LazyPyro (595) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, minimal white head. Aroma is mild, some slightly sweet tropical fruit and hops, malt. Taste follows suit with some fruity hoppiness and slightly sweet malt, mild citrus and bitter grapefruit. Soft carbonation, oily texture. Good balance but a somewhat average beer.

allysa (8) - - MAY 20, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 The aroma isn’t very strong - a bit hoppy. Light golden-amber in color. Somewhat fruity but I don’t feel like it has much flavour otherwise. Slightly bitter and the bitterness lingers. Overall, fine but not very interesting.

Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cherry Hinton Road. Bright yellow. Almost clear. Distinct white head. Floral smell, hint of lemon and grapefruit. Bittersweet gentle taste, followed up with a much more bitter finish. Citrus and a hint of botanical in the finish. Not quite as good as cask but still pretty damn good.

Brew_Cat (119) - Athens, GREECE - APR 20, 2016
Bottle @Pulp, Athens. Pours light amber with small diminishing white head. Medium body, dry bitter finish. Malty aromas, fruity notes with a grainy backbone and hoppy kicks for balance. Very refreshing, and well combined with our sausage plate.

toscanoigor (109) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - FEB 24, 2016
Dourada, translúcida, com aroma bem discreto, levemente ácido, com notas florais e de grama. O sabor é cítrico, com um amargor pungente, que se dissolve rápido. Alta drinkabilidade, corpo médio, uma delícia

Poured from bottle. Citrus fruity aroma. Pours a clear golden pale with white head, has a some good lacing. Light to medium bitter taste. Light to medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, with a bitter dry finish. A pretty good hoppy brew.
