3.7
reidyboy (797) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2021 Pale gold with a frothy white head and a soft floral and citrusy aroma. Light bodied and very smooth, the citrus notes predominate, giving it a certain zest, but there are some floral undertones and a hint of light malt in the background, which mellow them out, finishes dry and slightly bitter

3.6
imdownthepub (22698) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2021 Cask conditioned at The Old Harkers Arms, Chester. Gold with white head. This proved to be a light citrusy beer, there is a pleasant tangy character, some restrained tropical fruit flavours, pineapple, hints of peach. It develops a pithy bitterness later. An enjoyable beer.

jjsint (6391) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2018
Handpull cask at the Pretty Bricks, Walsall. Dark gold, clear with a tight little white head and a good lot of lacing. Grapefruit, pineapple and a lovely little resinous note of the aroma. Sweet taste with enough bitter hop to balance out the finish. Grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. One of the better Salopian beers I've had of late.

Cask Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2011 in Oct 2011 - Pale Gold in colour. Fruity; grapefruit citrus and tropical fruit. Hoppy; piney and grassy hops. Malty; biscuity malts. Refreshing. Moderately bitter fruity hoppy throughout. Drinkable. (2011-10-16)

minutemat (12073) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Cask from the brewery. Pours clear gold with a good white head. Aroma sees some mild lemon and grapefruit. Taste is quite an easy-going citrussy pale, hints of grapefruit, but generally not diverting your attention too much. Good sessionable Salopian.

3.4
Theydon_Bois (34238) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2016
Cask at Bwerwolf Books, Falmouth, 28/04/16. Clear golden with a decent off White head. Nose is citric hop, lemon drizzle, toasted bread, orange sherbets. Taste comprises orange pith, melon, tangerine, citric tinged straw, light bread. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with a light juicy hop finale. Decent enough happy sessioner.

3.2
Towey1989 (5546) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2016
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, slight pale malts and some spicy, herbal hops. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, some crackery malt and slight spicy, herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A lingering, dry, slightly lemony, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A decent pale with some fresh citra and saaz hop characteristics. Bit light but a good session ale.

purpledragons (61) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
On cask at the Three Fishes in Shrewsbury on 10th of April 2016. Very pale with a tight white head. Some subtle citrus aromas, but quite subdued overall. Very light in body and in flavour, with some grapefruity and general citrussy flavours. Very much a summer quaffer, not offering enough oomph for me at the moment.

2.7
BlackHaddock (13111) - The County Time Forgot, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Oct 2011: Hand pulled half pint in a London Wetherspoons during their autumn 2011 beer festival: this beer and I were a long way from home, both coming down to London from Shropshire. Good golden body with an off-white crown of tight bubbles. The aroma was a pine, citrusy hop one, no maltiness in the nose at all. The smell came from the Citra and Saaz hops used in the brew, they also imparted their flavours into the taste, which was of semi-sour grapefruit (well almost) and hints of malts. Thirst quenching more than satisfying, but pleasant enough without being something I’d drink on a regular basis. Light in texture and body feel, but flavoursome and easy to drink, even if I prefer malts more than citrusy hopped beers.

3.2
ManVsBeer (16615) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2012
Golden ale that is both crisp and clean and has a very healthy taste to it.
