gegwilson (3592) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle in Vesuvio, Darlington. Pours cloudy blond with a big frothy white head. Noce lime aroma. Quite a light clean flavour with light spice and hay before a little lime in the finish. A craft version of lager and lime. A little bland.

Theydon_Bois (18418) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle at home, 11/10/16, Birthday bier at 12.26. Clear golden blonde with a well appointed off white head that retains well. Nose is lime juice, straw, toasted bread, lemon rind, faint floral notes, grains. Lime integrates a little more in the flavour, juicy citric rinds, toasted grains, lemon, clementines, straw, lime marmalade. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp clean close with another lick of limes. Decent enough pale, lime is fairly well integrated but not one Id keep returning to.

ManVsBeer (9421) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
Keg @ Drink? Hebden Bridge. Golden-amber with a thin creamy head. Mildly hopped, with a slightly stewed tropical fruitiness as the dominant characteristic. Fairly crisp.

SanDiego1 (42) - ITALY - SEP 19, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, schiuma fine e persistente. aroma con scorza di limone, lime, erba appena tagliata. Al palato corpo leggero, scorrevole, leggermente watery con un finale con lime che da il giusto amaro. Molto beverina

Towey1989 (2335) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lime zest, some gingerbread, grass and pale malts. Taste of lime, gingerbread, grain, some grapefruit, slight passion fruit, grass and pale malts. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, grainy, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Like a flat lager and lime. The citrusy flavours overwhelm the decent malty body. Disappointed.

mR_fr0g (10838) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Cask at the bottle shop st Albans. Aroma is subdued, tea leaves, lime, light grains. Clear light orange coloured pour with a fading white head. Flavour is composed of base grains, tea leaves, grains, light citrus. Pretty simple. Palate is medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Simple beer

leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
No fizz on opening and no head at all. Looks a lot like cider. Aroma is zingy of fresh lime and something else. Almost completely flat - I dont know if this bottle is a dud. The zesty lime flavours are ok but accompanied by a flavour which goes along with the smell I couldnt place - sort of honeyed dirt. The bitterness and the honeyed dirt without any carbonation taste a bit wrong against the slightly acidic lime flavours, like everything is a bit off-kilter. Assuming its not this particular bottles fault - worst Arbor ever. Strangely, the last of their beers I tried - Red Henry - was the best Arbor ever. Funny.. The Universe. Oh, I just tasted goat, no, sheep. But the wool of a sheep. Poorly cleaned wool of a sheep.

Alexi91 (437) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Origin: Tap. Vessel: Tumbler. Supplier: The Christmas Steps (Bristol). Lime notes hit hard with a backing of cinder and smoke.
