reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, - FEB 10, 2013
660ml bottle pours a slightly hazy straw color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some light grains and hints of pineapple. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with some light malty and fruity sweetness with a hint of tart from the pineapple. Very nicely balanced brew with a light body and moderate carbonation. A fully flavored beer which satisfies the palate while being easy to drink. Very well done.

19/XI/14 - on tap @ Stormbird (London) - BB: n/a (2014-1350)

Clear pale orange beer, nice creamy white head, very stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: citrussy, fruity, somewhat cheesy, smelly feet, hay, grains. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, cheesy hops, grains, bit metallic, malty touch. Aftertaste: citrus, grassy bitterness, bit cheesy, malts. Despite the cheesy stuff, still very nice refreshing and bitter beer.

ThirstyBird (1707) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2014
Pours a very pale light yellow with a bright white head. The smell is distant citrus, mild malt and elusive nose. The taste is citrus, lactic, tart fruitiness ending dry. Pretty pleasant but not remarkable.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
1/3 pint, keg at Mother Kelly’s Bottle & Tap Room, Bethnal Green. Close to clear pale golden body. Tiny white head, spotty lacing. Citrus smell, rather sweet. Lemony hops to the taste profile that also includes a touch of mango and mild malty sweetness.Semi dry, bittersweet ending. Like it. Paired nicely with the meat plate (London 26.09.2014).

jjsint (926) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Mill Rd), consumed at home. Yellow, bordering on straw. A bit hazy with a thin white head. Scent of lemon rind, barley sugar, a note of floral hop. Taste is a lemonadey sweet/sour, almost like a high-class radler but with a strong malt base. Finishes slightly more bitter. Floral hop aftertaste. A cut or two above your average golden beer, with complexity and innovation in the recipe.
