Bottle courtesy of gethinbeer. Pale golden-straw colour. White head. An initial whiff of skunk as the cap is popped but it seems to dissipate readily. Leaves behind a fresh, tropical fruit nose along with a little bit of crackery maris otter malt. Fresh and well-balanced. Fairly assertive hopping and a dry malt finish makes this a real thirst quencher. Pretty lovely pint. Grzesiek79 (4296) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 6, 2012
Smaczny blond ale, leciutko mętnawe, chmielowe i goryczkowe ale. Przyjemny zapach kwiatowy oraz świeżo skoszonej trawy. Na finiszy bardzo wytrawny BeerViking (4783) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2012
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Brentford. Gold with a coarse and fluffy white head. Corn flakes, grapefruit, peach-flower and green hops on the nose, dry, hoppy and refreshing, with a faint touch of orange juice on the palate. Could make a great breakfast beer! peanutt70 (1) - - JUL 6, 2012 does not count
500m Bottle. Really refreshing, I prefer this served chilled not Ice cold. very easy to drink on a warm summers evening, shame we don’t get many of them! Pyobon (1400) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2012
(on tap) Hazy straw colour with white head. Citrus / lime aroma. Light body, well carbonated. Very citrusy flavour. Refreshing and tangy.

Bottle. Pours a pale clear gold, with a thick white lasting head. Wheat and grapefruit on the nose. In the mouth, there’s a heavy breadiness but what stands out is the bitter tang here. It’s lemony and tart with some grapefruit, lime and sour sherbert. Malts carry right through until the dry palate finish. Powerful drink! Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2012
Cask from princess Victoria in matlock bath. Enjoyable, bit dry, lightly hopped and all that. BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
May 2009: Clear 500ml bottle with over a month to go before its best before date. Poured into a UK pint sleeve glass.
Very pale amber body, which has a slight haze to it (they use a wheat malt in the brew), a deep white head sat on top.
Wheat and a citrus grapefruit sort of aroma.
Tangy and interesting, the wheat malt gives it a very different taste to the normal run of the mill beers in the UK.
Good blend of contents and very drinkable. I visited the brewery years ago and I have enjoyed all their beers whenever I’ve come across them.

Tasted this at the Hogshead, Paisley in May 2000. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear straw in colour with a thin white head. Zesty lemon peel in the long aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with tart citrus fruit notes of lemon, grapefruit and gooseberry. Dusty hop resins impart a citrusy flavour to the dry aftertaste. Finish is resiny with grapefruit pith present in the palate. A decent session Golden Ale. superflyguy (439) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
looks pretty bad to be honest. thin and dishwatery.
but the flavours are pretty strong and redeem it.
really good malt profile and the hops do sing on top of it.
slightly too thin as well.
