Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ ?Royal Oak Twerton or the Raven, Bath, forgot which. Hazy pale gold with thick lacy band. Sweet juicy malts and esters of lychee and ripe plum. Juicy beer. Sweet entry and middle threatens to get cloying until it finishes with a flowery bump. Quite nice, a bit yeasty but overall balanced.

kwik-lime (1692) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Oh yeah, this is great. Light, summery beer with good hop character and just the right amount of great citrusey notes to provide a good refreshing taste without being overbearing. Superb.

Great fruity aroma, good pale yellow and great head, great flavour for such low gravity, grapefruit overtones, an extremely refreshing and flavourful pint.

Cask at Coronet W’Spoons in Nth London. Golden pour with a decent head. Aroma of hops and citrus fruit. Lovely refreshing, hoppy, citrus flavours. A well balanced ale that I will always have when I see on cask.

Pale gold pour, decent white head. Taste is unusual for a light pint, somewhat malty, quite a sweet balance and quite fruity, followed by a bitter herbal finish. Decent enough.
