3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
568ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Nice and clear and light beer with a small white lace. Aroma is full of citrus hop flavour, grapefruit, lychee, tangy and refreshing. Finish is very well balanced with a light crisp bitterness. Nothing too complex but excellent single hop beer, very good value too at 6 large bottles for a tenner.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Marks & Spencers, Oxford, purchased & consumed Saturday 31st May 2014 had this at Carol & Haydns Summer party. Really pleasant hoppy golden ale, the citra is very apparent along with a nice citrussy bite. Little furryness but great hoppiness. I had this alongside a bottle of the Oakham Citra this is 4.9% which is slightly stronger than the regular at 4.6%, this was the better beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Bottle 568 ml at home, poured into a tulip. ABV 4.9%
Pours a deep golden yellow beer, crystal clear, with a small white head on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma full of citrus, great! Some fresh cut grass too, very appealing and inviting.
Taste is fruity -tropical fruits- , again citrus, a bit of malts, nice bitterness on the aftertaste and strong enough too, abit of grapefruit here.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, a bit oily on the palate.
Overall quite good and it came on a great price too, I should get more next time I am at Marks & Spencer.
