Towey1989 (1583) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear deep golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, lime, mango, melon, peach and subtle pale malts. Taste of lemon sherbet, lime, melon, some mango, slight peach, a little bready malts and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A short, sweetish, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A citrusy, fruity beer. Sherbety and very drinkable. Nice.

ianwelby (1019) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Golden beer. Light floral, fruity aroma. Taste has a sharper hit of grapefruit citrus. Mellows out quite a bit. If the flavour had lingered more I’d have liked it better. Solid though.

Desverger (7350) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016

smells like brown sugar, clear gold with white froth, tastes like mild lemon sherbet very watery and weak

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Cask at The Bishop Langely, Durham, £3.10/pint. Mid-amber pour with a thin, smooth, white head. The nose is muted and has sweet peach and citrus tones. The flavour is crisp and clean with melon, orange and tutti frutti character. On the whole it’s pretty mild with low bitterness but not a huge amount of sweetness either, although it does get a little sugary as the pint goes on. Easy to drink and pleasant but not as inspiring or attention grabbing as I had hoped.

Bullit (4381) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 16, 2015
Cask @ Bon Accord. Dark orange coloured with an off white head. Aroma of biscuit malts, light caramel, citrus and bit of peach. Flavour is citric, light fresh hop bitterness, biscuit malts. Low carbonation. Easy drinkable.

A Crisp hop aroma, and biter hop finish, a very easy drinking summer beer.
