Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, bubbly-foamy white head. Nose holds lots of dried grapefruit, mango and orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with more orange and grapefruit, some mild tropical fruits, lightly sugary pale malts, white bread, straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly dry to finish, some straw and hay, dry pale malts, bits of orange and lemon. Very tasty stuff. Well balanced.

Nilz (345) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Cask - an amber ale with a slight hazy & pale white head. Aroma - citrus fruits and malty. Taste hops with lemon or orange notes and a fine bitterness. Decent enough. I’d try it again.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2013
Cask from handpump at bar 3, half shared with Finn at The National Winter Ales Festival. Copper-amber coloured body. No head. Semi-dry, grapefruit nose. Taste of succulent oranges and grapefruit supplied by juicy malts. Fresh bittersweet fruity end. A good fruity thirst quencher (Manchester, 24.01.2013).

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
DIrectionless. I am not. Who said that? Aimless I may be (should that be maybe? Maybe it shouldn’t). Some nice hops here for a bitter, not your classic smooth British bitter, more flavour. Better.

Pudding (163) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
500ml bottle. Faulty. Low carbonation, watery, poor taste. I dont believe this is representative of what the brewer intended. bb July 2013.
