Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Mango and pineapple aroma. Quite a herby taste, bit of mint in there. Interesting.

Scopey (7193) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle from City Beverage Company. It pours clear golden yellow, with a medium white head. The nose is grapefruit, peach, plastic, bubblegum even, pine and grass. The taste is juicy tangerine, grapefruit, apricot, pithy, grassy bitterness, varnish and resin, with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavoursome and very drinkable. An impressive start from this new brewery.

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle @ Duke’s. Pours amber with a frothy white head. The nosse is light lemon citrus, hints of grass and white pepper. The taste is tropical fruits, some mango and apricot. Supporting bouncy malt characted, good peppery hop bitterness on the long, slightly dry finish. Some kola nut. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a really pleasing beer. Refreshing.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Cask at Duke’s, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Very nice, hop-forward nose of grapefruit, light pee, general citrus, flowers and grass. Light to medium sweet with grassy bitterness, some rindy and ripened citrus, and aged urine - nice! Medium in body with fine carbonation. Good and resinous to finish with more ripe citrus, mild bready toast, pine and grass. Some really fresh grass in here, almost plastic-like. It’s quite a nice beer.
