This is going down particularly well with some Digger Barnes. I’m going to return the favour by giving Owen some DFL. Lost Cause.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Had this many times at the Bat and always good on keg here. Never had in bottles tho as many here have... Always a pleasure this one. Easy, fruity goodness all round with that cheesy undercurrent that’s hard to nail. Hazy orange,sitting in a bright window on a summer’s afternoon. Funky fruit and summer breezes. Cool and still musky fruit pond in sunshade. Tickle on back of knees. Orchards on acid.

Niall73 (2230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Keg at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy orangy colour with thin white head. Aroma is slight tropical fruit with a slight cat piss edge and some mild funkiness. It's pretty good. Some pineapple, grapefruit and a dry bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acid303 (435) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - NOV 3, 2013
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with small/medium lating white froth. The aroma is orange peel, citrus and hints of caramel and pine. Smells so good. Similar taste, one just gets some yeasty notes added to the rest. Dry palate, spicy touch. Medium body, good carbonation. Good job, very balanced.

allmyvinyl (6031) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh. Pours light hazy gold, foamy white head. Aromas of caramel malt, citrus hops, orange and grapefruit, light resin. Taste brings more of the same, quite rich and satisfying. Creamy, and with a clean finish. Good.

beer-yum (792) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 27, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Alluring "West Coast" aroma and full bodied nicely balanced flavour with an enticing "watermelon" (to my taste) twist.

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 3, 2015
330mL bottle poured into a tulip. Beautiful effervescent copper colour with a large white head that leaves some nice lacing. Grapefruit and tropical fruit aroma and flavour. The mouthfeel is a little too astringent like a glass of berocca, but still very enjoyable.
