DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
The Felix, Nuneaton. Bright and lacy with a beckoning gust of greenery, nettles, Darjeeling and grapefruit. Doesnt quite deliver on that promise but has a go with soapy grapefruit, flowers, jellied citrus, some creeping almond of booze. Nettles and soap. Good bitterness. Barely a crumb of nutty malt. Solid.

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle from Cellar Door, Four Oaks. Pours golden, very clear, single finger head that goes down quickly but a small bit lingers. Aroma of citrus, lychee, lemon, grapefruit, touch of orange. Taste of initial lemon, then a touch of grain, a bit of grass, a bit hay, then lychee and grapefruit to finish. Would get this again!

allmyvinyl (10281) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. ABV4.4%. Also no mention of ginger. "Smooth golden bitter, Citra and Styrian hops give an intense citrus, tropical fruit experience" apparently. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas are lemon and soap. Taste is herbal lemon, light grapefruit. Thin body, clean finish. OK.
