brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
A slightly hazed pale yellow color with a white head. Smells a bit like lemon cleaning solution. Orange peel, some faint straw, and a hint of pale malt sweetness. The flavor is very citric and lightly tart. Some lemon sourness, a bit of orange peel, and a light bitterness. Slight apple, a hint of solvent, and a bit abrasive on the finish.

StueyD (1107) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A spicy aroma, clove and peppery, yeasty and a sweet fruitiness. Medium mouthfeel. A smooth and slightly sweet flavour, clove spice and ripened fruit, all of which is balanced by a tart yeastiness, which lasts into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (540) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 13, 2014
Pours a crystal clear strongly straw coloured beer with a large medium lasting white head. Noses of straw, barnyard, floral hops and hints of herbs. On the palate a medium livelyness occurs with a thin-slick texture with a slender body. The taste moves forward with herb, cough drop notes offering some sweetness and light bitterness. The finish is medium and light bitter.
