Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - DEC 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, pine and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.

jjsint (1658) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Cask at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Dark gold or light copper. A good white head leaving behind some impressive lacing. Juicy orange, grapefruit and peach dominate the hoppy aroma, but there’s a grainy malt backbone in it is well. Bittersweet at first, with sweet juicy lashes at your tastebuds, ending with a bitter finish. Pleasant smooth palate with a fuller body than most low ABV beers.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015
September 17, 2014 - at Craft Clerkenwell; handpull. Clear brassy refractive gold with a decent frothy/creamy off-white head (4-). A grassy golden aroma with some hints of citrus and honey sweetness - heathery, light alcohol. Taste follows, less sweet grain, more grassy/lemongrass bitterness, but pretty simple. Chewy, solid body, midddling finish - rock-solid, nothing amazing, but eminently drinkable.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
18th July 2015: cask, hand-pulled pint at the Sheffield Tap. Nice light coloured brew with a good, full white head. Citrus flavours rule the nose and taste and although I am fed up with this style of beer I quite enjoyed this one.

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle BBE: 16-Sep-15. Well-chilled. Pours a hazy amber with towering, pillowy off-white head. Well-maintained and good lacing. A solid, bready malt backbone to the nose,with a hint of yeast and medium hop aromas of citrus and pine. A little skunked. Light biscuity sweetness and a crisp, light-medium bitterness to follow. Light-bodied with a smooth texture, medium carbonation and a gentle bitter finish. Overall a very enjoyable light summer ale. Held back a little by the hint of off-notes on the nose.

Moebbels (556) - FINLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Pours a hazy orange body with a frothy white head that leaves lacing on the glass. The nose is quite refreshing and tropical with grapefruit, pomegranate and pine notes. Taste has a hoppy bitter bite and a dry finish. Lively carbonation and light but not watery palate. Very nice and refreshing, excellent summer ale.

overtheline (100) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2015
500ml bottle, pours a clear orangey gold with a nice Whitehead which reduces to cap. Fresh tropical fruit and grapefruit nose. Fruity taste washes away all too quickly leading a moderately bitter finish. Thin and watery medium carbonation. Very pleasant. Very gluggable.

flying_pig (1251) - SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2015
500ml bottle in Moskito, Glasgow (£4.10):
A real disappointment from Cromarty for me, I can’t remember the beer being this bad the first time I tried it but that might be down to the fact I don’t remember much of anything about the first time I tried it. A boring beer that was lucky to be given a 2nd tasting & definitely won’t warrant a 3rd.
