Brewer’s blog: "New beer brewed today, Wreckless, a very hoppy / aromatic 4.8% Pale, loaded with Citra and Amarillo hops, looking forward to this one, should be lovely. Think it is time to start brewing at full length rather than the 50% I’ve been running at until now. Update : Just had a quick taste of Wreckless, massive amounts of citra and amarillo tropical fruits coming through,very pleased so far."

Leighton (15382) - London, Greater London, - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold with a massive, frothy white head. Some tangy, lightly dried citrus in the nose. Light sweet flavor with pale, vaguely doughy malts, a bit of tangerine. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly drying to finish, with some pine needles, mellow tangerine, mango. A tasty APA, though the hops don’t quite sing enough for me.

jjsint (1663) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Golden brown, not so much visible carbonation and a small ring of off-white head. White grape, guava and some sourness in the aroma. Bittersweet taste, with some pulpy savoury/sweet tropical fruit on the back of the sip. Very nice and refreshing. Is the body just a little bit too thin? Well, yes... but still very enjoyable altogether.

50cl bottle from Marks & Spencers, Camberley. A slightly hazy pale amber pour with a billowing cream head; spicy tropical fruit aroma; packed with tropical fruit taste; and a dry creamy finish. Satisfying.

Na, wenn das mal kein britisches Aushängeschild ist ! Mit so wenig Alkohol so viel Aroma und Bumms zu zaubern ! Schön im Hopfen, leicht in der Zitrusfrucht, super Perlung, milde Bitterkeit. Wenn Macclesfield Town SO zocken würde wie das Bier hier - wow.

Bottle from trade. The beer has got a hazy orange-golden colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops, oranges and blossoms. Taste of hops, flowers, pine, herbs, mild spices, oranges, blossoms, mild citrus fruits, bread. Wonderful to drink, very quaffable. Loved it.

Douberd (3728) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
( Redwillow Wreckless) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 4.8% Golden orange colour on the body, slightly hazy. Two fingers tall white head sitting on top, with very good retention. Aroma of citrus, light grapefruit, tropical fruits, passionfruit. A bit weak on taste at first but with nice notes of tropical fruits, citrus, grass, hints of grains, caramell malts and a mildly bitter finish. Eventually it leaves a positive impression. Medium thin body, good soft carbonation. Quite good.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with orange marmalade, pine and citrus flavours, a malty and creamy body followed by a grapefruit and pine finish. Excellent!
