Light golden ale, poured slightly cloudy. Has a slight citra tang, but really made as a thirst quencher.

Cask at the Cock, Hackney. Short review due to session. Clear yellow, still, small white head. Aroma - musty, cheesey hop, and mixed fruit. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - lemon and light mango with a lager-like musty finish. Very easy-going.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask. Light lemon coloured ale with a little haze and a thin white head. Nose is hoppy lemons and lemons and lemons... And that goes right over into the taste. Lemons, a lot of zest and a smidgen of soapyness. Alcoholic lemonade with an alcoholic bonus. A zingy fresh finish. A bit too much like washing up liquid for me.

Cask at Old Coffee House. Pours hazy golden with a short hue of a white head. Quickly disappears to pretty much nothing. Nose shows light lemon and tangy orange. Taste has loads of citric rind - lemon, like, orange. Quite tangy. Has a hint of apple undertones which I don’t enjoy much. As if it’s not in the best condition. It’s workable though and it drinks well for such low ABV. Solid stuff

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Mikkeller Tap Takeover, King William IV, Leyton, Friday 16th August 2013 I have had this before but never got around to rating. Had this on this occasion after the Mikkeller sours and I have to say this was just glorious. Pours very pale gold, the merest hint of haze and just a very small white head. This may come across initially as being just a little thin, but I was soon won over by the citra hop, the wobderful refreshing moreish nature of this beer, you feel like and also want to drink gallons of this stuff. Fruity with a little lemon, dry and clean tasting beer one of my beers of the evening and only £2.70 a pint, marvellous. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

Cask at the Cask & Barrel Southside as part of the ’Haggis Basher’ festivities. Probably got the order wrong by drinking all the ridiculously flavoursome keg beers at Bat and Southern then coming here for this gear. Pours extremely pale and clear. Like a hint of Angostura bitters in a glass of water. Great Citra aroma. IT’s very thin. Like a half cut with a half of water. Nice enough, just felt a little pointless..

Cask (Hanging Bat, Edinburgh) - Golden with a white head. Gooseberries, kiwi and lemon in the aroma. Tea, gooseberries and grapefruit feature in the taste. Plenty of flavour for the strength.
