Vladivostok (410) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Typically pale, the overriding aroma is one of citrus which carries on through into the flavour profile. Not overpowering though and the beer has a robust enough palate to handle it. Thin bitter finish is typical of its ilk and represents something of a drawback. Overall pretty decent though.

AshtonMcCobb (4899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2016
On cask at Thomsons Bar. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Slight haze. Nose - flowers and grass. Lemon maybe. Taste - lemon dominates. Some grass and pale malt at the back. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Extremely dry. Overall - decent but a bit too bitter for me.

SaintMatty (6505) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2014
Cask (Red House, Newcastle) - Golden with a foamy white head. Grapefruit and lemon in the aroma. The taste is fairly hoppy and bitter with notes of lemon, tea and grapefruit. Not bad, but could do with a bit more balance.
