hawthorne00 (2543) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2011
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head that lasts OK. Aroma of oranges, elderflowers, light honey. Taste has a little honey and lots of citrus - orange and lemon - some spices. Pretty dry and pleasantly bitter. The pastuerisation is not much of a distraction with this one, perhaps because the carbonation and straightforward crispness suit it. Refreshing.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle from Dobbies. Buttered dishcloth, shortbread aroma outshone by Oakham Citra. Pale with a scant white foam. Lean pine and butteriness; lurking licked envelope and papery evergreen notes. Scratchy finish; husk, bitter linger. Some soda emptiness, vanilla, grass and English woods. Lacks much of the character of the cask version.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2011
Fresh and crisp beer with quite a lot of carbonation. The hobs are dominating the taste without gettin too flowery or strong. The aftertaste withers quickly away.
