Lovely clear golden colour. Very clean tasting, almost lageresque. With a nice bitterness.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A clear golden beer with a mid-sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of mild grassy hops, pale malt, grainy malt. Taste of dry grainy malt, bitter grassy hops, straw, okay!

Erzengel (9893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2017
Many thanks to Minutemat for this bottle. Grainy smooth nose. The beer starts fresh dry, not too deep. Grainy parts, weak in body, fresh and smooth. Moderate bitter aftertaste, quite neutral with grainy watery parts.

gegwilson (3835) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Cask in a pub in Wales. Golden with a white head. Not much aroma. Taste of hay, light spice and a touch of metal. Just about OK

2.9
AshtonMcCobb (7091) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle from Tanners, Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - metallic and citric. Taste - more of the same and all finishes in a slightly sickly syrup note. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be fresher. Overall - too sweet unfortunately.
Earlier Rating: 8/4/2014 Total Score: 3.2
On cask at the Boathouse in Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Some haze. Nose - apples predominantly but a touch of caramel in there too. Taste - apples and caramel well merged again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good though I prefer my bitters to be more biscuity.

Cask at the Falcon, Bridgnorth. Pours light gold with a small head. Aroma is sweet honey and straw. Taste is sweet, grainy straw. Light eggy finish.
