With a couple of weeks maturation and a minimal amount of venting, this beer is stunning when first on. The description they give (as with all their beers) is spot on with the addition of grapefruit and some really firm malt. More of the same I’ve heard. Well there are similarities to most of their beers, of course - pale and hugely aromatic beer is something of a forte. The actual fruit flavours that derive from different uses of different hops is wonderful and sometimes subtle, sometimes bold. This has a big finish and the variety of fruits work very well together. Not good though if not looked after. As per. Really balanced bitterness that adds to the mouthwatering character, the aromatic fruits just lead on perfectly to the palate.

Fukito (733) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 27, 2007
Stillage @ CAMRA York Beer Fest, november 07. Shinny pale golden color with a small bubbly white head. Full, fruity flavor, lots of things going on: pineapples, strawberries, apples. Nice, full of character. Medium to light palate, malts blending really well with the highly fruity hops. Dry crispy finnish. Highly aromatic and perfumey citric hops. Hoppy, flavorfull light bitter.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 08. It’s funny, when you get to a beer festival you look at the beers that you wanted, but have sold out or didn’t live up to your anticipation and you are a bit disappointed. It is only when you look back at your notes and see how many stunning beers you’ve had, that you think, "Hey, that was a pretty good day!" I had a good run of excellent beers around mid afternoon including this one. Decent blond beer. Attractive citrus hop aroma. Decent Dark Star Hophead style beer. Still, a very good blond beer, good grapefruit flavour. Very decent.

Half pint @ Old Hall Beer Festival in Chinley. An explosion of fruit flavours on the nose, grapes, gooseberries and guava. Well bittered, nice long finish. Thoroughly refreshing beer. Yellow colour, bit of a head but not much. Loved this one.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Cask in Crown and Sceptre. Colour is pale yellow. Nose is lovely grapefruit and passion fruit with some real zesty citrous. Taste is pithy grapefruit and lime bitter. Very light bodied and light in the mouth. Re-rated from 3.6 to 3.8 at The Green Man. Juicy zesty citrousy beer. Damn good.

jaguarxj6 (36) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Cask@Blue Stoops,Chesterfield. Highly aromatic smell and tastes similar. Clear gold with tight head that lasts quite well. Don,t think it,s quite as good as Yankee,but it gives it a good run for it,s money. This brewery turns out some pretty impressive beers which are distinctive and slightly different from the norm. Another one please,landlord.

A Mes rate: Cask at Baker St. ’Sporks.
Lovely bright clean gold with a good white head and would you believe it, good condition. From a ’Sporks, whowouldathunkit? Strong grassy and lemony hop nose with a delicate vanilla note. Flavour is a lovely balance of big citric hops and pale earthy malt. Light notes of straw and peach. Bitter finish with good length. Plenty of character and possibly the best beer I have had from such a crap pub.
