Cask gravity at Kent BF 2006. Gold colour with thick white head. Strong citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit and tangerine. Creamy in mouth, bit nutty. Hop is also quite earthy on end. Longish earthy tangerine finish. My type of beer if not perfectly executed.

imdownthepub (10641) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2005
Cask conditioned at The Ale Wagon, Leicester (RB Crawl). Pale gold beer with bubbly head. The starting beer to a long day, and a good start it was too. Sharp lemon hop aroma which followed into a bitter hoppy beer. Citric and sharp throughout with a good bite. Easy and light on the pallate, great start to the day.

Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear yellow golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, nicely fruity, nicely hoppy, lightly tropical fruits and a nice subtle yet present bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Very nice.

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2004
Golden with a small fluffy head, Aromas are mild citrus with floral hop and some butter. Flavours are floral hops, mellow lemon, and dry, bitter grapefruit on the finish. Has a touch of the JHB about it. Not bad.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2004
A fresh and clean gold coloured ale. Dry, with a modicum of citric hop presence but at the softer end of the spectrum. Some tropical fruit nuances in the flavour. Pleasant and refreshing, but not hugely assertive. Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 Cask, Leicester Fest ’08 (Saturday afternoon session). Full-on grapefruity hop refreshment with lingering bready malt afters. Punishing IBUs dabbed with vanilla. Headless and pale. Leafy citrus aroma. Zesty and pleasant, if a bit tired. (636314-3.2) UPDATE Cask handpull, The Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Pale and creamy with a white slick and specks of lace. Dribble-making lychee, wring of sweaty hop, passion fruit and apricot aroma. Big juicy lychee with spoiling TCP beyond, some peach. Really not keen on the disinfectant-like note, but love the hops.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
Cask@St Albans BF. Pretty summery. Fresh tropical fruit (kiwi fruit?), slightly floral, decent bitterness, more-ish, but not overly complex.
