UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 A very pale blond bitter with a thin and light head. There are clear hoppy aroma but there is not a strong bitterness, there are various subtle flavours to this beer but none seem to enhance the classic bitter style, instead they mellow the flavour and make this a pleasant hoppy session ale.

mjs (6831) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2017
(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 2017) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, starch and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were earth, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A rather poor golden ale. Finish was nice.

Butelka 500ml. Zloty kolor. Piana biala srednia ladnie utrzymuje sie na szkle. Nuty orzechowe i chlebowe w aromacie. W smaku trawa ciastka ziolowe akcenty orzechy i chleb. Ciekawy lekko cytrusowy posmak ktory dodaje swiezosci i porzadny goryczkowy finisz.

shoulderbroken (4027) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2016
Tap at the Stansted airport Wetherspoons. Fruity, hoppy, surprising. Light and refreshing. First beer in a few days. After a little it gets a little yeasty and has more real ale character but a pleasant surprise.

On tap at The Wheel and Compass, Weston By Welland. Light golden pour with small white head. Subtle grassy and hoppy notes with toasted grains. Dry hoppy citrus finish, Lacking complexity yet very pleasent and drinkable.
