Cask, Occasional;
A very pale and hoppy ale. Brewed using only the Chinook hop, mellow bitters make way for a distinctive citrus aroma.

BeerCast_Rich (1894) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2012
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Blonde beer with a great white head. Aroma of sweet peach and pineapple. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy - almost syrupy. Extremely fruity on the palate - passion fruit and peach. Very nice indeed [07042012] (similar review to Benj, but done independently!)

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Well, this beer came out of nowhere. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white foam head. Perfect golden ale aroma: crispy straw, light citrus and faint, doughy bread. Medium sweet flavor, lemon zest and rind, fresh straw, light grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Crisp finish with light, tangy citrus, lemon, straw and hay, lasting grassy bitterness. An exceptional golden ale.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, caramel, barley and yeast. Similar flavours with a tasty passion fruit hop character. Mouth-feel is a little oily with mild carbonation. Nicely balanced alcohol and caramel malt backbone. Not bad at all.

DanielBrown (3924) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2010
Hand pulled at the Black Eagle, Birmingham. Golden beer, with thick foamy head. Absolutely delicious stuff. Hoppy, with a wonderful balance of lime, floral notes and grass. Sweetly sour. Perfect balance. Really, really gooood.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2010
Cask handpull (as ’Baby Git’), The Wellington, Sheffield. Thin pale gold, white halo. Peachy hop nose. Juicy spiced tangerine, flowery things- but not in a girlie way. Jasmine reckons Octo. Very good.

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2010
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’10. Gold with white head. Wow, I really enjoyed this one. The Chinook hops really stand out, grapefruit, citrus and very quenching, but also with good balance from a biscuity malt. Excellent.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Cask - Planet Thanet Festival 2010, Margate. Poured a clear golden yellow with a fine, loose white head. Decent dry citrus, fresh and floral aromas. More of the same on the tongue with oranges and a nice sharpness on the finish to balance with the grassy bitterness. Light to medium in body with a bit of carb sting there but sinks really well.

Cask. Comes as "Millstone Baby Git". Clear yellow with a small rough white head. Sweet fruit with a citrusy touch. Medium body, low carbonation, peach accents and other sweet fruit. Fairly discreet bitterness. 180110
