garthicus (2594) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 20, 2013
Appearance: Amber orange, tiny white head. Aroma: Wet paper, vanilla, grass, plastic - like a new plastic pencil case. So odd. Flavour: wet paper, strawberry, grass, hay, malt, weird plastic again with a medium bitter finish.

dogbomb (863) - ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Yellow gold with a thick white bubbly head. Nose is straw with some strong lemon and citrus hops. Taste is lemon, lime, light grapefruit and a little sweet malt. A nice bitter bite to finish. Solid.

Osprey87 (1182) - London via, WALES - MAY 5, 2013
Slightly chilled bottle. Good head, dark orange, decent carbonation. Smells of sweet caramel malts. Tastes of … not much. Very watery flavour but mid bodied and with a sweet caramel finish. An easy and very drinkable beer. Would be a good first beer for someone to ease them in. Nothing offensive about this at all.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Mildly sweet and hoppy, light gold in appearance. Refreshing to taste, nice light, easy drinking.

BitchPls (411) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
Clear pale lager like colour with a foamy white head. Some sweet fruitiness in the aroma. A hint of bitterness and IPA like fruitiness. Subtle flavors, mostly floral notes. Quite thin body. Still very nice beer although quite subtle and simplistic. Not for those who seek bitter hops.

kwik-lime (1177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Maltier, heavier and fruitier than the cask version, without the pleasant light hoppiness. I prefer the cask version, but this is still certainly a decent beer.

pushkinwow (1844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle from my sister who brought it back from Scotland...was sweet of her. Clear pale gold with a generous white head. Pale and light malt with a slight hop profile and not too much going on although a bit of stale caramel. Moderate to high carbonation, mild body, slightly sweet, becomes a bit dry but leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.

Graham77 (205) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2013
500ml bottle. A well balanced and complex beer with a biscuity and hoppy aroma and taste. Lightly sweet and very refreshing. This IPA has more flavour than the 4.4% ABV suggests. An excellent session beer.
