Polished clear gold colour, bright white head. Looks good. Citrus aroma, slight tropical fruit notes and a tad musty. Lots of tropical fruit flavours, melon, peach, passion fruit, some honey sweetness. Good condition. Very good session ale.

maeib (8404) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Cask conditioned Handpump Swan & Rushes Leicester. A bright gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. This is a lovely hoppy beer with fresh notes throughout. A bit of orange and grapefruit with a good malt backbone. Fresher and more pleasant in the mouth than the nose, but both elements are good. Nice. Score 3.6
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4 and 3.7. Average unaltered

FatPhil (8632) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2010
Cask (GBBF2010)
7 Lovely sweet fruity hops, citrussy, reminded me of some fresh EKG I got my hands on recently.
4 Bold gold, persistent loose head
7 Well balanced - soft light grains and decent biting citrus hop.
4 Soft palate, nice carbonation. Finish both milky grains and ginger.
13 Strange to give this 3.5, but in simple terms, it has no flaws - it’s a great bitter.
