August will see us brew our first ever fruit beer – Seville. The beer is created using a complex recipe using malted wheat in addition to Maris Otter barley malt and the new hop, El Dorado. The beer will give you a hint of Spanish bitter oranges.

rlgk (18323) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2016
Draught at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, London. Clear golden beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy yeasty aroma, caramel, citrus, some oranges and tangerines. Fruity hop flavor, citrus, grapes, hay notes, orange zest, slightly floral. Ok beer.

jamestulloch (3496) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Clear golden/amber body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of straw and melon rind. Flavour of Lager, underripe pear and a hint of pithy orange. Thin to medium body with a slick texture. Light fizz. I didn’t get the fruity orange hit I was hoping for. A surprisingly dull beer.

mR_fr0g (9533) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Cask at craft beer Co. A clear dark orange coloured pour with a loose white head. Aroma is mellow sweet grains, orange, hint of toast and marmalade. Flavour is composed of pale Base malts, slightly biscuity, toast, mellow orange rind. Firm grassy citrus hop bitterness palate is semi sweet, decent cask condition. Semi crisp in the finish. Fairly quaffable, maybe a bit bland.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Handpull cask from the Flying Pig, Cambridge. Golden brown, clear, with the tiniest bit of white head. Floral hop and orange peel to the fore in the nose, with some hay and grassy notes. Wonderful taste: bitter with a slight sweet edge, clean and fresh as you like. More floral and grassy hop in the finish with a bitter twist. Light body but it’s exactly what you want for this beer. Lots of juicy orange in the aftertaste tempered by a drying papery note. Excellent, especially for the ABV.

Cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell - London. Pours clear, rich gold with a light, foamy white head. The nose holds semi-ripe orange, leafy hops, toasted grains. Light sweet flavor with grainy bread, moderate bitterness, slight astringency. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Leafy bitterness on the finish, more grains. OK.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2015
On cask at Hop Inn, Newcastle Under Lyme. Pours golden orange with an off white head. A zingy bitter beer but has a good balance to make it sessionable.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Pint at the rake. Clear amber/gold with off white head. aroma is fresh hops, malts and hay. Taste is hoppy at first and you get the Orange afterwards. Not strong at all. Odd fruit beer. Tastes more like a golden ale really. but still, very nice.
