COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

jamestulloch (1228) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Great lacing. Aroma of lemon sherbert, peach and grapefruit. Flavour of citrus, herbs, biscuit and a slight metallic tang. Not a million miles away from the citrussy brilliant of Buxton’s (also excellent) Spa. Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation. Sharp and sessionable. A lovely Golden Ale - much better than on cask.

Cask from Cloisters (August 2013). Clear pale golden body with a thin white head that fades. Light lacing marks. Almost no aroma - grass, straw and lime. The flavour is very subtle - soft citrus and straw. No bitterness on the finish. Thin body with an oily texture and very soft carbonation. A lovely low-ABV Golden Ale, but not the most interesting or complex. (Rated: 3.2.)

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
August 24, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Craft Beer Co (Clerkenwell). Mostly clear pale gold with a smallish lasting rocky white head. Lovely aroma - pungently catty, nice and bitter but not overwhelming. Taste - wow, even more one-dimensional - what minimal grainy malt the aroma promised is even more minimal - mostly just pungent catty bitterness. Light body, astringent, light carbonation and a long pungent drying bitter finish - I love it, but it’s a bit aggressive.

Brendelokken (33) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
0.5L bottle, 3.6%. Clear light gold color with a white head. Fruity smell and taste of citrus, grapefruit. Taste is dominated by the classic pale ale bitternes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamesie1857 (1334) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
On cask at Royal Oak, Hurdlow - A clear gold body, thick lasting white head. Loads of hop nose, the citrus kind, lots of grapefruit and tropical notes that give a great idea of what is to come Good creamy palate, with a good sour hit of citrus fruit. Quality, and only 3.6%? A great night ahead!!!!

Cask at the Pelt Trader, Cannon St. Bright yellow pour with a white head. Grassy hop aroma with light malts and vanilla. Fresh herb taste. Some citrus in there. Bitter hop finish. Interesting.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Small white head. Hazy pale yellow body. Light floral peachy grain aroma with gooseberry notes. Dry-sweet wooden floral peach taste with resiny dusty notes. Mild, flat, soft mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry floral dusty wooden aftertaste with resiny dandelion notes. Long, lingering, bitter finish. Vivid and full of flavour, possibly a bit too bitter at the end. (0.284l cask at Pivni, York.)

Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are grassy with hay and some floral, soapy notes. Apricot, lemon and pineapple with peppery pine. Grapefruit with woody aspects. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with bitter, pithy grapefruit and green pine. Juicy fruit with a solid bitterness. Very tasty for it’s strength.
