Clear amber beer with a decent frothy head. Aroma is citrus with a hint of hop. The taste is mild citrus with a tangy, hoppy edge to it. Not much body to it. It’s quite nice and I imagine it’d be very pleasant to enjoy a few over a summer’s afternoon.

MrJamesMcEwan (35) - SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, yellow, with a small white head that disappates to thin. Light bodied, light carbonation, very fine bubbles, lots of lacing. Aroma is medium pine and mandarin, slightly grass and lemon. Taste is clean, medium bitter, lemon, mandarin orange and hoppy. Finish is clean, dry bitter and crisp. A very refreshing and easy to drink crisp, bitter beer.

Hop_Hedonist (243) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2014
Looks and tastes more like a hoppy lemony golden ale - and a pleasantly bitter one - but an IPA? No. Needs more body and complexity to be an IPA (imho) - genuinely refreshing and easy drinker though - very quickly consumed. A good drink.

MichaelAwesome (3882) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Wonderfully in the hops with lots of fresh fruits and some yeasty moments. Heavily drinkable and refreshing. Bit watery in the end.

Pours out of the bottle in a light hazy golden-amber colour with low head and medium to flat body. Aroma of fresh hops and mandarinas. Taste of fresh hops, flowers, spruce, pine, citrus, thyme, spices and mandarinas. dry-bitter finish. Nice one.

ogniskowicz (70) - - JUN 12, 2014
Ciekawy aromat grejfruta, słodów i winogron, skontrastowany bladością koloru i niezłą pianą. W smaku dość mocna goryczka, ale tak specyficzna, bardziej pasująca do lekkiego bittera, brak słodowej podbudowy, w tym wypadku wzmaga pijalność. Niezłe piwo.

Marstonlad (408) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Tap in a bar at Edinburgh. A clear golden color and a little head that leaves lacing. Aroma features floral notes and citrus; the fresh fruitiness seems to point to a strong hoppiness. Taste is not a disappointment: it is medium bitter - at least - and offers pronounced fruity character. Hoppiness is surprisingly strong for a British ale. The palate is medium bodied, averagely carbonated. This was a positive surprise: a good combination of easy drinkability and a crisp, bitter taste.
