Cask at the Mikkeler Bar, Copenhagen. Poured a cloudy light reddish yellow with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is citrus leading to a somewhat rich bitter flavour with lots of bitterness lingering on the palate. This is like no other Citra Pale Ale I've tasted before. I was a little shocked at the first sip but it grew on me the more I drank. It's well worth tasting if only for the shock factor.

Cask at old coffee house. Clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Taste is the same. A little watery. Not sure I get the mangoes but sort of pineapple/ light lime and lemon. Nice stuff but flavours werenít quite strong enough.

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

The_Osprey (3841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
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.

dogbomb (1085) - ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
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.

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2013
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 donít enjoy much. As if itís not in the best condition. Itís workable though and it drinks well for such low ABV. Solid stuff
