curzie (2) - warrington, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014 does not count
Love this. Curacao orange peel, cloves, cardamon and loads of spicy undertones. Quite flat, which I found a little disconcerting at first (out of bottle), but I shouldn’t have worried. I now want another!

JKaranka (47) - Cardiff, WALES - DEC 11, 2012
Have had this in cask multiple times. Pours a nice light orange (or so it feels). The aroma has fruit (tangerine and peach), some spices, very inviting. Usually lively and medium bodied in the mouth, with a nice clean, grassy hoppiness. Taste again is overwhelmingly of fruits, lightened by the hops and the spice. It feels a bit full to be seasonable, but in a summer day it does go down pretty well. In overall it’s a nice drink, it’s very easy to pour to ale and non-ale drinkers alike.

got this bottle in my first box from beer52. very pale looking beer that tasted very nice had a lot of sediment at the bottom of the glass. it has bitter tones to it and you can taste the coriander in it. i would like to try it from the tap to compare with the bottled version

Bottle. Slightly hazy with a very definite hoppy bitterness. Some traces of fruitiness. Pleasant and easy to sup.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle, Carringtons, Manchester. Cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma definitely shows off the orange and coriander (as hinted at on the bottle). The flavour was pretty spicy with ginger and coriander more prominent than the orange/citrus. Nicely balanced hop bitterness in the finish. Really interesting stuff, great to try something different amidst a sea of bland, samey brits.

Leighton (11872) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Clear yellow pour with a dense, white foam head. Stinging aroma of citric and grassy hops. Light to medium sweet, with sharp citrus, wheat, subtle yeast, weeds and grass bitters. Light in body with average carbonation. Strong grass hops in the finish, mild bread. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 A lightly hazed blonde ale with a thin light white head. A light clove aroma, fresh and smooth, light incense notes. In mouth, a smooth herbaceous malt, light Brett notes, very nice. Bottle at Mondial 2011, June 12, 2011.
