a_cross (525) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Cask; amber; moderate white head; big tropical fruit aroma, particularly grapefruit; taste is similar, majoring on the grapefruit which is thankfully ripe and full rather than sharp and astringent like so many duff examples of this style; also some peppery white grape; quite a bitter finish; a decent example of a style I’m prone to dislike.

Cask at the Beacon Hotel, Sedgley. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma is mango, pineapple, lemonade and bread. Taste has bread to start and a faint mango finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

500ml. Strong aroma of citrus and spice. ap: dark gold, thick white head. Clear. ta: hoppy. Medium sweetness and bitterness. pa: good body, appropriate carbonation, lengthy hop finish. ov: worthy American pa. Unusual in that there’s a lot of spice to compliment the citrus.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Cask at Barley Mo. It pours clear deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is caramel, toast and candied peel, stewed orange. The taste is soft, caramel, orange, mandarine, apricot, marmalade, with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Smooth and quaffable. Pretty tasty.

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a hazy orange, white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, oranges and mandarin. Flavour is quite sweet, lots of malt with the tropical fruit and citrus fruits. Nice bitterness accompanies the lemon/grassy notes.

allmyvinyl (2163) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Hazy orange yellow pour. Massive white head, high carbonation. Tropical fruit and grapefruit aromas. Taste has a decent bitterness, but the palate is a tad thin. Good though.

jerd16 (129) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Fresh Mango and tropical fruits on the nose. Replicated in taste - but fleeting. Immediately devoured by a rather astringent and lasting bitterness, building long after. Mouth-feel is a little watery. Not particularly well-rounded but bold tasting.

ElectroMod (87) - - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle bought from Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a hazy orange colour, with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is very fruity, with orange/citrus being the stand out. Taste is very immediately dry with notes of lemon, pine. On first sip wasn’t too sure, but second and third have me sold that this is a very excellent, refreshing beer.

[10/2/13] Cask at Euston Tap in London. Slightly hazy golden. Hoppy aroma with overripe tropical fruits. Flavor of fruity hops, some citrus and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Good and easy-drinking.
