Cask at Red Squirrel. Labelled 3.4%. Surprisingly dark amber, thin white head leaves thick lacing down the glass. Pine, pineapple, juicy fruit nose. Slight citrus zest up front, with juicy pineapple and a touch of pepperiness. Bittersweet pineapple linger. Amazing amounts of flavour for the low ABV.

BeerViking (3982) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Cask at the Magpie, pours a mid brown with a clingy white head and herby hoppy aromas. Crisp, hoppy and biscuity palate, with a lingering grapefruit-bitter finish. Very refreshing and more-ish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a light golden colour with a thick white head. A citrus hop aroma of lemon, pine and pineapple. Similar flavours. Very drinkable. Just a little thin, although it is 3.2%. Moderate carbonation and quite drinkable.

Cask at the Southampton Arms on 4th May 2011. Gold with thin white head and partial lace. Mildly hoppy and fruity; berry fruits and citric hoppiness, little metalic note and biscuit malts. Bittersweet rounded finish lingering with upper-mouth bitterness noticeable. Light mouthfeel.

beermazed (1) - Wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2010 does not count
Cask. O’ Donoghues. Wakefield. UK. Given its strength, it’s never going to blow your socks off, complexity wise. However, as a refreshing session glugger it’ll do very nicely. Decent varietal characteristics, that punch above their weight.

Very creditable session bitter with Cascade quite evident. Like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - Lite.

Draft at the brewpub. Sharp, yeasty nose with some elderflower. Sits well in the glass - pale gold with a firm head. Sharpish finish with a well-hopped, dry, thirst-quenching quality. The mouthfeel on this and its stablemate Sweet Tenacity is fantastic - like smooth velvet with perfect carbonation (not that velvet is carbonated but you know what I mean.)
