leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Golden with an off white head. Aromas are grapefruit and white grape with oak barrel. Mineral notes with yeast. Light floral pine with hints of pineapple. Flavours are sweet pineapple with woody pine and bittersweet grapefruit. Orange and lemon with biscuit, honey and citrus rind. Dry and bitter to finish. Not festive but still good.

Garrold (1725) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear golden colour. Filmy, white head. Lemon, grapefruit zestiness. Unfortunately, some fusty, wet cardboard too. Taste is mango sweet to start, then a bitterness that stays an age. Not quite right.

Bright clear gold beer, thin white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with very fine carbonation. Very light and clean pale malts. Hops are a well balanced smooth citrus, tangy orange with a trace of lemon. Mild peel. Light finish. Easy drinking but could have and maybe should have punched harder with that hop profile.
