tombyars (1425) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted this in Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) on 27th January 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Dry dusty citrus note to the hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt delivers a fruity citrus flavour of grapefruit full in the mouth but very little else. Dusty hop resins impart a dry bitter note in the slightly astringent aftertaste. Finish is all about the hops with a citrus peel zest coming through in the palate. A poor session Golden Ale for me.

DanielBrown (3982) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Gravity at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. Grassy, olive oil hops. Becomes more grassy down the back of the throat. Not bad. A bit too quincey for me. Foxo’s mate Paul is here now, so that’s a positive. The live music is quite bad though.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a pale golden yellow with a thin but quite dense white head. There’s a lovely grassy floral lemon aroma which hints that this beer may pack more of a punch than you might at first think. Smooth and sharp on the palate, the taste is floral grapefruit with a cream soda edge and a little tropical fruit - mainly pineapple. The lip-smackingly sweet zesty aftertaste leaves a light dry lingering lemon flavour. Wonderfully refreshing, moreish and delightful.

On cask at the Alexander Graham Bell for the Wetherspoons beer festival. Pours a straw colour with a decent white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, passion fruit and pineapple. Similar flavours. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Tasty with a dry finish.
