75cl bottle. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. A bit hazy. Nose - green notes over citrus. Cucumber becomes evident. Taste - loads of dry green notes. Some citrus and honey in the background Palate - light and fresh and dry all the way through. Overall - won’t score sp well but what a great cooling beer for spicy food.

Strana. Improbabile. Buonissima. Una abbraccio fresco che avvolge il palato con note di cetriolo e una punta acidulo-citrica molto intrigante. Da berne a litri!!

Theydon_Bois (8759) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Keg at BD on da Bush, 27/08/14. Clear golden with a well appointed white cap that retains. Nose carries gherkin notes, light spice, fresh herb, light citric notes, bread crumbs. Taste comprises straw, earthy, hint of cucumber, light spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style - does what it says on the tin, would I bother with it again ... noop!

Draught keg at Craft Beer Co. Cov Garden. Not displaying the same aromas as when I had it on draught last year, and not getting as much hint of mint on the flavour, but still a very enjoyable unusual flavour combination - the cucumber definitely works for me.

On keg at the Culture & Cure, Bath, 25/8/2014. Deep gold with a slight, off-white, head. Some grassy hops, gentle cucumber freshness and slightly bready malts, leading to a dryish finish. Fine.

Keg at hanging bat. The aroma reminded me of a monitor. Peppery cucumber with a watery mint finish. Very light and refreshing.
