jamestulloch (1516) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: Peachy and floral with caramel notes.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with fairly sizeable yeast flecks floating around. Massive white head that holds really well. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing.

Taste: Nice balance between caramel and citrus flavours. Tastes a little soapy with bitter, unripe pear notes.

Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Definitely doesn’t live up to its name - the head on this was huge! It’s hoppy but the citrus flavours taste unripe rather than punchy and juicy.

Pudding (183) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
500ml bottle. A nice drink. Highly carbonated, with deep, loose head. Hops maybe Saaz, that is peppery, spicy. Quite like a low gravity Belgian triple.

Very nice blond ale, strong hop aroma and taste with a big hit of fruit, an excellent beer which I would have again

CraftBeerNick (967) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
28th october 2012 Bottle home on a cold autumn night, early snow, this may be enjoyed best in the summer, anyway, pours clear, certainly not headless, big head that grows, aroma is weak, but fresh, taste is nice for the abv, overely carbonated for me, not that memorable and not a patch on wreckless

foxo82 (708) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
Cask at The Wharf, Manchester. Doesn’t live up to the name as this has a nice creamy head atop a golden body. Good lacing. Hoppy aroma and taste with nice balance of bitterness and sweetness. Some bitter lemon and pineapple amongst the hops. Very refreshing and smooth. Excellent ale.

kwik-lime (1361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Really enjoyable example of the style. Dry hop bitterness with a light, quenching hint of citrus, nice balanced and very sessionable. Excellent beer.

Meet the Brewer at CP&K. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer, tiny white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Nice juicy hops - a little mango, peach and citrus orange. Nice combination. Semi dry finish. Easy drinking.
