BlackHaddock (4144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
10th June 2014: hand-pulled pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates. Very pale gold body with a full white head. Floral hop nose with a mildly citrus note. The taste was hop bitter with a dry finish and aftertaste. Not really my thing but it was refreshing and clean tasting, if lacking in a maltier balance sort of way.

Garrold (1715) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, straw colour. Thick, fluffy, lasting, white head. Good looking beer. Lemon. Lime. Digestive biscuit. Light, herbal, floral honey thing going on. Taste is more of the floral thing. Like eating a rose petal. Bit tinny, really. Palate is clean and lively, though. Finish is dry, and light bitter. Found this a bit odd.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are grapefruit and spritzy lemon with base biscuit. Tinned pineapple juice with yeasty and floral notes. Flavours are lightly bitter grapefruit with lemony yeast. Some pine with jammy fruit. A decent hoppy brew.

7th December 2013
Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Smooth and semi sweet airy malt. Nice lemon - lime hops with a touch of pine. Unfortunately skewed by the old Mallinsons soap. Light finish with more sweet pine. Could have been very good indeed without the soap.

beervis (243) - Taylorís Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle conditioned. Cloudy golden pour with thick white head, tropical fruit hop aroma. Spicy bitter hop flavours with a sharp sweetness. Really rather good.

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival í13. Gold with white head. This was quite a lively beer, still in great condition on the third day of the festival. Good, hoppy grapefruit notes along with lemon peel and bitterness. Lengthy on the palate. Very good.

Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, moderate hoppy, citrus, orange - citrus, light mandarin. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, orange sweet. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120503]

DanielBrown (3924) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours a beautiful yellow, with big foamy head. Smells pretty sharply grapefruity. Juicy mouthfeel, mmmmmm most pleasant. To me, yes this is hoppy (yes), but also it has a sharp edge of almost burnt, almost plastic notes to the big bitter hops. Mostly delicious, but does have that hard x-factor, and Iím not sure itís meant to be like that - in any case it causes me to knock a few marks off. Sorry.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; pours straw yellow with slight haze, piney floral hop aroma has a decent level of hoppiness right amount of bitterness. I like this.

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Thurs)
7 Fruity C-hop aroma. Peachy, pineapple, a touch of mango

4 Nice bitter bite, even a nice throbbing tingle afterwards.
15- Very tasty - great balance. Excellent pale bitter.
