theprof (880) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
Cask at the Grinder to mark Christmas past. Muted citrus aroma by Blue Monkey standards. Honey gold with thin lace top. Tasted pleasingly of ripe soft fruit with some milder floral notes. Nothing to do with Christmas unless its global warming. Or an advert for summer. Underwhelming

14th December 2014
Bright clear gold beer, thin white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with very fine carbonation. Very light and clean pale malts. Hops are a well balanced smooth citrus, tangy orange with a trace of lemon. Mild peel. Light finish. Easy drinking but could have and maybe should have punched harder with that hop profile.

Garrold (5066) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear golden colour. Filmy, white head. Lemon, grapefruit zestiness. Unfortunately, some fusty, wet cardboard too. Taste is mango sweet to start, then a bitterness that stays an age. Not quite right.
