minutemat (4312) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Cask @ The Fox, Dalston. Very mild hoppy citrus flavours, perhaps not as fresh as it should be. A slight touch of tropical fruit, some gooseberries in the faint distance, couldn’t detect any white wine influence. Overall a little disappointing but open to trying again fresh.

Cask at Westow House, Crystal Palace. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Slightly pissy, juicy, trop fruit aroma. Light body, mild carbonation. A little musty, funky trop fruits, grass, pine. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Euston Tap. Cask. Lightly hazy gold beer with a nice creamy white head. Palate is softish and dry. Good fine carbonation. In nice condition this beer. Skunky hops with quite a strong bitterness. Light grape. Touch of white wine and very light tropical fruits before a smooth and light finish. Unusual.

Cunningham (6983) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2013

Appearance: Clear amberish color with an off white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Malty, fruity and hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet, and an ok bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Fresh malty, balanced tropical fruity and lovely citric hoppy.
Overall impression: What a pleasant surprise. I just had to try this kiwi stuff. Not that much kiwi flavor. Although a lot of fresh tropical fruits.
Personal stats: On tap at The Philharmonic in Liverpool, England.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Hastily guzzled pint, Euston Tap, 24/08/13. Curry leaf, grapefruit, biscuit and cheese nose. Bitter stewed tonic and grapefruit vibes; curry leaf, herb... didn’t get the barrel or the gooseberry. Low foam over clear gold. Finishes with a pils-like rasp. Left me wanting more.
