Aroma: Citrus, Grapefruit, sweet Appearance: Light golden (sun) coloured with medium carbonation and a good head. Taste: Citrus, grapefruit, quite bitter. Palate: Very citrus beer with bitter that goes right through. Overall: A refreshing citrus beer that perhaps is too bitter for my tasting, it does its job well though and has a nice look.

I liked the use of cascade to give it more citrusy note with some soft English notes, but unforunately Mr. Butterpopcorn jumped into my beer even before the beer was opened. A bit sour, light and refreshing, but the buttered popcorn certainly lessened my experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Lemony fruitiness, juicy malt and spicy "english" hops in the nose; pale golden, clear, with a smaller, quite quickly diminishing white head; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; lingering lemony-hoppy finish with a increasing dryness in the aftertaste. Fine session beer..........

Bottle from Tesco Express. I was surprised tt see this on the shelf as the range in my local Tesco is minimal and mainsream. Pale yellow with a rocky white head. Spritzy aroma. It is difficult to believe that this beer comes from the same brewer as hop head. It lacks the punch and characure that I hoped for. A pleasent enough beer with mild citrus hops but certainly nothing special.
