madmitch76 (21560) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
2nd August 2010. Thornbridge event at the Cask & Kitchen.
Hazy pale gold beer. Tiny white head. Light hop nose. Soft palate - very low carbonation. A little citrus and a little grapefruit tickels the taste buds. A whisper of sulphur - just a whisper. Finishes semi dry.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
2010-08-02. Lightly hazy yellow with a small foamy white head. Flavour is mild, very light bitterness throughout, subtle mild fruit with whispers of citrus, hints at lemon. 6+ Aroma is a bit interesting, mild lemon, lightly yeasty, muted straw. 6+ Smooth average palate. Mild but super drinkable, this might score more highly on a day by itself rather than in comparison to its Thornbridge brethren. Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, London

bobinlondon (1286) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the C&K, Pimlico. Gold with a healthy white head. Juicy sweet malt profile but balanced by a splendid citrus hop stash, with grapefruit predominating. Brilliant!

ladnewton (1763) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen on 2nd August 2010. Hazy gold with a white foam head and part lacing. Strong hops aroma of grapefruit and a touch of cheesy yeastiness. Beautiful grapefruit and herb bouquet in main kick an a tight citrus hoppiness on back of the mouth leading to a dryish grassy finish. Pleasant textured mouthfeel.

BeerViking (3991) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2009
Full bodied with aromas of hop and citrus, lots of dry bitterness, malt and orange on the palate. Satisfying and thirst quenching.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Cask Stillage at the Intake Club, Mansfield 12/04/2008 Hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy fruity and sweet on the palate with a honey flavour. A little creamy. Crisp and slightly bitter dry finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Dronfield. A really attractive bright gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma has lemony hops and a bit of toffee or caramel. The taste has good bitterness and again that hint of caramel. Good but lacking any wow factor.

Tried on handpump at the coach and horses thanks to Cat! Amazing aroma on this beer, really sharp zesty lemongrass citrus that i loved. fantastic refreshing beer with an amazing use of hops citrus and passionfruit abound....almost prefered this to Jaipur...but not quite!

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle Upon Tyne. This had a definite whiff of quality about it. Golden colour with a thin white head. Inticing aroma with bags of citrus and hop. Just knew I was going to like this. Very well balanced aromatic hop in the flavour and just very drinkable. Wish I could get this on a regular basis.
