355ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a medium, frothy head. Aroma is sweet, with pineapple and bread. Taste is sweet, a little pineapple, some astringency. Another boring new beer.

jasonbenali (123) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Pours clear copper with mild carbonation. Aroma is restrained. Marmelade, tangerine, caramel, peach and touch of soap. Taste delivers more than the aroma. Nice sweetness, mild bitterness and medium finish. Not bad and certainly good value.

mikepaterson (1) - Bowers Gifford, Essex, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2016 does not count
A very nice beer, full of flavour. Strong but not overbearing. Great value and stands up well against Punk IPA, which is another favourite of mine.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Aroma fruity with weak citrussy hops and some weird hairspray vibe. Not unpleasant though. A bit too sweet and rather watery, but not bad for a supermarket "craft beer".

hatzer (132) - Nuneaton, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Not bad this actually fruity and malty at the same time good balance really needs a touch more hop

allmyvinyl (9318) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle at a friends housewarming. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Citrus and malt aromas, light red fruit, light butterscotch. Taste is more of the same. Sticky finish.

Stuu666 (10263) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden, nose is toffee, floral, light citrus, taste is dry toffee, orange.

RobBestwick (823) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
355ml bottle. Light floral aroma. Cloudy bronze in colour with a frothy white head. Spicey lemon/lime hop flavour with malty and caramel notes. Creamy and fully bodied with a bitter citrus finish. Pretty good.
