Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are gooseberry with white grape juice and low grapefruit. Caramel with hints of honey and lemon. Fairly spicy with some floral aspects. Flavours are sweet lemon with grape juice and plenty of pepper. Dry and woody with bitter grapefruit. Very good.

Cask, Ale House, Chelmsford, 9th January 2015 and many times before. This is one of my favourite Greck Heck beers. The piney resinous hop notes are strong in this one. Loads of raw onions from the Citra hop and grapefruit. Drinkability is superb. For me this is like the cask equivalent of Kernel Citra. It’s one of my favourite single hop Citra beers in the UK. You can have an awful lot of this and still want more. No problem with the malt either. The finish is a little dry but damn for a Citra single hop beer this is stunning. A great showcase for a magnificent hop. Top work Denzil.

thmsboyd (41) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle BBE: Jan 2015. Crystal clear, golden, verging on pale amber body with negligible head. Highly resinous aroma with a hint of cheese & onion crisps. Medium bitterness. Light body with a thin texture, low carbonation and a medium-long finish. Traditional English pale ale/bitter with a slight twist. Quite disappointing
