A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton.
Hazy yellow with a faint greenish tinge. Pleasant dusty hop snout with a good dose of lemon. What makes the aroma enjoyable is sadly the same thing that makes the flavour not so great. Lots of lemon and coconut, some spice and a little flat otherwise. Good bitterness in the finish but itís not really enough to save it. Interesting and it certainly gets plus points for doing something different but itís just not my thing.

Cask-conditioned at the Star, Talybont 07/09/10. Pale gold with a slight white head. Aroma dominated by the lemongrass, with a touch of sweetness and floral hop. Spicy flavour, with lots more lemongrass before a dry finish. A bit overpowering.

On tap at Southampton Arms. Strong lemongrass flavour, pleasant blond beer base. But it is more flavour/perfume than beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the newly opened Craft beer co in London. Hazy yellow straw appearence. Interesting aroma slightly citrus earthy. The flavour is adjunct forward with the lime leaves for me being the stand out flavour. I did not pick out the lemongrass. The hop character of this reminded me of the sorachi ace single hop beer ive had, although Iím not sure which hops they used. This beer was very refreshing and sessionable.

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Cloudy wheat beer appearance, with nice pale froth. Smooth and chalky in the mouth with an interesting array of flavours: lemongrass, some coconut, herbs. Really unusual, but it works for me. Really good.

Light blonde with noticeable galangal and subtle lime on the nose. The lime on the palate helped to cool the spicy chilli of the noodles and a spicy malt finish with a hint of the bubblegum/hay/tangerine flavours from the sorachi ace hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light and crisp. Light soapy foam. Almost no aroma with the exception of a slight bit of pine. Taste is of orange, veggies, citrus, and soap. Really a unique flavor. Not bad despite the soapiness. Some floral effervescence. Tried at the Sheepís Heid Inn outside Edinburgh in 2012.
