Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of jmrgeenuk. Pours a hazy golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is very fruity, peach, strawberries and grapefruit. Flavor is light sweet and fruity, with a nice combination between bitter and sweet frutyness. Very enjoyable. Short finish, light bitter. Nice.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grassy hop and fruity. The flavour is medium to weak bitter win an ever so slightly sour, grapefruit citrus watery palate. Lacks a little flavour compared to other Arbor beers I’ve had.

Fin (7350) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at Frank (camper) consumed at Bromyard Folk Festival Bar, Herefordshire Friday 13th September 2013 forgot where I got this beer, possibly ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Gold in colour with white head. I found this a rather watery, thin beer that offered very little. Ok there are hops here and it is a little bitter but it all appears rather too subtle and safe. Maybe I was thirsty and rushed it, maybe it was just not that great, whatever, I didn’t really go a bundle on it and moved swiftly onto the next offering. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

johndoughty (3956) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle, Slightly cloudy yellow. Lovely grapefruit hoppiness with lots of flavours floating around considering its comparitively low strength. A lovely beer. This brewery can do wrong for me.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Beer Gonzo. Clouded gold with a slim white collar. Sweet tropical nose with lychee, tomato stem; hints of spliff and blackcurrant. Excellent juicy tropical hop; soft condition; soapy floral and restrained Fruit Salad hop. Stewed tea with dunked biscuit to finish. Good balance of hop and malt. Underrated. But could use a lick more bitterness and fizz for me.

nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2013
bottle from Vino. lovely citrus aroma - nice and crisp, the nugget takes some of the earthiness away from the simcoe - could be a tick sweeter and I wouldn’t mind. a little flat and the taste doesn’t really live up to the promise of the aroma. not at all a bad beer however.

leaparsons (8032) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin foam. Aromas are lemon and lime with biscuit and candy sugar. Yeasty and tart with green apple skin and hints of white grape juice. Woody with low tropical fruit and spices. Flavours are white grape juice with bitter lemon and yeast with low malts. Hints of lime with a dry finish and bitter grapefruit. Very decent.
