COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Very pale and spectacularly thirst-quenching. Three different hops give this beer a delightful citrus nose.

jmgreenuk (4594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
Cask at the Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a big super frothy white head. The aroma is big yeast citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big hop bitter, yeast, zesty citrus, light medicinal palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Refreshing for sure but Im not convinced by the aftertaste.

From cask at the Euston Tap on 9 September 2014. Thought Id rated this before so rather sketchy notes. Fresh gold. Decent hops. Quite dry and refreshing. Very clean. Good. Not particularly lively condition.
