A pale golden ale with very energetic bubbles that rush to the surface to maintain the little white head right to the end. It doesn't have a strong aroma but there's a definite whiff of hops and sweet malts with a hint of banana.
There is a subtle mix of flavours as the tangy hops mix with the sweet malt. It doesn't have a strong taste as it's only a 3.9% ABV ale but it does have a nice bitter aftertaste. The bitterness has a lovely dry finish with no hint of citrus as the tongue tingling bubbles burst on your tongue. It is quite fizzy and relatively thin and would get a rating of 'canny' (not bad) here in the North East as opposed to 'belter' (top notch) for a five star ale.
