Poured from a can into a pint glass. Dark honey color. Smells a bit of lemon and finishes somewhat lemony as well. Low fizz. Not really my thing.

Honey gold color & subtle odor. Described as an Amber gold ale, but tastes closers to a pale ale in my opinion. Not promenantly malty like a true Amber ale. Dry finish.

Classic British bitter with tad more carbonation and a strong taste of apple. Quality is apparent and the ale is tasty.

Pours a clear amber with a little haze from the witch ash. Poured into a fifteen ounce glass mug the same temperature as the beer which produced a one and a half finger white head that settles to a lasting rime. Some lacing.

Sweet. Fruity. Apple. Some floral hops.

Taste hits with apple cider. Sweet malt backbone. Crystal malts. No hop bitterness at all. A little carbonation bite. Clean, crisp and refreshing.

Light mouthfeel with an almost effervescent carbonation.

Looking for an ale on a hot summers day? This one fits the bill perfectly. A whimsical ale that strike the mark. No great but certainly very good. Quite sessional.

A standard golden ale, with a not so bitter feel. A plus for the nicely designed bottle.
