Fruit, bread and citrus in the aroma. Clear golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a refreshing and nicely bitter ale, but not outstanding in any way.

allmyvinyl (3092) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Booths. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Resinous, almost sweaty hop aromas, light bread malt. Taste has a big bitterness. Finishes a tad thin. Better on cask, as I recall.

Mr_Pink_152 (606) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
500ml bottle from Morrisons. Golden yellow amber with a thin white head. Tastes of citrus. And a hoppy bitterness. But over all not a beer to stand out. Very samey.

kwik-lime (1290) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014

RichTheVillan (2689) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2014
Supersmall head, golden to straw golden body. Scents of fruity hops, pale malts, hints of fruitjuice, as lemon-juice. Fruity malty taste with some lemon drops, some spruce or resin tendency, the hops. Fresh and alright bodied. Malty grainy but fresh aftertaste with decent bitterness. Brilliant together with spicy food, actually often better than such food. (500ml brown bottle, abv3.5%, b@ Kjeller 5 , Tromsø , Norway - so fortunately I didn’t have to go to Leeds)
