COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle; Regular. 4.2% in cask.
The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Minamizawa (54) - DENMARK - APR 16, 2015
Light in color, almost like a lager. Almost no head and foam dies quickly. Nose is hops and taste is hop with notes of grapes and a bitter finish. Not a beer I would drink many of, but interesting that they use single hop.

bax (1240) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
(bottle 10/04-2015) low white head, clear yellow color, slightly odd hoppy aroma, some bitterness, hoppy taste, some brew error just like Midtfyn for a few years ago.

Makaveli (12) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Cask / Fat Cat / Colchester / Ł3.30 Little to no head. Strong tropical fruit aroma. The taste is refreshing, crisp & full of citrus hop flavour. A really good beer, one I’d love to have at my local year round!

gregerik (12) - Kings Lynn, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
Piwo z browaru, który obiecuję sobie odwiedzić bo jest niedaleko. Sesyjny amerykański jasny ale, orzeźwiający, o przyjemnym grejpfrutowym charakterze, wysoki poziom goryczki, niskie wysycenie. Ma taki czysty smak, coś jak pils na chmielowych "sterydach". Świetne piwo.

mt_hall (147) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bottled. Clear, pale amber with a minimal off-white head. Citrus and pine on the nose, with a strong funk of hops. Silky smooth in the mouth; warm with a hint of fruit, then a very dry, not-too-bitter finish. Very good.

Wadders (5) - - MAR 28, 2015 does not count
Smells very much of special herbs. Light and fruity but still solid robust malty to back it up.

thiesen (178) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2015
Draught at Frb ølbar, Cph. Gooseberry, mandarin must. Strong taste of the hops with a good backbone of malts. Crisp and dry mouthfeel and it finishes well in a combination of dry hops and bready malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
