Very pale, very hoppy beer with an excellent flavour. Extra pale ale malt and wheat malt combine with aromatic, flavourful hops to make a very refreshing, quaffable pint.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2017 Twickenham Sumer Sun, 4.4% - on tap at the GBBF at Kennington Olympia, 2017. Pale golden yellow. Light, mild citrusy aroma. Light bodied, not too watery. Start is citrusy, with floral hops, some grass. Citrus retreats towards the middle, floral hops dominate. Medium bitter, citrusy finish and aftertaste. Light, refreshing golden ale with a citrus edge.

Half pint from cask at The Ealing Beer Festival. Strong slightly hoppy and particularly dry beer

Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2017
Decent enough for what it is, but these marmalade beers aren’t really to my taste. Have to admit though, they can be quite refreshing when the sun shines and this one at least has a decent body to it. Fine if it’s your thing.

Cask, The Charlotte, Leicester. Orange gold with a thin head. Peaches with jammy lemon and toasted, bready malts. Some citrus rind bitterness. Floral, herbal notes. Dry finish. Decent.

Fairly light level of sweetness with a good accompanying level of bitterness. Medium body, texture quite sticky, soft carbonation. Finish has a lasting bitterness. A good summer ale this.

Cask HP at The William Morris Hammersmith as ’Twickenham Summer Sun’. Pale golden yellow, almost totally clear, still, creamy white head ensures, full lacing. Aroma is gummy sweets, airy malt sugars. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is straw, light lime sweets, dusty dried flowers, musty breathy bitterness, some carpet dryness. Assertive hopping. Quite good. Very sessionable and balanced.
