Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough 17/03/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head. Great Citra citrussy hoppiness in the nose. Lovely flavours in the mouth. Good bitterness. A bit soapy and a bit of lavender too for some reason. On the chewy side surprisingly but tasty. Nice stuff.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 5, 2013
Keg @ Bow Bar, Edinburgh [280913]
Golden blonde, crystal clear, thin white head
Aroma - Quite strong citrus grapefruit hops, fresh grapefruit pith, touch of gooseberry, soft sweet malts
Taste as aroma, fresh citrus grapefruit, nice zingy bitter zest, good soft sweet light pale malt background, excellent flavour
Palate - Light body bit quite oily, good bittersweet balance, nice bitter citrus zest counterbalanced by the soft sweet malt. Finish of soft bitter zest.
Overall - Excellent light golden ale, good showcase for the Citra hop in a session beer

Holmen2 (409) - NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
Golden in colour, persistent head. Strong aroma of lime and lemonade, as expected. Refreshing taste. OK ale if you’re more fond of lemonade and lime juice than beer.
