A fabulous light beer, full of flavour and extremely moorish. This really is a wonderful ale that is a must try.It is a bit to easy to drink rather too much.

Superb tangy pale ale. Ideal for hot summer beer gardens. This is a must have, if your local pub has this, don't even consider anything else!!!

This is a fantastically full and flavoursome, refreshing pint. Unfortunately it's quite trickey to stop drinking this after just one pint, you always feel like one more. So get a barrell of this in and have a BBQ.

Summer Lightning happened so fast .. met a beer, crazy for me ! Met a beer, cool as can be !

This is a quality ale - every time I encounter it I am impressed with it's liveleness and strength ... and that's it's selling point ! Tastes great and does some damage ... SUPERB !

This is the ultimate summer beer. Pale with a tang, once you've had one, you just keep going back for more!

This is the best. A superb pint. It appears to be a permanent fixture in the local Wetherspoons. Golden hoppy & refreshing.

Mmmmm, What a quality beer. I could, and in fact did drink alot of this. Very smooth and light yet full of flavour and deceptively strong.
A great session of in fact anytime beer. Keep your eye out for it.

One of those beers that never dissapoints. This golden ale has everything. Good balance of malt & hops in the mouth with a bitter, dry finish. Full of flavour and refreshing but beware the strength of this easily drinkable gem.

Cask conditioned at the Grid, Southfields, London. Unbelievably high rating at the Great British Beer Festival. I still found the use of extremely bitter hops (not balanced by sufficient malts) totally out of hand. Probably the first pint of my life that I was unable to finish (there has been a few later on, mostly poor high ABV lagers.). I found it undrinkable. If you guys like it, fine. I just didn't. Sorry. (I will be willing to sample it again, though - if you're paying!)
