Keg from Twisted Barrel Brewery Tap, Coventry, Friday 29th April 2016 Hazy warm gold appearance with a white rim for a head. Pineapple on the nose and bizarrely that little bit of bile/sicky aroma, not much and it’s still a great aroma btw. Great bittersweet balance a damn good session beer, Loz gets Grapefruit I am erring move towards tropical. Went back for another one later and Loz is right, it is more grapefruit. Like it, like it a lot. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

jamestulloch (3375) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of tangerine, mint leaves and lightly toasted bread. Flavour of grass, lime and zingy grapefruit. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. The hops really shine in this. As with the first reviewer, it reminded me of a Mallinsons beer.
