ciaranc (784) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 15, 2013
Straw, slightly dark gold, brilliant rocky white head, smallest touch of cloudiness. Citrus, lemon, zest, sweet sherbet and bready malt in the aroma. Flavour follows the nose, sweet malt, buckets of citrus, big biscuit malt backbone. Decent amount of bitterness towards the finish. Finish gets sweeter as it warms with touches of biscuity caramel. Lightish body, soft carbonation, easy drinking this and very nice.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2013
500ml bottle from The Real Ale Warehouse, drunk 03/05/13. Straw-gold. Pours thick, white head, lasting very well. Med carb. Aroma - Nice, rich, complex citrus. Lots of citrus aromas, as well as grass and bit of spicy hop resin. A sort of fizzy, sherbet lemon aroma too, which is pleasantly interesting. Lightly toasty, grainy pale malt. Taste - Mid sweet, lightly toasty, grainy malt, bit caramel. Lovely, juicy citrus flavours; lemon oil. Tangy citrus freshness & spicy hop. Pleasant, light bitter finish; refreshing, with a slight, spicy lemon oil taste on tongue. Nice balance. Body is mid, with a bit of oilyness & lightly fizzy. A very pleasant, drinkable and tasty pale ale; ideal for summer drinking, with plenty of citrus.

Cask at CBC Islington. It pours golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is pale malt, pithy citrus, grapefruit and nectarine. The taste is grapefruit, pithy citrus, cereal, hay, light resin, wood and nice level of bitterness with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice hippy golden.

wimpyjoe (3484) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Cloudy yellow coloured ale with a very small head. It is extremely well hopped with a very fruity aroma in this respect and the same character for its flavour.

jd543 (386) - SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2013
Nice golden looking pint with a one finger white head. Bitter taste, but not enough happening on the palate to make it an exciting beer.

Bottle. Some citrus, not as hoppy as promised. Fairly pleasant light coloured beer, nothing to really distinguish it.
