NOTE: The recipe ofr this beer changted significantly in 2011.

A light, refreshing, hoppy pale ale. A showcase for the incredibly aromatic North American hop – Citra. It has a lovely citrus aroma, with juicy fruit flavours in the mouth. Medium bitterness.

Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/10/12. Clear pale golden with a decent frothy white head. Thin nose with pale malts, muted hops and light fruit tones apple being evident. Tastes of light hops, orchard fruit, a little caramel and hints of pine. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a smooth finish.

On tap at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Golden with a white head. Soft and easy to drink with citrus, hay, bread, wheat and some "soap". The bitterness was light.

@ Man in the moon 14-9-20: helt ok med en lite syrlig touch. Helt ok balans mellan humle och malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

gegwilson (1167) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from the Lion’s Den in Yarm. Pours golden with a white head that diminishes quite quickly to a light layer of froth. Starts juicy with citrus before a fairly bitter finish with some quite soapy notes. After a while the soapiness seems to fade and it improves with more citrus coming through.

Osprey87 (1708) - WALES - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle from Eebria. Golden orange, slightly sparkling, hazy, small white head. Aroma is light lemon, maybe a touch of vinegar. Body is medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is light and watery up front, some thin citrus, late caramel sweetness with a musty bitterness in the finish.

tania_nexust (151) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Draught cask at Craft Beer Co Cov Garden. Really great condition cask pour. Bright golden colour. Gentle citrus hop aromas, nice clean crisp finish - everything a good sessionable cask ale should be (IMHO!)

Rangi (583) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 28, 2014
Big bit of spicy citrus from the aroma up front, flavour is full of grapefruit and more citrus. Clean sharp bitter flavours. A really nice ale this. Reminds me a lot of the stone and wood just for the flavour punch.
