3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale straw, greenish tinge with white head. There is a lovely dry bitterness right from the off with this beer, really hoppy with a grapefruity character. Thin on the palate but lasting flavours in the mouth. Very decent and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump at The Bell Beer Festival, Adderbury, Nr Banbury, Oxon, 04.09.10 I am not 100% certain of the colour as I had this poured straight into my tankard, though I think it is looking a bit golden, there is a white head atop. Crisp citrus showing from the off. There are big grapefruit flavours, its a crisp, refreshing beer, with a constant bitterness running through and loads of grapefruit, tasty stuff and one of, if not my favourite beer of the day.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, 3rd Hinckley BF. Hopped up and pale to the point I had to go back and get another half, just to make sure it hadn’t been crossed with the Oakham (Citra). Straw with a white rim and lace specks. Grapefruit and pollen aroma- 8. Huge grapefruit punch, background earthy malt, peanut husk, Rich Tea hints. Wow. Lean, punchy, basic. Some really resinous, green, well-wrung citrus here. Pale/dark horse of the festival, no pun intended.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Playhouse, Colchester. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt hop slightly fruity leading to a medium bitter flavour with a watery malt liquorice hop bitter palate and a super long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It really was a super liqourice hop bitter ale but very drinkable and fine for a session. Actually i finished drinking this 5 minutes ago and the bitterness in the finish is still there!
