Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2013, day 3 - London. Pours dark gold with a creamy, off-white head. Rich citrusy aroma, some pale malt undertones. Medium sweet flavor with strong minerals, simple citrus, light citrus character. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with some pale bread, juicy orange, a little general jammy citrus. Alright.

jamestulloch (3486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Cask at The Waiting Room. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of biscuit, lemon and earth. Flavour of caramel, grass and hay. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Not as bright and hoppy as I hoped it would be - chuck a few more hops in!

ShaneMains (5) - Sitges, SPAIN - MAR 12, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 Cask @ The Black Lion (Brighton) Great staff! First look provides a golden Amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is earthy at first with a fruity citrus hop just lingering ever so slightly behind. Very easy drinking bear that is bitter, but not overly so and also has a good balance of citrus hop flavor notes of Mango & Tangerine that please the palet, not overwhelm it.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 6/1/2014. Deep gold in colour, with a white head. Pleasant tangerine and grassy hop aroma. Flavour had biscuity malts, more citrus fruits and ended up nice and dry. Good beer.

ManVsBeer (8765) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Huddersfield Beer Festival. Clear amber with a very hoppy, full tropical fruit aroma and taste with its strength very evident. Mango is most evident in its nose.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Saint James, Brighton Kemptown. Amber with white head. Sweetish malty beer, there is a slight bitterness. I really didn’t get the Citra hops in this, hidden away for me.
