imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2009
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.

Fin (7692) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
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.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2010
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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ Royal Oak Twerton. Medium gold, frothy head and lacing. Fairly bright hoppy aroma is pleasant, although some pedio does emerge by pint’s end. Smooth and soft. Really great bitterness here. An excellent hoppy mild I could drink a lot of.
