gegwilson (1156) - 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.

tania_nexust (143) - 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 (579) - 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.
