MartinGood18 Jun 2005 Straw coloured beer is hoppy all the way through with a nice bitter edge. I'd like to see this more often
AndrewGood17 Jun 2005 Very pale yellow with a strong alcohol taste and bitter with a tart edge. Osset is always a winner
IanExcellent17 Jun 2005 Pale gold beer. Hoppy citric blond beer reminiscent of so many of Ossett's superb range. Bit sherberty with long bitter citric acidic finish. Some pine nuts. Lovely
