On tap at BBF’12. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of light malts, floral, grassy, very fresh green aroma that turned out to be cucumber. Flavour is fresh, green, grassy, light floral, malty, light bitter finish. Light bodied. Not a cucumber fan, but this was a nice beer.

Keg at Borefts. Clear straw pour,thin round white head. Light malty aroma with a lovely gorgeous floral grassy flavour and a nice sharp bitterness that sits nicely on the palate. Didn't quite get the cucumber but its an amazing golden summer ale that is worthy of its rating.

On tap at Borefts Beer Festival, Bodegraven, Netherlands, Friday 28th September 2012 Fresh, cucumbery nose, very vegetable perhaps a little to much but it is likeable even for me who utterly and totally hates cucumber. Good but bettered by the Aussie Summer Ale. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Cask (handpump) at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico on 21 April 2012. Pale colour. My goodness, this really does smell of cucumber. Whether or not that’s a good thing I’m not sure. Light, delicate and perfumed. Interesting of course but not really my thing I guess.

Cask at Deramore. I only tried this because it was from the trusty Thornbridge. Glad I did! Pale malts with a very subtle hop character and then suddenly you are struck with delicious, fresh cucumber. This must be a love or hate ale for some, since the cucumber is so very evident. I ended the night having ordered 5 pints of this beauty!

Tried with my husband on cask. My favorite Thornbridge beer. Really light, refreshing summer drinking with unmistakable cucumber in the aroma and finish. I honestly don’t like real cucumber, but this worked wonders. A top 10 cask ale for me.

Cask. Pale yellow, white head, Good lacing. Aroma of fresh cucumber, biscuits, and pale malt. Light malt in the taste that finishes with cool cucumber and then hop spiciness that blends wonderfully with the cucumber akin to salad dressing. I really like how the cucumber is the key component of the taste while being far from overpowering.
