Brown 500ml bottle, best before Nov 09, drank Jun 09.

Poured into a pint glass, it looked a golden pale colour. A firm white head sat on top, this head slowly became a collar and wispy covering.

Hoppy aroma, not overpowering, but strong enough to hide anything else.

Pale and Crystal malts used in the brew, but the hops win the battle of the flavours like they did in the nose. There are some citrus notes within the taste as well.

Good mouthfeel considering it is only 3.6% ABV beer, plenty of taste and bite to it. A nicely put together beer.

had on tap in north wales, in our hotel on holiday.
Had a decent golden straw color & small white head to it which did not stick around too long. Taste was nice with some citrus notes in it, very easy to drink & you could have a few nice & easy.
All in all a very nice beer but nothing out of this world!.
Would drink it again.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a dimpled pint mug.

Pours a light, clear, golden colour, with a small white head.

Smells weak but slightly sweet and soapy.

Tastes overridingly soapy. Vague biscuity and bready malts, with general bittering hops.

Overall a distinctly average beer. Disappointing from this brewery.
