Scopey (7380) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Cask at Euston Tap. It pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. The nose is pithy citrus, grass, juicy fruit, touch of passion fruit and white grape. The taste is lime, grapefruit, kiwi, white grape, assertive bitterness, pepper, grass and resin with a very dry, bitter finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Very tasty indeed.

Leighton (11841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with a firm, white cream head. Interesting aroma, with plenty of pee, lime, some roasted red pepper, other dry citrus. Light sweet flavor with great, lightly aged pissy bitterness, some pale malts, light dry grass and pine needles. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great balance overall. Faint grassy resins to finish, lime, grapefruit, urine, mellow pale malts, lemon. Ah, great stuff. For a relatively low ABV golden ale this is a stunner. The balance is spot on, and the character has some depth. Great stuff.

Euston Tap. Clear gold beer, little white head. The palate is light with nice fine carbonation. Fresh. That chameleon hop - Nelson Sauvin - showing here as quite grapey with lesser notes of bitter melon and a trace of tropical fruits with a sublte kiwi vibe. Dry and slightly spritzy finish.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden colour, thick fluffy white head with some sparse lacing. Light pithy grapefruit, pineapple, citrus zest nose. Dry grapefruit and lemon palate, juicy but with no real sweetness. Nice punchy bitterness on the finish, but overall it’s a bit thin.

eeez (47) - Thatcham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2012
Pours straw yellow with a good white head. Tastes and smells of flowery citrus fruits. The tastes are quite mild with a little bitterness on the finish. Low in alcohol, very drinkable and refreshing, perfect for hot summer days.
