Very pale gold colour - a bit anaemic looking. Aromatic - at first I thought there were Cascade or First Gold hops, but I see it uses German lager varieties. The flavours are citric and a little sharp, but the finish settles down to be clean, gentle and lasting. The body is a mite thin, but it makes a decent thirst quencher. I rather liked this. Cask (gravity), Thurrock Beer Festival.

Towey1989 (2566) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear pale golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, some toasted malts, slight mint and subtle herbal hops. Taste is similar of lemon, grass, some mint, slight toasted malts and herbal hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A slightly sulphuric, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Quite hoppy, very herbal. Refreshing but watery and not an appealing finish. Ok.

Rune (12326) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Half, cask ale at Smithfield in Derby. Crystal clear golden body. Dissipating white head. Lacing to the upper part of the glass. Dry fruity aroma. Fresh fruity taste, lemon, peach and grass. Mild bitter tail. Lots of taste in a low alcohol beer. Pretty nice. (22.02.2015).

Svesse (8474) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2013
(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 20 Nov 2013) Pale yellow colour with brief, white head. Malty, fruity nose with biscuits, bread, grass and slightly dusty hops. Fruity, malty taste with note of citrus, peaches, biscuits and a certain citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Fairly thin, but refreshing and quite nice.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
Pre-strike night with Octo, The Flowerpot, Derby, 29/11/11. Wet gold, slim lid. One of them. Sappy, dandelion and almond aroma. Lemony with light sulphur. Pleasant. Finishes with dunked malted milk biscuit. Dab of marg. Weedy. But at 3.6% cant really complain.

niquillis (2604) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2011
On cask at The Congress, Longton. A pale golden ale with a thin white head. Herbs, grass and well balanced. Not what I was expecting from a low ABV golden ale. Very drinkable,

ladnewton (1928) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2011
Cask at CPK, Pimlico, London on 29 January 2011. Crystal clear, pale gold with a white foam part-lacing head. Inviting grassy, herby aroma; bitter and fruity simultaneously in-mouth, featuring grassy hoppiness and berry fruits. Bitterness lingers and satisfies in the finish, on a light mouthfeel. Refreshing, easy-drinking and satisfying.

harrisoni (18230) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
Cask handpull at Cask Pun and Kitchen, Pimlico. Very pale gold with lasting white head. Sweaty sox hoppy aroma. Decent session beer with just a bit too sweaty sox. Good drying finish though.
