ManVsBeer (8686) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
Keg @ Drink? Hebden Bridge. Golden-amber with a thin creamy head. Mildly hopped, with a slightly stewed tropical fruitiness as the dominant characteristic. Fairly crisp.

SanDiego1 (42) - ITALY - SEP 19, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, schiuma fine e persistente. aroma con scorza di limone, lime, erba appena tagliata. Al palato corpo leggero, scorrevole, leggermente watery con un finale con lime che da il giusto amaro. Molto beverina

Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lime zest, some gingerbread, grass and pale malts. Taste of lime, gingerbread, grain, some grapefruit, slight passion fruit, grass and pale malts. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, grainy, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Like a flat lager and lime. The citrusy flavours overwhelm the decent malty body. Disappointed.

Cask at the bottle shop st Albans. Aroma is subdued, tea leaves, lime, light grains. Clear light orange coloured pour with a fading white head. Flavour is composed of base grains, tea leaves, grains, light citrus. Pretty simple. Palate is medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Simple beer

No fizz on opening and no head at all. Looks a lot like cider. Aroma is zingy of fresh lime and something else. Almost completely flat - I don’t know if this bottle is a dud. The zesty lime flavours are ok but accompanied by a flavour which goes along with the smell I couldn’t place - sort of honeyed dirt. The bitterness and the honeyed dirt without any carbonation taste a bit wrong against the slightly acidic lime flavours, like everything is a bit off-kilter. Assuming it’s not this particular bottle’s fault - worst Arbor ever. Strangely, the last of their beers I tried - Red Henry - was the best Arbor ever. Funny.. The Universe. Oh, I just tasted goat, no, sheep. But the wool of a sheep. Poorly cleaned wool of a sheep.

Origin: Tap. Vessel: Tumbler. Supplier: The Christmas Steps (Bristol). Lime notes hit hard with a backing of cinder and smoke.

Bleki (117) - Gliwice, POLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Pours light orange, hazy, with hard forming head, reduced to stable layer. Lacing. In aroma mostly citrus notes, with lime touch. In taste light sweet. Light body, thin texture, below average carbonation. Short bitter finish. It is very refreshing ale, which I like to have at summer. Bitterness could be much higher, though.

floydian1 (1355) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 6, 2014
568ml bottle in Melbourne (exp 28/2/15). Appears clear amber with a decent frothy white head. Aroma and taste has definite lime zest on top of fresh citrus hops and a biscuit malt base. The lime is subtle and not off-putting. Finishes with a satisfying zesty hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A fine Summer quaffer.

Howser (1) - - OCT 4, 2014 does not count
Great peppery-lime aroma, limety in taste. A little bit of lacing. Rather misty. Limety in taste. Great & uncommon APA.
