Cask at the Cutty Sark. Amber gold, white foam. Decent enough hoppy beer, some citrus and pine, possibly quite sweet in malts and could be a touch more bitter for me. Ok but a touch restrained.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4596) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 19, 2015
At the George Inn. Belleville Thames Surfer is a nice orange amber with a mild citrusy hoppiness. An English take on an APA I guess.

kwik-lime (1692) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Cask at Woody's in Kingston. Enjoyable citrus and a nice balance of sweet malt and hops, but a little thin of body left it less satisfying than it might have been. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (12505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle picked up at the brewery. It pours lightly hazy golden-amber with a medium white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, orange marmalade, brioche, creamy, apricot and pine. The taste is bitter orange, piney, lemon, grapefruit peel, salty edge, earth, light alcohol and varnish with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not as clean as I would have hoped for. Drinkable though.
