Cask, handpump at The Sportsman, Huddersfield 17.03.12 in company of dad & Barry Gold in colour with a white head. Crystal clear, in fact looks very good. Soft in the mouth with a pleasant bittersweetness and good hoppiness showing throughout, quite tropical tasting at times. Yum, nice beer.

Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 29 Jun 2013.
Very pale in looks, weak urine yellow in fact: good white bubbley head that tried to stay the distance, but failed.
As you’d expect from a brew using Citra hops, this leaned heavily towards a citrus based flavour and aroma.
I know this beer is very popular with a lot of Real Ale drinkers and craft beer fans alike, but I’m fed up with so may ’samey’ tasting brews using citrus flavours to refresh us Brits: I want deep amber brews with a malt and hop balance when I go into a pub, not this ’new wave’ of light lager look alikes with lemon duck toilet cleaner as a base!
I’ve tried to score objectively.
