UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Bottle Light golden ale but unusually has strong citrus hop flavours with little hop bitterness. Easy drinking with a lovely taste. Very refreshing. A great summer beer.
Had on tap later - seemed less fresh and less flavoursome, surprisingly, than the bottle. Didn’t enjoy it as much as the bottle. Lowered my rating a little accordingly.

330ml bottle. Rather lager-like in that it poured a lively, clear pale straw yellow with a foamy one-finger white head atop. Fresh and juicy aromas of lemon, mango and tangerine. Similar flavour-wise with a gentle pale malt sweetness finishing with a zesty, pithy bitterness of low intensity and short duration. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a near watery palate texture. Balanced, crisp and quaffable but lacks bite and mid-palate presence. Nice enough but let down somewhat by the body and finish.

Beautiful sunday afternoon drop with flavours well crafted to suit the heaviness. Smooth to drink. Good head golden appearance. Very nice beer. Best ive tried in a long time. Best consumed though by the 6pack on occasions. Not a day to day beverage.

Bottle at Byrons, Kingston. Slightly cloudy, pale yellow and very little head. Bags of citrusy hops but overall a bit thin and watery.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014
May 2014 - Keg at Draft House. Very pale yellow, pretty clear, two finger bubbly white head. Aroma - lager malt, light citrus. Body is light, medium carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste - toned down, very soft malts, touch of lemon and cream, semisweet lemon meringue, soft bitterness. Flavour is decent - just not enough of it for me. (3.4)
Aug 2014 - Keg at LCBF. Pale yellow, a bit cloudy, small white head. Aroma is very light with some background citrus. Body is medium to light, high carbonation. Taste is lemon, musty malt. This batch is overcarbonated. (3.2)

Comes out straw coloured. But the first contact with the aroma gives you a glimpse of a Pacific island. Lots of beach fruit. Lychees, rockmelon, possibly mango come through. Has a spritz feeling before sweet finish.

Draught at the Exmouth Arms, London on 12 April 2014. Poured a cloudy yellow, with a thin white head. Aroma of satsuma, honey and grass. Some citrus hop flavour, lemon zest and bready malt. Finish was flowery, with some straw and boiled sweets.

Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours lightly hazed yellow ith a tight, white cream head. There’s definitely some tangy citrus on the nose, lemon in particular. Light sweet flavor with lots of zippy, pale citrus fruits, suggestions of brett, salty lemon, touches of pale bread sweetness. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Cleansing to finish with more lightly tart lemon, hints of bitter citrus rind, a flurry of salty bite. Well, this is damn tasty; but it drinks like a Berliner weisse and I can only imagine it is not the Stone and Wood...well, I enjoyed it.
