Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is nectar, wood and fruity hops. Flavour is raisins, nectar, wood, herbal notes and also some bready sweetish malts. Mainly wooden and herbal notes in the finish.

harrisoni (18819) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. Gold/copper, thin lasting beige head. OK bitter, bit malty, bit too sweet and frankly not really very well integrated, which surprised me as York is normally a very good brewer.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle from York brewery: Fruity with a hint of caramel, a little bit like a lager, maybe too much carbonation. Overall enjoyable but not exciting in any way.

joe19612 (2964) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle. Poured a good bright gold colour with a thick white head. Very fruity in the nose and orangey fruitiness, in the taste. A good session beer.
