eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2002
pretty dull very pale pale ale - skewed towards the hops, which are fairly thin and one dimensional. furry yeastiness adds some peach and passionfruit notes.

swooper (1254) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2011
a bit of grapefruit aroma, pale, clear, white foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, good refresh taste, fruit taste as well, medium body, slick feel, long finish, bitter, soft carbonation, good but not awesome beer

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2004
Cask at Vat and Fiddle, Nottingham. Oh, Elsie, come to papa! Brewed next door to the pub (Castle Rock), they might as well just pipe it straight through cause this goes down a storm. Pale gold, off white creamy head, floral nose, creamy melon taste, absolute knockout.

RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 6, 2007
Cask, Kingdom of Fife BF 07. Light yellow colour, no head. Nose is citrus hops, lemon, some dull malt. Very watery, metallic finish, some lasting citrus. Quite odd.

edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Cask - bright golden with a thin white head. Good lacing. Head quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of apples, peppers, grapefruit, coriander seeds and a hint of biscuit. Taste of hay, lemon, grass and some orange with a light malty base. Medium, soapy body, soft carbonation.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Cask at Rock and Gaskill, York: aroma is of citrussy hops. blonde colored. Flavor tends towards grapefruit, but very crisp with a wonderful flavor that lingered for along time. thin palate. Pretty nice. Cheers!

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Cask. Golden. Clear but with some suspended particles. Lovely floral, perfumed scent, with oranges in it. A bit watery, very bitter. Lots of mandarins in the mouth with a dry hoppy end. An excellent summer beer.
