500ml bottle. Probably filtered. appearance: gold, clear, minimal head. smell: citrus, bready malt. taste: moderate bitterness and sweetness. mouthfeel: medium body, syrupy texture. Ample carbonation. overall: good quality bitter/golden ale. Successful hop combination of pioneer and goldings. Well balanced with good flavour.

From a 500ml bottle.
L: Clear, golden colour. A small number of bubbles rise to a thin smear of head. Very quickly there's no head at all and no lacing.
S: Clean & fresh. Lightly hoppy. Hint of honey.
T: Light honey, floral hops. Semi-sweet.
F: Just about medium bodied. Light coating on the tongue and some dryness on the throat. Finish is bitter and long-lasting. Very refreshing.
O: Looks lifeless. However, the Pioneer hops give a rich, honey flavour to this refreshing, English golden ale.
