Featuring a North American eagle on the front label, it looks like in the same range as Firecrest, Osprey, and Red Kite, products brewed under license for the Sainsbury's supermarket. A "blonde English beer", the label says, uses Styrian Goldings hops. BB 20 Aug. 2007. Served slightly cooler than normal temp. for cask ales, in a straight imperial-pint glass.

A: dark golden in colour, great clarity, gentle carbonation, coming with a very nice looking 2.5cm-thick off-white frothy head, settling slowly to a thin foam with brilliant retention.
S: abundant entry of juicy orangey and zesty grapefruity as well as floral and mildly sticky, hayish hops; underneath is a mild base reminiscent of honey-drink, candyish malts, plus a savoury-sweet hint of pale malts. Quite aromatic, better than expected.
T: a light-bodied and sweetish fruitiness of hops--grapefruit, sweet lemon, and floral hops approaches upfront, ensued immediately by mildly sweet honeyish malts and a bitter-sweet aftertaste of burned grains (a bit like corns)... the texture falls thin-ish in the end, although the zingy tangy citric flavour comes in to provide a pleasant dryness and moderate bitter kick in the end.
M&D: spritzy on the texture and much lighter in body than 5.5%abv. suggests, but the finishing palate is not quite thin. Overall, a golden bitter with good input of hops on aroma but less weight in flavour. Not a bad addition to the range.

500 ml brown bottle, thanks to oh6gdx and chris_o. ABV is 5.5%. Clear golden to amber colour, decent head. Fairly nice aroma, floral and fruity with notes of honey. The flavour is zesty and fruity, there is a noticeable sweetness, again with notes of honey and also marmalade, acceptable hops in the finish. Not bad.
