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.

0.5 litre bottle from Waitrose. Pours clear orange amber with minimal head that dies quickly. Aroma is citrus, hint of pine, mango, hops and malt. Flavour is a moderate bitterness that is short lived. Light body with moderate carbonation.

Bottle from local supermarket. Pale yellow, clear. Nose has some woodsy green hoppyness, some crunchy caramels. Lightish, but round nice body. Bitter, with a dry finish. Loads of flavours- green berries, some lime citrus. Real nice drink.

AlbionOakley (31) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
This is very good. A proper size bottle, sorry America, this pours a pale amber with a small head which doesn’t stay. Refreshing and crisp with a balanced hop flavour

bottle shared by the ever kind dennooooooomannnnnn. Pours light golden yellow with a massive head. Woow, the fruity citrussy nose and the balance between hops and crisp palate. Light body, but very tasteful for so low alcohol. Like!
