Strong Citra Hop Aroma - as to be expected. Clear pale golden colour, looks like a lager, moderate carbonation, looks very thin but this isn’t much of a problem. Powerful resinous hop notes, extremely well balanced beer with a real great alcohol flavour - the 4.9% is not hidden well and the beer is all the better for it. A fantastic little brew that is a great thirst quencher, leaves you wanting more.

stravale (2430) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle from Marks and Spencer, Enniskillen [300415]
Light golden, crystal clear, frothy fluffy white head
Aroma of sweet grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, dab of gooseberry, light sweet pale fruits
Taste of grapefruit, soft grapefruit bitter zest, soft pale light sweet malts, quite juicy, not complex thought, always like this hop
Palate - Soft carb, medium light body, bit oily. Finish of bitter citrus zest, finish a little gooey, but clean enough
Overall - Milder than the usual Oakham Citra, but it’s one of the best beers M&S do
