Bottled 12/11/12. A golden coloured beer which poured with no head. Citrussy fruity with a soapy element. Peach and tropical fruits in the mouth. A bit of sticky marmalade. Not bad.

Shared with McTapps. Good one with balanced bitterness, some hops and bread in the aroma. Followed by a bit spruce, some vanilla and butter. Finishing off with a fine citrus aftertaste.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. Blonde with a small head.Citrus explodes from the start with some hops floating around. Very distinctive and should be available to a bigger market than just Marks and Spencer.

Douberd (2298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle at home, 500 ml, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5% Clear orange golden colour on the body, with a small white and froathy head, low retention for the most part, some insisting bubbles after most of it has collapsed. Light lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma, fruity, melon, pear, a bit of citrus on the back. Taste follows the aroma, with the addition of some malts, again very fruity, less melon now, nice refreshing touches of citrus. Light bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body with good carbonation, kind of oily palate. Very good beer, aromati enough and very refreshing on this sunny day.

Martin243 (773) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Cool bottle on the train on the way back from Manchester. Vague aroma of citrus and honey. Golden body, white head. Tropical fruit, banana, citrus, but strange metallic medicinal notes where some juicy flavours would pull it together. Watery texture. Unbalanced.
