On cask locally

Pours with a light lemony yellow body, Thick tight pure white head with great retention. Lots of egg white lacing all down the glass

Smell, fresh and zesty, some nice aroma hops, freshly cut grass, lemon and some slight hints of orange. Some slightly spicy malt character on the nose too

Taste, crisp and zesty hops, very similar in profile to alot of the brewery's other brews. Some crisp malt in the background

A solid and refreshing summer ale, very tasty and great on a hot day in May

November seasonal from Harviestoun

Pint served from cask at local Wetherspoons.

A - Golden body with excellent clarity. 2 Finger white creamy head produces good lacing and persistence.

S- Fresh sweet peaches, a zesty hint of lemon.

T- Juicy sweet peach quality combines well with a tart citrus quality in the semi dry finish. It has a delicate creamy quality.

M- Low carbonation, medium body.

D- Delicious stuff. Lots of fruitiness with a refreshing mouthfeel. 2 pints were not enough!

Tasted by a half-pint at the Moon under Water, a JDW pub at Leicester Sq., Central London. Hand-pulled w/o a sparkler.

A: light yellow-ish colour like a honey drink, 90% clear, coming with creamy white head that slowly dissipates.
S: refreshing and juicy citrus fruits and almost elderflowery fragrance come together, as well as peaches and grapefruit peels. Very fruity, very hoppy, while the second fiddle - very pale malts - does not go unnoticed, showing a grainy aroma more like that of a malty lager.
T: mild pale malts precede a juicy flow of citric/grapefruit-zesty hops; as the fruitiness wanes, the bitter edge takes over with deep-cutting dryness lingering on the palate...
M&D: very refreshing and mildly effervescent on the texture, this is a well-made, feather-light-bodied and quaffable Blonde Bitter.
