og smak. Herlig myk munnfølelse. Litt lite karbonisering.

On tap at the Fountain Inn in Cowes. Mild and smooth with some malt, hops and lemons. Creamy mouthfeel with a touch if spice and citrus fruits. Drinkable, calming piwo with a mild aftertaste. Fine one.

On cask at The Fountain Inn in Cowes. Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of straw and mild hops. Taste of hops, citrus fruits, straw, graass, grains and basement aromas. Boring and dusty finish. Average beer.

2.6
AWS9 (736) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Cask. Standard hazy gold pour with minimal head. Slight grassy/hop nose. Touch of bitterness. Fairly smooth and drinkable. Not all that much to report really. Simply blonde ale that doesn’t stand out, nor necessarily disappoint.

2.8
jjsint (3428) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Cask @ George II, Luton. Mid to dark gold, clear, with foamy head and a fair bit of lacing. Simple yet confusing aroma of citrus, caramel and toffee. Bittersweet taste with that telltale diacetyl buttery overtone. Bitter, slightly acrid finish. This doesn’t do anything for me; maybe it’s more palatable in slightly better condition but I fear it’s just not a great ale.

2.9
MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Grapefruit aroma. Just a thin head. Lighter than the IPA. Fruity tasting leaving a lingering taste in the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belle couleur presque rousse. Note de fruits tropicaux, sucre candi mais bien équilibrés. Un must !
