Cask at gbbf day 5. Cleat light orange golden coloured pour with a loose white head. Aroma is nice fruity citrus, tangy peach. Flavour is composed of harsh grains, peach and mango hop with grassy bitterness. Rough around the edges. Palate is semi sweet, lowish carbonation. OK APA.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Grapefruit, gooseberries, pineapple and mango all feature in the inviting aroma. Hoppy and fairly bitter taste with tangy grapefruit and tropical pineapple, mango and passion fruit all detected. Really nice.

Cask @ GBBF ’12. The nose is light raspberry ripple, spun sugar and sugar cookies. The taste is light sugar cookie, some sweet white grapes and lemon. Zippy and refreshing. Light body. Simple, but quite pleasing. Nice.

Bottle from niquillis - thank you! The beer has got a deep golden colour with an steady low head and medium body. Aroma of pineapples, citrus fruits and hops. Taste of fresh hops, citrus fruits, exotic fruits, gooseberries, spruce and mild herbs. Wonderful quaffable with a refreshing twist. Enjoyed it a lot.

Now I really know that I like Citra hops. That beer is hops and citrus all around. Beside that it is quaffy, highly drinkable, fresh and with a full body. Mild ending, decent carbo - top.

500ml bottle from Ales By Mail

BBE 08/2013 - Pours golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lemon, grapefruit and grass. Taste is hoppy and mildly caramely with notes of tangy fruits, citrus, grass and grapefruit. Finish is bitter and slightly malty with some tangy notes. Okay, quite basic but tasty pale ale.

Cask at the Twickenham Beer Festival 2012. Straw with white head; the aroma is full of American hops; the body is quite thin, but the hops come through rather well, providing citrus and pine resin flavours; and a drying finish. More an APA than a Golden Ale in my opinion.

Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 29 Jun 2013. Very pale in looks, weak urine yellow in fact: good white bubbley head that tried to stay the distance, but failed. As you’d expect from a brew using Citra hops, this leaned heavily towards a citrus based flavour and aroma. I know this beer is very popular with a lot of Real Ale drinkers and craft beer fans alike, but I’m fed up with so may ’samey’ tasting brews using citrus flavours to refresh us Brits: I want deep amber brews with a malt and hop balance when I go into a pub, not this ’new wave’ of light lager look alikes with lemon duck toilet cleaner as a base! I’ve tried to score objectively.

Cask@The Baring Hall Hotel, Grove Park - pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma and taste is of fruity and hoppy citrus goodness, sweet malts, lemon, pine, nice floral qualities, easy drinking, great condition. Lovely.
