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.

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.

BeerViking (3471) - 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.

kwik-lime (1551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co in Clerkenwell. Aroma wasn’t the strongest but a great taste, the cascade hops come through really strongly leaving an earthy, herbaceous beer with a pleasant tang in the finish. Enjoyable.

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.

stravale (2567) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 29, 2012
Caak @ Red Squirrel 270312
Amber orange, frothy white head, lots of static bubbles
Aroma of light lemon bit of cake mix
Taste of lemon, bit of lemon meringue pie, slight lime...wow the flavour for 3.4%..lemon bitterness takes over after drinking a bit clouding initial taste
Palate - soft to medium carb, thin body. Finish very dry, much more bitterness comes thorough then cleans off palate
Overall - so much flavour for 3.4% but eventually masked by the bitter finish

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Cask at Old Red Cow, Barbican, 29/6/2012. 3.4%. Golden, light head. Light, spicy, aroma and a sort of unroasted coffee / vegetabley aroma. Unusual coffee bean taste dominant, with some tangy grapefruit hop tastes. Strange, but pleasant, with light bitter finish.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry and a little crisp. Decent condition. Good light orange hops, little tangerine, light floralness - almost perfumey. Light crisp finish. Mild hop spice linger. Decent stuff.
