DandyLion (517) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Cask @ The Cradock Arms, Leicester. Nice pale colour. Citrus and floral aroma. Taste is zesty hops, slightly floral- nicely balanced with the malt. Good hoppy bitterness. Very nice actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Snegurochka (387) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2012
Cask @The Crescent, Salford. 5.Jul.2012 Clear straw body, small creamy head. Really lights up the room! Beautiful lacing. Aroma of hops, hints of raspberry, fruit and sweat. Taste of flowers, soap, ginger and banana. Quite funky. Soft carbonation and full bodied. Long aftertaste- it lasted until the next bar. Cheers to bar owner Steve for giving us this one on the house and for being such a charming, interesting and great guy. We’ll be back!:-)

Rune (7986) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2012
Half, hand-pulled cask at the great Crescent pub in Salford. Many thanks to landlord Steve for this one. Good looking with a bright, yellow-gold coloured body and a lasting low, white head blanketing the glassware. Fresh, plain hoppy aroma. Taste is hoppy, as well, offering hints of sweat, citrus and flowers. Bittersweet tail and oily palate. Has got a dry and crisp mouth feel. Nice (Greater Manchester, 05.07.2012).

Cask. Straw with white lasting head. Hoppy grapefruit nose. Grapefruits and light malts in the mouth. A real bitter, without being overpowering. Rich and delicious.

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2011
Cask (Tram Depot, Cambridge)
6- Slightly citrussy aroma, killed by the sparkler.
3 Mid orange, sparkler head.
6 Minerally and grapefruit put in the retronasals. Simple bitter taste, light malts, but loads of minerals.
3 Soft palate, carbonation low. More minerally in the finish, and bitterness is resinous.
12- Too much of the minerals, alas.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Cask. A - Light, clear gold color. Has a nice creamy white head that settles into a nice lacing. S - Good amount of floral and citrus hops. Slight bread smell too. T - A lot of floral and citrus hops intertwine together. It creates a tangy, bitter, and just slightly sweet taste. A lot of orange, nectarine, lemon rind flavors and even the slightest whisper of grapefruit. In the very background there is a bit of a bread taste. A touch of pine tasting hops comes in at the very end. M - Medium to light body and quite smooth. D - Very good drinkability. Smooth and very refreshing with the citrus and floral taste. These are definitely dominant, but not overpowering and unbalanced. These flavors stay on the tongue and are quite refreshing, making me want more. Notes: Much more citrus than I was expecting. Quite balanced with a lot of kind of flavors. Very nice session beer that is refreshing and easy to sip.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Bedford BF ’08. Pale gold with a small white head. Spicy underarm aroma. Not very exciting citrus in the taste. Can’t see why everyone loves this. Rather dull.
