mr_h (3405) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2015
Cask by hand-pump at Sir John Moore, Glasgow - potent citrus aroma, clear pale yellow, lively white head, very good lacing, grapefruit, lemon, initial aggressive bitterness which lessens as it goes down, prolonged hoppy aftertaste

SilverfoX (576) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
smells citrus and grass, golden amber colour body with no head, quite a sharp chalky citrus flavour, not bad if not a bit watery, tastes stronger than it is

DanielBrown (4034) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Cask at Wellington, Brum. Unexpectedly good. A strange thing to say, as Oakham are amazing, but I guess I thought the low abv would hold it back. In fact, the flavour packs a wallop, bigger than 3.9%. Revived a jaded palate.

prawlie (1234) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
Pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Golden, with a fine bubbly foam head. Dry, bitter, light grapefruit, tasty. Grapefruit aroma, but not over the top. Very dry aftertaste, but still manages to slip down well. A good English (albeit American influenced) golden ale.

berkshirejohn (4961) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Cask at the Duke William, Burslem. Pale straw in colour and slightly cloud with a tight white head; fresh citrus aroma; sweet grapefruit taste; with a strong lasting bitterness and grapefruit aftertaste. Better than the average citrus summer beer.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Ribs of Beef. Clear straw yellow with a deep, frothy, white head. Hay, grapefruit, some sweet peach. Big bitter finish with a tiny flourish of malt. Light bodied and refreshing. Strongly hopped light golden ale with low abv - good summer drinking.

Leighton (13254) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Cask at the Old Fountain - London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a frothy white crown. Smells great, lots of citrus rind and grass. Light sweet flavor with heady bitterness of grapefruit, lemon rind and grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Grassy and lightly resinous to finish, with delicate pale malt sweetness and mild hay. The bitterness is a touch abrasive, but aside from that it’s nice.

RichTheVillan (4042) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Cask at Barton Arm 10th Anniversary fest; light amber pour with soapy white aroma, citrus aroma, big citrus taste backed up with sweet malts. Decent level of bitterness.
