hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, - OCT 8, 2011
Cask, gravity, at 34th Bedford Real Ale and Cider Festival. Gold. Citric aroma: grapefruit and mango or melon. Thick grapefruit taste and a bitter finish. I really don’t like this sort of beer, which is becoming very common. And I don’t like the fact they spell ’tranquillity’ wrongly.

Niall73 (1054) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a slightly hazy straw colour. Slightly perfumy aroma, a little grassy but very light. It's nice - ever, ever so slightly sour but has a sugary candied sweetness too. It's fruity and tasty, not very bitter and very drinkable. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (5530) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Cask at George, Croydon. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is pissy hops, bitter-sweet aspect, tropical fruit, candy and freshly cut grass. The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, mango, grapefruit, straw, floral, fruit salad sweets, resin and light alcohol bite with a lingering bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Balance, flavour and drinkability are all spot on. A delight to drink!
