Comment: This is a great summer ale – something I’d written in my notes before I realised that the brewery agrees with me, as it’s a seasonal summer ale in it’s draft form! There are citrus notes in the smell, which blend nicely with the hops and comes through as nice floral overtones in the flavour.
