Cask, handpump at The Star, Huddersfield 17.03.12 in company of dad & Barry Gold in colour with a white head, very clear. Nose is fresh and zingy but with a touch of cats piss coming from somewhere. Fruity & tasty with plenty of citrus zipping through, drying at end, lovely beer, in fact a really lovely beer. If I had a criticism it would be that this is just the tiniest bit thin which may be a bit harsh otherwise excellent stuff. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7

Bottle from Jacks, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Dec 2011 & shared with my dad. Consumed 30.12.11 Hazy light lemony colour with a slim white head. Wonderful aroma, really sumptious soft cooking lemons. Soft in the mouth, with a rub of lemon across the roof of the mouth and around the gums, touch soapy, this is wonderful. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

Delivered by MyBreweryTap. Lovely beer, and great taste for a 3.9% (I normally prefer a slightly more upfront beer & higher ABV). You could drink lots of this; definite subtle grapefruit, a beautiful soft soapiness (in a good way! Sounds awful but thatís what I felt & it was an excellent aspect to the beer). I loved the way it kept its head throughout.

Not sure if this is a technically a different beer, but the previous Mallinsons Citra was part of the discontinued Now Thatís What I Call Hops range, and .2% higher ABV. Pale yellow, thin white head fades to a film. Nose is zesty floral, hint of passion fruit. Juicy lemony palate, hint of apricot sweetness, long sharp hop finish. Nice.
