Scopey (15687) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
Keg at Old Coffee House. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is grapefruit, lime, white grape grass and hay. The taste is pretty bitter, piney, grapefruit, grass, straw and pepper with a dry, bitter finish. Light-medium body and fizzy carbonation. Good bitterness. Rather nice sessionable beer.

[cask at the King William IV, Leyton] [Shoreditch Sunshine on pump clip] Golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt and grassy, citrus hop – although overall the aroma is quite faint. Taste-wise, a bitter golden ale. Decent but quite thin, the slightly musty hop and malt flavours just about come through, as does the dry finish, but it needs a bit more oomph [20092011]

Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
500ml bottle from Drink of Fulham, drunk at home, 20th Dec 2010. Looks great - very slightly hazy straw gold with a lazy white head. Grapefruit on the nose and in the taste as expected. Bitter finish. How to do a quaffable summer beer with decent hopping.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
Cask @ Old Coffee House. Pours a clear pale gold, with a small white head. Quite dry and crisp, strong citrus, grassy, piney, strong initial grapefruit, with a dry bitter finish. Enjoyable apart from an old sock smell in the pub

Leighton (22304) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask at the Cross Keys. Pours a clear, light yellow with a foamy, white head. Holds a beautiful, citra hop nose with orange, lemon and straw. Flavor is mildly sweet, faintly doughy, with great citric bitterness, grass, fine lemon and pine. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly bitter finish, citrus rind in the throat, modest but just enough malty sugars. This beer is superbly balanced and insanely good. Well done, Brodies.

ChrisOs Christmas Tasting. Clear pale gold beer. Light white head. Light frothy palate. Pleasant citrus, very orange marmalade. Whisper of peach and some grassy bitterness. As per the brewers notes - a great session beer.
