rosenbergh (10409) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at the Gallows Bird XVI Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland. Clear deep golden colour with almost no head. Window cleaner, floral hops and... hmm... Not much more really. Flavour is sweet hoppy with lots of dryness... that's a bit strange. Hoppy. Thin. One dimensional. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leaparsons (9851) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2011
Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Amber gold with an off-white foam. Aromas are caramel and toffee with leafy, green hops and clean, woody yet soft pine. Floral with spiced oranges and fruit tea. Biscuit with mellow grapefruit. Flavours are caramel and biscuit with mellow lemon and pithy grapefruit. Woody and leafy with herbal aspects. Quite green and spicy with grapefruit bitterness and a dry finish. Very good.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Cask, handpump at The Live & Let Live, Cambridge, 03.06.11 Pours mid amber with a white head leaving a light filminess across the top of the beer. Fruity and with a goodly dose of hops on the nose and soft pithy grapefruit and in the mouth with a juicy refreshing grapefruit bite. A great beer to try alongside the Oakham Scarlet Macaw and whilst I preferred the latter I think that this would be easier to drink a session of, very good beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

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.

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2016
Bouteille 50cl, de et partagée avec Pierre et Thomas. BB 31.05.2017. Batch # 1829. Couleur orange, col blanc crémeux léger. Arôme au nez fruité tropical et agrumes assez plaisant. Rétro malté contre-balance le tout apportant des effluve smalts plus en avant, centrées sur le malt pâle. Palais est fruité assez US dans l’approche, léger tropical, avec des notes agrumes rappelant le Cascade et autres houblons C. Caramel et caractère grains restent plus en avant. Très léger, se boit facilement tout en gardant une inspiration anglaise niveau levure, malgré ce côté américain dans l’usage des houblons.
