Bottled from Beer Central, Sheffield. Big, big grapefruit & cat pee aroma, with that lovely dry, sprice smell that mosaic gives. Pours a very pale gold, lovely dry flavour, with a biscuit background and lots of mandarin flavour. Clean, fresh palate, great stuff.

Cask at CPK during the pub’s 5th birthday celebration - London. Pours clear gold with a slight, white foam head. The nose holds rindy tangerine, some herbs, pale malts. Light sweet flavor with further rind, general citrus fruits, pine. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish with soft resinous hops, some pine needles, rind and a bit of ripe tangerine. Very nice.
