Bottle from Waitrose. Colour is light amber, with medium white head. Nose is delightful. Lightly citrous, grapefruit, lemon and sweet fruit floral, lychee. Lots of aroma. Taste is light citrous grapefruit and lemon, delicate fruit flavour and light malt. Top top beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle. Its nose is of malt, fruits and a biscuitiness. Its a pale amber in colour with a very good white head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass. But this beers outstanding feature is its taste. the slight malitness gives way to a very citrus taste and a bitter finish. Not getting the lychee and gooseberry mentioned on the bottle BS. A very very decent pint.

Cask from old poets. A bit disappointing. Too bitter for citra and not much in the way of tropical or citrus flavours.

Fruity, refreshing ale. Stronger than it tastes which could be dangerous because it’d be easy to guzzle!

Bloody nice pale ale! Thin white head, pale still body, strong grapefruit aroma, interesting fruity and bitter wet taste which ebbs to a dry finish. Cheers!

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Wellington, Birmingham. Don’t think much of the aroma - smells like armpits in August after a long run. Tastes great though - huge hop hit and a long finish. Not much beyond the hops though. Blonde. Small head. Decent. Spoilt by that aroma.

Aroma has excotic fruits and citrus, caramel. Hazt yellow. Taste has fresh and crisp citrus, lots of flavor, pine. Fizzy carbonation, light feel. Nice crisp fresh thirst quencher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from super market. Amber color, white head. Strong bitter taste with much citrus, pine, grapefruit and caramel. Good depth in body for such low ABV. Dry bitter finish. Excellent brew.
