Pint on-tap at the the brewery (£3.80):
Bright golden & clear with a thin, white lacing on top with a bubbly texture that manages to leave some light lacing on the sides.

Apple & floral notes plus some citrus & lemon. I detected a few malts but the sweetness dominated with strong apple notes. Relatively light on the nose & background fruits rounded things off.

Quite sweet with some citrus & lemon plus a large apple presence whilst various other fruits fought for attention. The beer seemed slightly sour with some sweet malts but I couldn't help but feelings this one tasted almost like a shandy.

Refreshing with a light body & lively carbonation. There was a touch of bitterness & a slight tang to the beer with some sourness in places.

Quite an average beer but it had some interesting points, mainly that it was quite refreshing & easy to drink but the downside to that was that it was quite light & almost seemed like drinking a shandy. Probably not one I'd get again.

Poured into english pint.
Pours clear golden with nice white head, good retention.
Smell - grainy, somewhat floral, sour apple tones. Apple is known as not very efficient addition to flavour due to its watery content.
Taste - sweet, citrusy, unlikely apple (you might feel pear and some herbs as well), remarkable hops.
Bad try, despite ample balance.
