OwainTurner (286) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2013
Tap at Slug. Cloudy yellow drink. Intense hop aroma, very very thin mouth feel. Bitter and unbalanced. Lovely hop, but lost in thinness.

jjsint (502) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Fine golden ale. Perfect American hop aroma. However the taste brings the low ABV to account, it is a bit thin.

brugmanneke (277) - GERMANY - FEB 24, 2013
(tap) Clear, light golden colour, small white head, good lacing. Moderate hoppy aroma of grapefruits, light malty notes, honey. Taste stars with light bitterness that becomes stronger towards the finis. Light body. Soft, almost flat carbonation. Very "sessionable", light and refreshing ale with subtle aroma.

WeissGary (279) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Decent light beer, tastes a lot like an English IPA, less heavy on the hop more of a watery citrus tang.

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Cask at Holborn Whippet, London on 30th January 2013. Gold with thin white foam. Rich and intense fruitiness and floral hop in aroma and in mouth, with soft citrus. Floral and fruity finish, but not overly sweet. Zingy mouthfeel and medium to light body.

Scopey (5553) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Tap at Holburn Whippet. It pours golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is lemon meringue pie, subdued citrus, faint grass and light fruity notes. The taste is pithy citrus, soap, grass and only a light bitterness with a clean, dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Easy drinking, but not up to the usual standard of arbor. Not much in too it really....

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2013
[cask at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Clear, pale golden yellow beer with a decent white head. Nose is mostly soft lemon, like a meringue pie almost. Quite citrussy on the flavour too – but with more grassy, herbal hops and some bready malt. Lemon and lime citrus on the finish. Decent [18012013]

jvhemert (313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Cask @ Hanging Bat AROMA: grass, barnyard, grapefruit APPEARANCE: pale, clear, minimal head, white foam, TASTE: very bitter, PALATE: light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, bitter, OVERALL: hoppy as to be expected, not too American hoppy, bit too thin although it is only 3.8ABV; nothing for it to make it distinctive.
