Cask at Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield on 19th January 2013. Pale gold with thin ring and film. Rich grapefruit hop aroma. Intensely grapefruity in-mouth with buttery malts and some grassiness. Satisfying hoppy and fruity finish. Exquisite.

jmgreenuk (3591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2012
Cask at Shakespeares, Sheffield. A very light almost Budweiser coloured pour with bags of lace. Lots of grassy floral notes in the aroma. Not a lot of body in this beer which is no surprise given the colour, but its certainly packed full of hoppy citrus flavours! Very drinkable and refreshing. One for the summer served cool. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Usually a really nice pint. But sometimes can be really excellent. Packed with tropical fruit on the nose and heavy grapefruit bitterness in the taste. It could maybe do with being just a tad stronger and closer to its big brother - Absolution - just to give things a bit more balance. But still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (3185) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
16th June 2012, CAMRA Investors Club AGM: Victoria, Beeston. Hand pulled pint: this pale yellow brew with its thin white head of smooth foam had a citrusy nose and taste; grapefruits came to mind as I supped my way through my second pint of the day. Quiet complicated flavours and tastes with the 4.1% ABV sitting nicely in this well balanced and easy drinking and refreshing beer.
