Aroma is very prominent citrus, almost pungent, lemon so rather than grapefruit or lime. taste is very malty and softish, carbonation is at cask ale levels which is really nice. What a really citrussy refreshing clean beer.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
330ml bottle at The New Penguin, 16/01/15. Happy Scan Day beans! Dehydrated gold with a lazy attempt at head. Good maple and honey-dappled peach and stewed greenery aroma. Soapy bitter hop awash with kumquat, peach and grapefruit suggestions sweetened with honeycomb. Soft condition. Good but leaning at little too far over the Atlantic malt-wise for the hops to shine. That said, it’s good. Some almost smoked pale chaff on the swallow.
