Draught at Bull & Castle, Dublin. Clear golden, creamy head. Rich grapefruity hop aroma. Mid dry with clean rounded mouthfeel. Well hopped and light bodied with balanced bitterness. An elegant, really enjoyable thirst quencher.

imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This is a sharp, dry, heavily hopped beer. There is a good crisp biscuity body, light with a baked bread note. This carries a spicy, peppery hop flavour, quite intense and bitter. Really very good.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Cask at Hilden Fest 2012 - 25/08/12. Slightly hazed copper orange in colour - not a pale ale in my book! Sweet malt nose leaning towards caramel. Tastes a little of ripe tangy fruit with a bitter sweet finish, medium body with a commensurate level of carbonation.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 5, 2014
A draft pour at the rooftop garden at the REG in Waterford, Ireland. The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. In the pint glass it was a gold amber with an off-white head and really nice lacing. Nose is floral, citrus and grassy hops. Medium body and smooth mouothfeel. The flavor show lots of hops and there is some light fruit. Finish is fruit and bitterness. Really easy to drink and refreshing as all get out.
