Bottle at home. Very fruity and almost chewy. A tad sweeter than other citra beers I’ve had (good thing for me!) Best Mallinsons beer Ive had so far.

jamestulloch (1320) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: Light grapefruit and mango aroma. Very subtle soapy notes.

Appearance: Hazy, pale golden body with light yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head that slowly fades. Lively carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Big grapefruit and lemon flavours - this is really juicy and refreshing. Biscuity malt in the background. Lingering bitter finish.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Average carbonation.

Overall: A fruity, delicious beer - I could happily drink several of these. For me, Citra is the best hop to use for single-hop beers.
