4.7% Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This cloudy yellow-golden coloured beer pours with a massive foamy head. It has earthy, grassy and slight floral citrus flavours with a tropical fruit and peppery hop finish.

JohnCook101 (330) - - JAN 12, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with a good white head. Aroma is zesty orange and pepper. Heaps of grapefruit flavours, slight peppering, some grass. Hoppy grapefruit bitterness predominates, not allowing for much complexity but I like the flavour a lot regardless. Medium bodies with a slightly slick and oily mouthfeel.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2013
A golden bitter, good without being special, its just a little bit of, ’have i had this beer a thousand times?’ Nice a touch fruit. a touch of hops, a little bitter, nice but nothing to chase after.

Cask, Peterborough Fest 13. Golden with an off white foam. Aromas are grassy grapefruit with light green pine and lemon. Nutty with spices. Flavours are bitter pine with grapefruit and herbal notes. Leafy with nutty notes and a dry, pithy finish. Low biscuit malts with spices. Nice.

McNeillR (1240) - SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2013
Pithy grapefruit nose. Murky bottle condition golden haze body with a consistent white bubbly head. Slick vibrant bitterness with a limey and pieney edge initially. Conditioning kicks in for a breadiness and creaminess to disguise sweet resin drips before a very dry bitter pith finish.

Bottle, Marksman Tasting, Edinburgh

Hazy orange - gold beer, little off white head. Semi crisp palate. Mild lactose in the creamy malt. Nice hops in good balance. Nice fresh orange - tangerine, whisper of grapefruit. Finishes softish and semi dry. Just a whisper of Mallinsons soap this time around. Pretty good.

Yeah, not bad, too much standard bitter. YOu don’t even know this beer, to say that I’m not rating it right. You don’t understand this review, so how can you judge the it?
