330ml bottle from M&S. Big soft white head, a little lacing. Slightly hazy golden amber body. Nose is orange, lime, biscuity malt. Flavour is burnt orange, honey, caramel, good citrus bitterness on the finish lingers nicely. Light carbonation, good full mouthfeel, soft on the palate, a little bit of chew. Really really good.

Leighton (21092) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Islington - London. Many thanks to Dave for this classic! Pours clear gold with a white froth ceiling. The nose holds light rindy grapefruit, lemon peel. Lightly sweet with fain minerals, more rindy bitterness, dry bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty clean to finish, with just a bit of resin, pithy and rindy citrus. Good one.

Pours clear copper with a thin white head. Is that roses in the aroma? Very malty, a strong bitterness.

berkshirejohn (6452) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A hazy pale amber pour with a thick white head; yeasty aroma; and a crisp light citrus taste with a grainy body; and a smooth creamy finish, with a lingering grapefruit bitterness. A satisfying and substantial pale ale.

3.8
Garrold (5190) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle, one of a load I picked up at M&S for around £1.20 a pop! Very hazy, golden orange. Foamy, messy, sticky, off white head. Looks good. Nose has cracker malts. Dry, and lightly toasty. Orange jelly. Hint of lemon and lime. Light, soft toffee. Taste is light, bright bitter. Some hop oiliness. Fresh mouthfeel. More bitterness on the finish, drying out a little along the way. Nice one.

ipabr (216) - Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Smell of pilsner, floral notes. Not so good. Taste is a little better, mostly malt bit some lager like hops. Whoopee.
