3.6/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

On draught at The West Arms in Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog.

Pours clear, pale yellow, with a thin soapy head that leaves layers of lacing.

Nose is very light, verging on non-existent.

Subtle flavours of grass and lemon. A mildly bitter finish.

Soft, velvet, smooth, creamy body. No carbonation.

An easy drinking summer ale. Highly sessionable.

Watery mouth feel which leads to a dry back on the mouth when swallowing due to bitterness. Big hop flavour with cat pee type aromatic kick and a fair degree of bitterness. Dry with little sweetness. Very citrus especially grapefruit.

500ml, bottle-conditioned. Pours light gold with minimal head. No aroma on nose. Taste: very light floral hop, perhaps elderflower. Good balance of dryness and sweetness. Low bitterness. Light body. overall: pleasant gently flavoured, lightly-hopped beer.

Served on cask in a pub in Cardiff. A very reasonably priced pint served with a very reasonably priced meal at lunchtime.

Pours a pale yellow colour with an unimpressively small head.

Smells slightly better, slightly citrusy and hoppy.

Tastes good, citrus hops in a very toned down way that leaves you wanting more, rather than grimacing, as some hopped up beers can. Balanced well with mild and slight malts but overall a very refreshing and lip-smacking taste.

Overall a fantastic quaffable ale, great as a session and just lovely really.

The first pint in a mini dinner-time session at the excellent ‘White Hart’ in Shifnal, Shropshire. Hand pulled into a UK pint sleeve glass.

Very pale indeed, thin yellow looking, with a good pure white head on top. Some lacing given off as the well carbonated beer sank down my glass.

Mildly fruity in aroma, some hop citrusy notes too.

The flavour is more hop than malt, getting more hoppy as the taste buds got used to the beer. Wheat is also used in the brew, but I couldn’t detect any.

It looks thin, but it has a good refreshing feel to it and the 4% ABV sits well.

It’s very popular around these parts and is a good session beer for lunch-time throwing.
