ManVsBeer (7827) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. A golden-yellow ale with a smooth head. Has an abidance of hops but not overstated with a smooth tasting texture. Its tropical fruits are fairly light and there’s a bitterness here too.

500ml bottle. Pours hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is zesty and slightly earthy. Flavours of cereal, sharp citrus, tropical fruit, a touch of honey and a hint of pine all finished off with a robust grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied, carbonation is light to moderate and fine. Mouthfeel is slick if not oily. Very nice.

I like single hops, bunny hops and hip-hop. I like hardcore dub punk hop as well. So will you one day soon. This was a charming little number, bitter and fruity. The 3.7 tells the story.

Garrold (3775) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Cask at Cross Scythes, Sheffield. Hazy yellow. White lasting head. Fresh citrusy aroma. A hint of grapefruit. Malt outweighed the hops for me in the taste. Lots of body to it. Possibly a bit tired? Not for me, this one.

500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Golden yellow colour, reasonable head. Biscuit, resin, tropical fruit & hop aroma. Biscuit hop & citrus fruit flavour. Grapefruit aftertaste. Another great big tasting lowish alcohol beer from Mallinson’s.

Euston Tap. Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate starts smooth but has a carbonated sting. Minerals. Fresh orange zest and yellow grapefruit flesh. Under this citric sharpness is a trace of sweet tangerine and tropical fruits. Finishes crisp and dry with orange peel and grapefruit bitter linger. Only a trace of the Mallinsons soap here. One of the better ones.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 1) Cask gravity, Nottingham BF 2012, 12/10/12. Firm-bodied, fine-headed pale gold. Nose: chick pea, lemon, shrub. Good grapefruit and lemon zest hop; grass, perfume, stinging bitterness. Lean and biting. More goodness from Mallinsons. 2) Bottle, Beer Gonzo. Orange-bronze with a slender fine- lacing foam. Marmalade, wine gum and dense grassy aroma with green herb and orange liqueur hints. Big earthy monkey nut base overlaid with chunky crystallised orange peel bittersweetness; cordial hints, grass and pine. Bitter but also mousse-like and honeyed. Soapy lavender-like and shrubby finish. Not quite as rounded and satisfying as the Amarillo but still bloody good. 848415.
