Bleki (104) - 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 (1121) - 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.

Great peppery-lime aroma, limety in taste. A little bit of lacing. Rather misty. Limety in taste. Great & uncommon APA.

zacgillbanks (2909) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy golden beer with a sweet, sharp citrus-lime fruity flavour, zesty notes and a slight sugary sweet fruity finish.

jmgreenuk (5532) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is yeast and lime. The flavour is medium bitter with a big zesty citrus lime palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Like a lime cordial drink to be honest but very refreshing and the lime is well in the background.

TBone (13638) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Clear yellow color, small steady white head, some lace. Gooseberry bush leaves in the nose. Light-bodied. Sweetish maltyness in the background, then lemon zest and gooseberries (raw) in the flavor. With lime this almost tastes like a ginger beer. Kind of refreshing but not quite my cup of tea.
