High notes of fresh citrus zingy fruity summer bliss. We discussed if this was a session beer or not. Consensus was it tasted beautiful, great balance, but a bit too quick to get you schloozled. Thumbs up for a delicious fruity pint evoking summer meadows and festivals.

This beer was superb. Lovely citrusy nose and taste with dry bitter aftertaste. Tasty from start to finish. The second pint was as enjoyable as the first. THIS is one I would definately lookout for in the future.

Good nose of hoppy citrus which is carried through for its flavour. Worthy ale.

Bottle at EBBC12. Golden with grapes and gooseberry on the nose, then a very much more bitter citrus note on the palate. The fruit notes are really quite striking, the beer is quite light otherwise.

On cask at Rummer Tavern in Cardiff. It poured a pale golden liquid with a small white head. Lots of american hops in this one. Fruity and hoppy with grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruit. I went back three times just to drink this beer and loved it more and more for each tasting. The best real ale I’ve ever had. Could drink it all day long on a hot summers day and not get bored.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A bright golden beer with a bubbly white head and lacing. Blighted by vinegar but there are signs of the well chosen hops. Sharp grapefruit juice and zestiness. The vinegar though spoils and is way too obvious.

Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, pale yellow with a fine foam head. Zesty lemon in the nose with straw and delicate dough. Medium sweet flavor with doughy malts, some dirty straw and lemon rind. Light in body with fine carbonation. Crisp, lightly sweet finish with faint grassy bitters, more straw and hay. A decent golden ale overall.
