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.

Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’13. 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.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Cask conditioned gravity dispense Northants Beer Festival 2011. A golden beer with white bubbles. A lovely hoppy beer where the citras are allowed to show off their true exoticism. Sharp in the nose and beautifully hoppy in the mouth. A tasty beer which might be a challenge to some but I really liked it. Score 3.8
Subsequent rating scored 3.6. Average becomes 3.7
