2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Last Post. Pours clear golden with tight shaving foam head. Nose obscured by oiliness and soap.Tast mildy citrus and over very quickly. Overall a very mediocre offering but he biggest question must be how any brewer can produce such an insipid offering from two of the most aromatic and citrus inducing hops ( Citra & Nelson Sauvin) is beyond me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2015 Cask at the John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint.
Good looking golden beer, laces well with a thick white head and a slight haze like a hot summer day. There’s a spicy, grassy aroma and the flavour is citrus all the way with a touch of lemon shortbread in a dry finish. Gorgeous on what will be one of the last hot Sunday afternoons of the summer.

2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite fruity aroma but with a massively hoppy hit. Very light yellowish colour. Leaves a really tacky aftertaste. Definitely on the sell list

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Mulberry Leaves, Leek (Marstons) A clear pale amber colour with a creamy thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, lemon, sponge cake, grapefruit and some grassy hops. Taste is the same of pale malts, lemon, sponge cake, grapefruit and grassy hops. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A dry but smooth grassy hop finish. A creamy golden ale with decent malt and hops flavours. Ordinary but well done.

Pint on tap. Fresh citric nose, melon/grapefruit. Golden clear beer with solid white head. Excellent grapefruit flavour with a touch of caramel in the finish. Refreshing, you could drink a few of these on a hot day, no problem.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fra cask på Minster Inn, York 30 Okt 14. Lys gyldenbrun. OK tett skum som varer. Bra aprikosaroma. Smaken har preg av grapefrukt. Blir syrlig bitter etter hvert. Ikke enkelt å finne bryggeriet. "Kamuflert" som Wolverhampton.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015
Sep 2014 - Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Yellowy orange, clear, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is toned down citrus. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, smooth. Taste is light biscuity malt, soft breathy bitterness, semisweet citrus, long finish. Lovely, well balanced and very drinkable. An almost perfect example of the style. (3.8)
Mar 2015 - Gravity cask at Bree Louise, again. Soft citrus, thin malt, light bitterness. This batch has a lighter, more citrussy flavour. Good, but the last one was a lot better. (3.5)
