Direct from the cask in its home city. Gentle, easy-going lager-coloured beer, but much, much less in the way of carbonation. Refreshing and pleasant enough. I did however try the bottled version which was near as hell tasteless. My mark for the draught beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a bright golden color, with a one finger broad white head to it.
Smells of wheat and some toffee, not much going on as far as the aromas go.
Refreshing with a pleasant crispness, has a high carbonation to it, while remaining very light bodied.
Tastes aqueous, strawy, white bread malts and an uprising toffee sweetness. Noble hops during the mid palate with bright and sweet hay, while hops are fading during the finish.
Very light bodied, not thin yet. Offers enough flavors to remain interesting on the palate.

0.33 l bottle from a Kiosk. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy aroma of citrus, straw and sweet malts. Sweetish, a little fruity-grassy taste of straw, sweet malts and hints of citrus, followed by a short, slightly bitter, quite grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Okay.
