3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Riding on the back of their first beer I donít think Bone yard could put a step wrong at the moment. Chilled and into a snifter. Needed a lot of rousing on the pour just to lift a film of white atop. The body a hazy, dull amber with very carbonation. Definite, well pronounced, ripe grapefruit comes out on the nose as does sour lime, pineapple and candied lemon. Perfectly executed, all encompassing bitter grapefruit pulp and peel on the palate, so fresh it was like biting right into one. Lingering bitter herbs, sour citrus and lightly peppery notes add a refreshing zing to it. Body is much lighter than expected with moderate to low carbonation. A lot of pine, sawdust and husky grain in there ensuring a dry overall mouthfeel. The star of the show though is the grapefruit which just dominates and quenches so well making it deadly sessionable; the glass finished before the rating. I must say I favoured the Golden ale over this one but saying that this is still an outstanding ale. Lovely stuff!! (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 11/3/2013. Pours a cloudy golden with a very small head. Has a very pleasant floral, fruity aroma, with passionfruit and grapefruit present. Flavour wise, it starts with some muted sweet tropical and stone fruit, but this is, like the name would suggest, all about the grapefruit. with a full on, tangy, grapefruit bitterness which seeks to hang around forever. The body is medium and the carbonation perfect. The is a bold, intense and quite impressive brew, though a little more sweetness would give better balance. That said, this is another goodín from Boneyard.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy orange, sml-med head. Smells hoppy, citrus grapefruit, soft malt hint. Tastes hops, grapefruit citrus acid and zesty bitterness, some malt that disappears quick into a bitter finish. Good for summer, quite bitter.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours an odd golden bronze colour with some hazing. Smallish offwhite head. Somewhat subtle grapefruit aromas to the nose. Flavour wise I get the grapefruit sourness / acidity but I also get a very nuttiness to the malt. In my view doesnt really work with the grapefruit and very off putting. Finish is quite dry though not overly bitter. Medium mouthfeel. Did really lije this to be honest.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Orange pour with a small white head. Nose shows promising grapefruit notes with a touch of zest and citrus undertones. Obvious grapefruit in the taste. Light sourness from it works nicely. Very inoffensive. Sessionable stuff. Nice
