Some citra coming threw, but falls short of the many other great offerings from both here in the UK and the US etc.

This could be my perfect beer! The Citra hops sing, the aroma is always spot on!

Bottle from M&S. Pours straw with a white head. Nice lemon citrus aroma. The taste is bitter with lots of lemon and lime zest. Noce and bitter especially on the finish. Really refreshing and very easy to quaff. I could easily drink a lot of this. Good beer.

500ml bottle from M&S. This is well worth a drink. Not tried it along side Oakham Citra or Citra special, so not sure how similar it is. Colour is golden with lacy white head. Aroma and taste have a big punch of grapefruit but this is well balanced. Well worth a try

Bottle from M&S. I always love drinking Oakham Citra, especially when it is occasionally dressed in a different label and name. Lovely stuff.

I like this beer. It’s an easy to get beer, and the aroma of gooseberries and citrus are nice, the taste is pretty well balanced with lots of citrus going on, with a nice malt background. However, I have a slight bone to pick here - this used to come in a pint bottle - now it comes in a 500ml bottle and I honestly think the recipe is different, the ’new’ version is more like a lager, especially with the clearer appearance and still mittelfruh hop like notes. It’s slightly more bready too compared to the pint bottle version. If anyone disagrees then please let me know!
It’s still a great beer though and worth popping into a railway station M&S for.
