(500 ml bottle) Pours a clear, light amber beer, with vigorous medium carbonation, and a frothy white head. Malty aroma of cereal and maize, with skunky cabbage, caramel, iron, and honey. Sweet and spicy on the palate, a bit earthy, but also thin, fizzy, and watery.
Not a great beer - a bit of a dud. The clear glass bottle certainly hasn’t helped the beer stay fresh.

A very mild & modest golden ale. Really only about texture (dry, faint minerals) rather than any obvious flavour. Only for the ticks...... zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle from Aldi, Washington. Bright golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet toffee and honey flavour with a slight earthy and fruity finish. Not bad. Lclarkson (3) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2017 does not count
Subtle yet sweet to taste its a fine beer for nice salads / fish. A more preferred beer to drink. Skeeza (1) - Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2017 does not count
Has to be the best tasting ale out of a 500ml bottle that ive tasted... need to find this in cask somewhere to get the real taste dj (626) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2017
Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with almost no head. Aroma of bread, yeast and citric honey. Flavour is hoppy with a citrus and honey undertone, some biscuity malt in the finish. Moderate carbonation. Not overly sweet as beers with added honey often are. I’ve always been a fan of this and still enjoy it, especially on a hot day.
