Cask at Hanging Bat. Pours hazy Orange with a thin white head. Nose has lots of cucumber and a touch of mint. Taste is very similar. Very refreshing and would be nice with a curry. A bit watery and on its own it lacks a bit of oomph, but leaves the mouth very clean.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is cucumber, mint, spices and faint malt. Flavour is spicy, cucumber, malt. Weird, not bad but I got fed up with it quickly.

Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has spices, very rich and green notes, veggies, sweet cucumber in pickle. Sharp flavour with dry bitterness and peppery finish. Bit thin. Nice and quaffable.

I had this one in Manchester in a sample of about 0,1 ltr. Didn’t take notes but I decided to rate since it is so heavily underrated by most. The beer is a bit watery but in a good way, just like a cucumber. It is super refreshing. The combination of mint and cucumber is an excellent choice. Please make more. :-)

Poured a hazy blond with a small white head. Aroma of the cucumber. Flavour is hugely cucumber and mint, very refreshing and quite unique.

hazy golden color. Creamy white head. Very clean peppery nose with moderate amount of cucumber. The mouth however explodes with cucumber, with pepper in the background. The cucumber really makes this refreshing. Dry, but more hops are needed for the style and the finish falls apart. Still über über refreshing beer that tastes great and extra points for that

Bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting, courtesy of sic1314. Pours a hazy blonde beer with a white head on top. Aroma is mint and cucumber.. amazing. Flavor has also some minty characters alongside the cucumber notes. Never had anything like this before. Very refreshing drink. Cool.

Bottle at Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is big cucumber. The flavour is neutral veggie with a watery cucumber light mint palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. A perfect palate cleanser.

worldbeertaste (1546) - AUSTRIA - DEC 20, 2013
Hazy pale malt with a frothy, lacy thick, lasting, head. Smells of fresh cucumber. It really does. Fresh mint and veg. It smells good. Tastes of hops at the start with a cucumber finish. Amazing for what it’s trying to do. But unless you like kosher pickles.
