flying_pig (1495) - SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2017
330ml Can from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer, Glasgow:
Quite a light & very easy to drink offering from Brodies, it was a great session beer with some subtle tropical fruits & a nice sweetness balanced well against the faintest of caramel sweetness. It was crisp & came with a nice tang that helped it down without making it a classic from the brewery.

johndoughty (5196) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle. Yellow with a small head.An amazing amount of body and flavour for its strength, something this brewery seems to be very good at.Full of fruitiness with hops also bouncing around. A very good beer.

thellgren (914) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Pint draught (cask) @ The Old Coffee House, Soho, London. Quite pale indeed. This is basically citrus flavoured hops and water, i.e. Session IPA. Id like to taste some malts too.

Garrold (4771) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle. Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Straw colour, with a gentle haze. Film, and some bubbles of white. Nose has lemon sherbet. Grain. Chalky mineral. Hint of pineapple. Taste is lemon rind, and chalky dry. Soft bitter. Crisp, although a little thin. Finishes light bitter. (Oh! Ive just spotted the lemon sherbet thing in the commercial deScription. Get me!).

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
September 15, 2014 - at Old Coffee House; handpull. Hazy pale yellow (again a greenish tinge? must be the lighting in there) with a minimal mottled off-white bubbly head 3-). Smells like citra with tropical fruit, cut grass and fresh lemon - fairly sweet malt character but not too much of it (lemon sherbet in a glass indeed) - pretty nice stuff; light alcohol. Taste has even more lemon and pungent cattiness, but an odd note intrudes - burnt rope, or something peaty - it really detracts - brewing defect? Average body, a little still and astringent - medium coating finish; get rid of whatever this is and bump this score by .4 or .5.
