mcberko (5918) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
On tap at Buxton Tap House, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose is on the fruitier side, with floral notes and almost a Belgian-esque yeast component. Flavour is lighter, with floral notes, light fruitiness, and a dry, astringent hoppy finish. Well-balanced, but I prefer the Moor Top. Very nice.

plaugher (157) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
12oz bottle into an English pint. Pours a clear golden with a sparse white peripheral head. Big time floral hops and citrus on the nose, with a more muted variety flavour-wise. Light bodied, easy drinking. Light bitter finish. Probably will be a good balcony session ale.

orso_versilia (3) - Viareggio, ITALY - JUN 21, 2014 does not count
equilibrata, discretamente luppolata, leggermente citrica, una birra onesta che lascia soddisfatti ma non stupisce, non rimane impressa nella memoria

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours a fairly cloudy golden leaning slightly toward amber with fairly minimal head that leaves a thin ring of lace. Nice fresh citrus notes on the nose with some candied elements. Lacking any real complexity. Lots of citrus fruit on the palate as well with a nice refreshing bitterness. There’s something a little off in the finish that really detracts from an otherwise enjoyable brew.
