500ml Bottle: slightly out of date when poured into my Abbot Ale tankard @ home on 29 Dec 2012 (BBD of 25 Nov 2012).

Very palegolden yellow and hazy with a thin white head.

Again not really impressed (as I wasn't with the cask pints I've had): citrus notes in the taste and nose but lacks real flavour and anything of interest.

The worst beer I've ever had from Hobson's?

Pours with a light frothy head that quickly fades, colour reminds me of a cloudy larger. The nose offers slight malty citrus notes. On the palate it is medium weight and dry with a nice refreshing citrus bite that finishes with a biscuity hint. I enjoyed this and would probably drink more as a session beer.
