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

Cask. Light straw coloured ale with a thin white fluff. Gorgeous sweet smell of mango, pineapple, grapefruit. In the mouth, more tropical fruit flavour. There's a nice sweet malt helping balance against the bitter too. Finish is a nice mild bitter and then bitters linger on the palate. Top notch.

Can’t quite put my finger on the aroma. Some lemon and other citrus fruits,, a bit musky. Taste is similar with biscuity malt coming through. Quite dry. Ok beer.

kermis (7107) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2012
Sample at the Black Eagle, Birmingham. Golden pour with white head. Unfortunate bad aroma of sick. Nicer flavour with citrus, tropical fruit, wheat and yeast. Not bad but shame about the smell

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - 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 (14303) - 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 (4143) - 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 (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, 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.
