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.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 26, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra+ (bottled on 15-04-2014). Pale canary yellow, slightly hazy, with a tiny, non persistent white head. Tropical explosion on the nose: papaya, mango, lots of pineapple, some light melon/white grapes notes, very fruity and hop forward, but in a different way. Some mild earthy presence, almost like wet tea leaves or wood smell. Surprisingly flavourful for such a low ABV beer. Quite high level of bitterness, definitely a solid bready/biscuity malt presence. Fruity, slightly peppery and hoppy as well, but more citrusy than tropical. It feels watery, but it really isn’t. Extremely drinkable tho. Average carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Another great one from Buxton.

A woody (oak), nutty cask ale with plenty of spicy hops to keep you interested. On the dry side with some lemons in the finish. Rated by BrewTom

maneliquor (3356) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Nothing crazy about this but a tasty citric pale that goes down damn easy. Bottle was gone in 30 seconds. Super lemony with plenty of straw and zest. Nice

(draught) pours a slightly hazy pale golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of heavy cactus juice, tamatos, nettles, pepper and a hint of yeast. flavour is mostly talcum powder, ginger and yeast, with a light sweetness and a herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle from redmonds. Pours cloudy lemon with little or no head. Bread, citrus, floral aroma. Sweet dry biscuit flavour with mild bitterness. High carbonation. Light body and slight watery finish. Light refreshing session beer. Another nice one.

Keg at the hanging bat. A little cheesy, dry bitter, light pineapple, a bit like juice, bit too cold.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Cask in the Macc, Macclesfield. Pale almost clear gold with a medium white head. This is a hard style to excite me and this pretty much did. Drinkable. Can throw away a few. Nice session ale.

Golden with white head. Aroma and taste: a lot of hops with citrus flavour. Soft and easy to drink. Good.
