JOHNS17 (26) - Glasgow, - MAR 22, 2012
Cask at Last Post. Pours clear golden with tight shaving foam head. Nose obscured by oiliness and soap.Tast mildy citrus and over very quickly. Overall a very mediocre offering but he biggest question must be how any brewer can produce such an insipid offering from two of the most aromatic and citrus inducing hops ( Citra & Nelson Sauvin) is beyond me.

prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Cask at the Wheatsheaf in Crick. Light and floral fruity ale. Gentle bitterness, very hop led but much better than the Banks's beers I've had before. Quite refreshing.

Cask at The Bridge Inn, Menai Bridge. slight citrus in smell, poured a hazy yellow/orange with a good head, staying throughout. Cleared up after 10 minutes. Smooth light bitterness, medium sweetness, with slight citrus taste.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2015 Cask at the John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint. Good looking golden beer, laces well with a thick white head and a slight haze like a hot summer day. There’s a spicy, grassy aroma and the flavour is citrus all the way with a touch of lemon shortbread in a dry finish. Gorgeous on what will be one of the last hot Sunday afternoons of the summer.

MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Quite fruity aroma but with a massively hoppy hit. Very light yellowish colour. Leaves a really tacky aftertaste. Definitely on the sell list ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Towey1989 (3438) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Cask at The Mulberry Leaves, Leek (Marstons) A clear pale amber colour with a creamy thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, lemon, sponge cake, grapefruit and some grassy hops. Taste is the same of pale malts, lemon, sponge cake, grapefruit and grassy hops. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A dry but smooth grassy hop finish. A creamy golden ale with decent malt and hops flavours. Ordinary but well done.

TedE (1544) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2015
Pint on tap. Fresh citric nose, melon/grapefruit. Golden clear beer with solid white head. Excellent grapefruit flavour with a touch of caramel in the finish. Refreshing, you could drink a few of these on a hot day, no problem.

jfb (6984) - GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
(gravity) clear deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of cactus juice, light caramel and some resin, with a light hint of fish sauce and nettles. flavour is mostly cactus juice and herbal hops, with a hint of mango, some light lemon peel and yeast. light- to medium-bodied with soft carbonation.
