Consumed from a bottle with an expiry date of 08/2011. Described as a slightly stronger version of their cask ale with 4.5% ABV.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A nice light blonde colour with a thin white head that dissipates quite quickly; looks similar to a lager but somewhat cloudier. Carbonation is weak with fine bubbles. Initial smell is of hops with a malty undertone (the bottle mentions a late addition of Mount Hood hops).

A gentle malt flavour that gives way to a lingering hoppy bitterness - a good balance between malt and hops. Slides down very nicely!

A very pleasant beer that would go down well on a hot summer's day.

Hand-pulled pint in Willy's brew-pub, Cleethorpes: 30 Mar 2013.

Pale gold with a pure white head that produced some good lacing.

Refreshing feeling to the brew: hops in the aroma, floral mostly. The taste was also leaning towards hops with a bitterness that was noticable but not 'in your face'; the malt content calmed the hops down somewhat.

Easy to drink and pleasing to the eye.

Served cold in pint glass from 500ml bottle purchased from Asda.

A) Very light lager colour, though it is an ale. Quite a thin white head.

S) Served cold, so not getting a lot. Hint of lighter malts and fruity hops. Nothing out of place for sure.

T) Nice. For an ale, very light; hint of new world hops at the forefront, slight liquorice after taste.

M) Light and refreshing for an ale; meets the lager-type ale that the bottle says they are going for. Carbonation is moderate and in keeping with the good balance of the beer.

O) Although going for a slightly unusual lager-type ale style, this is a well balanced beer and served cold on a warm August night, I am a happy customer. Recommended.
