Appearance: This one is clear and golden with a white head only an inch worth of head.

Aroma: A little bit of yeasty notes in the front faint citrus with traces of biscuits and buttery.

Taste: Light bodied fairly smooth mouthfeel. Faint citrus notes with some grain sweetness is there but it's more underlying than anything which lends a good balance.

Notes: This one is solid, straight forward and a drinkable English pale ale. Cheers.

It pours golden and with a small head. The aroma is reminiscent of a hoppy pilsner. The taste is fairly mind much in the tradition of British ales. Nice balance between the malts and the lemony hops.

From Costco. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Dull in both nose and mouth, with just some lemony citrus and a even a slight sourness. BBF this month. To repeat fresher

From a 500ml bottle.

Perfectly clear, golden colour. No sign of carbonation at all despite the rich and persistent cap. Rings of lacing. Looks right ready for drinking.

Nose is subtle. Faint trace of summer hay. Nothing unpleasant.

Nicely balanced. Malt is not too sweet. Hops are floral. Designed for easy but enjoyable drinking. Very refreshing.

A little buttery, a little sweet, a little bitter, an edge of carbonation. Smooth, light, drinkable, silky body.

Enjoyed as a cask beer at The King’s Head. Golden color with minimal head, slight fruitiness in the palate. A little different from the normal bittrer, but pleasant with some pub grub

A big malt hit of flavour with nice hoppy balance. Not a full mouth-feel as it tends to disappear at the back of the mouth to a citrus-like twang. It urges you to drink more. Refreshing. Best to be consumed after coming down from the mountains!

Pint from cask. Pours a light gold with minimal head (head was probably minimized by server). A very light nose, just a bit of bready malt and honey coming through...was hoping for more. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy. Very grassy and mildly bitter, it is surprising after the lack of hops on the nose. A bit watery, but plenty of those grassy notes and some malt and apple skin. Overall, an interesting brew that could really benefit from being more well rounded.
