12 oz. can, courtesy of BuckeyeBoy (thanks a lot, man), pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is very floral and soapy, with floral hops and gentle biscuity malt. Flavour brings out floral hops and gentle biscuity malt. Pleasant and unobtrusive, but nothing special. Solid stuff.

12oz can pours out golden topped with a white head. Nose is tropical melon hops some dank notes. Taste is more of the melon tropical fruit hops and a nice rich malt.

Cannette. Liquide voilé à la teinte claire surmonté d’une mousse blanche, onctueuse et déstructurée qui colle au verre un certain temps. Explosion de houblons fruités au nez qui vont de l’ananas au melon, en passant par la poire et le fruit de la passion. Liquide de faible densité en bouche dont je jouis pleinement de la légèreté. Bulles très agréables qui conjugués aux houblons, apportent fraîcheur et extrême buvabilité. Les houblons offrent maintenant une résine intéressante qui balance bien les fruits tropicaux sans être toutefois la bombe de fruits qui m’était d’abord montée ai nez. Amertume faible, buvabilité incomparable, une très belle bière, plus aromatique que savoureuse.

Very floral citrusy hops. Mouth feel is a little over carved but it totally works for this light refreshing pale ale. Best I’ve ever had in the style.

ThirstyBird (2583) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
On tap at the Three Penny Tap. Pours a cloudy light honey color with a fluffy cream head. The smell is floral, citrus and tropical fruit. The taste is huge citrus, touch of pine resin, grainy ending crisp and slightly bitter. Light in body and smooth.

Clear golden, small light head. Very piney, light lime. Floral. Lightly bitter. Crisp and dry, very little malt. Light clean body, short finish. "crushable". Excellent.

Goodgrief (1990) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Golden colored pour, small head. Aroma of citrus. Light citrus fruit, moderate citrus hops. A surprising amount of flavor and sweetness for a session. One of the best sessions, which isn’t a style that normally thrills. Got too sweet and lost its refreshiveness as it warmed, which is my fault for letting sit by the grill. Good beer.

Can: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, tropical fruits, light grapefruit, and lemon peel. It pours a slightly hazed golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some minimal thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus with a touch of tropical fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, mild pine, and a touch of lemon peel. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
