downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Cask-conditioned at the Penny, Bristol April 2015. Golden with a slick of a white head. Sweet tangerine aroma, with some leafy hops. Flavour had more fruits, biscuity malts and a touch of jarring sulphur in the finish. Ok.

imdownthepub (13390) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Gold with white head. This had quite a medicinal note at the start, linctus cough medicine, not sure whr=ere that came from. There was a dry bittering but the Citra hops struggled to come through. Disappointing given the previous ratings.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2013
Gravity, Coventry Beer Festival, 27/04/13. Lean pale gold loosely crowned with bubbles. Nose bursting with the pleasures of the hop; cat pee, lime zest, blackcurrant and passion fruit. Deeply tropical Citra flavour full of passion fruit and guava. Slight husky tail. Outstanding, pungent- in The Kernel ballpark.

Cask conditioned handpump Old Fountain London 19/03/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. Great mango citra hopping throughout. Nicely balanced malts give body and just the right sticky sweetness. Citrus flavours are good. Tasty. Nice hops.
