can from beer hawk a nice beer fruity aroma with nice bitterness coming through on the taste the low alcohol means you could have a session on it zimbo (970) - SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Very pale and refreshingly delicious, this complex and relatively hoppy beer is distinctive yet a real crowd pleaser. Still as great as it ever was. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Can, Ale House, Chelmsford, 24th April 2015.
Nice golden colour. Good pilsner base. Gentle pilth. Oranges, lemons and pine on aroma. Taste is lemons, lemon zest, lime cordial, excellent carbonation, great malt, dry.but juicy. A fine beer. olio (10464) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 18, 2015

Pours clear pale golden color with a medium sized white head. Grassy hops on the nose, orange, grapefruit and some pale malts. Bitter palate, orange and grapefruits on the flavor, some resinous hops, hay and malty notes. Slick, very quaffable, simple.
Aroma: some citrus fruits, some grass, nothing too intense. Appearance: clear, light gold, small, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, formal hops, light citrus again, some grass, flat carbonation, getting quite dry in the finish. Overall: OK Golden Ale, yet nothing too exciting. Pint at Cat and Canary, Canary Wharf. davestanleylfc (4) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015 does not count
Strong traditional American Pale Ale taste, takes me right back to the beers I drank in north America, it is a crisp golden brown colour, almost like a Larger, but the hops come through on the taste, just a shock it was brewed in Yorkshire and not North America a beautiful little beer.

Not a bad beer at all and one that started to grow on me a little as I worked my way down the can. As expected it was quite bitter and hoppy without really matching the heights of some of the more recent pale ales and IPA’s but it’s certainly not bad for a beer that was first brewed over twenty years ago. It packs in a lot of flavour to its 4.3% as well but still proved quite an easy beer to drink without being one that you’d be likely to go out of your way to pick up again.
Bottle from the hive. Dark straw, crystal clear. Small white head. Light fruit, citrus. Lightish body. Medium bitter. Fresh and fine.
