spacecube (758) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
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.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from the Broadmead, Bristol branch as part of a 6 UK beers for £10 deal, which proved to be excellent value. Golden in colour, with a decent, off-white head. Big, grapefruit and tangerine fruits, crisp malts, grassy hops and a dryish finish. Enjoyable.

Fin (7251) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
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

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Pours hazy with a quite frothy head. Smels like citrys, honey, and grapefruits. Taste the same, but with some pine in the hops as well. A really nice IPA this.

Borresteijn (4543) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
568ml Bottle from M&S A’dam. Slightly hazy golden colour, frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, floral honey, malts, soft sweet grapefruit. Flavour is malty, slick, honey, floral, citrus, grapefruit, not very bitter but all very smooth and slick. Light-bodied, oily mouthfeel. Really nice, but not much different from the Oakham Citra.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2014
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.
