On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours golden with a slight haze and a nicely proportioned head. The nose has grapefruit and pine. The taste is just wall to wall grapefruit. The palate is medium bodied and creamily textured with a tangy fresh finish. Overall, the grapefruit aspect is a little one-dimensional but it’s well executed.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Handpull at The Eagle (Shepherdess Walk). Clear gold with average white frothy head. Smells and tastes like citrus zest, floral bitterness and cereal non-sweetness. Solid body, astringent and solidly carbonated. Pretty good!!

On cask at the Haymarket. Pours a light golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, barley and yeast. Similar flavours, quite grainy overall. Mildly dry and bitter with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel. Nice.

JohnRMurdoch (3407) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2012
Cask @ The Volunteer. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head. Minimal resin aroma. Resin, tropical & citrus fruit flavour. Fruity aftertaste. A bit watery & I think a slightly over-rated blonde beer.

500ml Bottle.Wen first opend the aroma was generally weak but when allowed to breathe a lovely orange nose. Appearance is of a darker than average golden beer with a thick white head that becomes increasingly lacey. Taste is of biscuity malts giving way to a citrusy then bitter finish. Not sure why i held off tasting this one for so long but it aint too shabby!

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Cask at Wellington, Birmingham, 4.2% ABV
Light amber color, creamy head. Light aroma. The flavor has some light malt, and light bread trace; light caramel too makes it just a bit better than other simplistic Ales; it has a light British fruitiness too; the final is just too bitter, with light metallic note.
Not bad, but a bit rough.
