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.

imaragingbull (569) - Sydney, - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours lightly hazed clear gold with decent white head, with some lace. Aromas of oats, pine, citrus, lychees and grass over a light malt toffee canvas. Medium light body, med-high carbonation; hints of toasted malts, sweet light caramel but citrus and lychees round out the hop flavour, finishing light refreshing and hoppy.

This has always been a go-to beer for me when I have to go to a certain Supermarket. Itís a really nice golden colour, decent white head too. Aroma is of lychee, lemon, lime and tropical fruits. Taste is a massive hit of citrus and with a nice fruity middle and decently bitter finish. Itís really brilliant when cold, but also top notch when on cask (itís a permanent fixture at the Wellington in Birmingham) A stonking British beer from an excellent brewery.

Not much more to add about this monster, if itís served at its best, itís nearly unbeatable. Craft at Clerkenwell got through a barrel in 2 hours a while back

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
2014-06-28. Crisp dark yellow body with a small white head and nice lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, moderate lemon and citrus. 7+ Flavour is similar, moderate bitterness throughout nice lemon and lemon peel citrus. Lemon grows as it warms, to its benefit. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Nice. Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow.

Oakham Ales Citra. Very light taste impression, but with a clear and sweet taste. Great as a refreshing fruity summer beer.

mgajdaczewa (448) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Aromat mało intensywny, czysty, nieco lagerowy, są cytrusy z naciskiem na cytrynę, herbata. W smaku gładkie, lekko cytrusowe,herbaciana słodowość, posmak goryczkowy, herbata z grejpfrutem. Takie... herbaciane jest to piwo. Sesyjne, pijalne, do picia w większej ilości w plenerze super.

50cl bottle. Medium white head atop hazy straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, tropical fruit, grapefruit, light berry, straw. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some tropical fruit, light lemon, straw. Light-medium body, some resin, somewhat dry finish, quite drinkable. So hoppy -- Session IPA?

Nice amber with small white head. In aroma hops, citrus, some pine and maybe also some grassy hints. Tastes good! Really good! Some caramel in taste with nice hoppy and bittery aftertaste.

jgb9348 (4650) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Slightly hazy amber and light copper coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of very fresh hops with some alcohol and grassy notes also around. Medium-bodied; Strong hop notes throughout the initial tastes with a lot of gtrain, alcohol and especially body behind. Aftertaste shows a good and relatively subdued hop note rise to the forefront of the palate. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from CityíSuper! in Harbour City, Kowloon on 04-July-2014 for HK35,00 sampled at home in my hotel room here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.
