Had from a hand pull in pint glass from a local Green King chain pub. Poured medium gold colour, reasonable head, aroma fairly uninspiring. Taste was better than expected from the usual bland beers from Green King ( as the previous reviewer mentions!) although on the other hand, some Belhaven beers have been fairly decent. Seemed a sort of cross between a citrusy light IPA and standard bitter, so a mix of sharper hops and malts, and considering its only 4% felt it a reasonable drink though hardly something to shout about. Worth trying, but you might only want the one pint. Would make a decent session ale if nothing else better available.

Brewed by Belhaven for the Six Nations Rugby tournament. Have listed as 'winter' (tournament largely takes place in February, finishing mid March) as it may be brewed again next year, but don't know this for sure !?!

Served from cask dispense into a plastic oversized UK pint glass at the 'Quinns Head' pub inside the Twickenham Stoop Rugby stadium during half time of the Harlequins vs London Irish game (30-23 Quins at FT!).

Worth an honourable mention that the Quinns head is (despite being GK family only) a real ale ONLY bar in a sports stadium with 4 different beers on cask!!!

So taking off my 'not a big fan of GK family' blinkers I reviewed this beer and made my notes from the quiet moments of the 2nd half!

Pours a clear golden colour with a large pure white frothy head.

Malts and a light caramel come over in the nose but in general not a particularly aromatic beer!

Was expecting the 'blandometer' to be rather high after smelling but I was wrong, this beer does have a decent little hoppy punch to it! Citrus hops come across well, along with toffee/caramel in the background and nice zingy aftertaste with a little lemon.

Thinnish body, slightly watery but overall I thought this beer stood up fairly well! (1,229 characters)
