ATulloch (304) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Can from Deeside drinks emporium. Pours a light yellow/orange with a very lively head that lasts. Lovely lacing! Aromas of caramel, digestive buiscuits, lemongrass, raw flour. Flavour is grapefruit and lemons with a buiscuit finish. Great beer!

Cask in CBC. Been waiting for this to get listed! Been a lot of hype about this beer too! Thanks to The Cad for going down into the cellar and emerging with a lovely pint of this! Colour is clear amber with a bubbly foamy white head. Nose is sweet tangerine, tropical, floral and caramel.Taste is tangerine citrous bite, bitter hop, caramel malt and honey. Something a bit white winey and grapey in the finish too. Very good but not as mind blowing as their India Pale Ale!

[keg at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh] Gold, clear pour, thin head. Bitter, pithy citrus hop on the nose. Grapefruity, pithy lemon on the flavour, but also sweeter tropical fruit. However, leading into the long finish I get lots of grapefruit again. Big, bitter aftertaste. I get the impression that on cask this would be bittersweet, whereas on keg the sharper elements come out. Still a great beer though [29022012]

Cask, handpump at The Evening Star, Brighton,Saturday 5th May 2012 I’ve had this before at Peter Fowler’s, Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxon but clearly never got around to rating it, something I tend to do more & more often these days. Pours mid amber with a white head. Sweet initially but with a good hoppy punch. Nice fruity tang but really lovely beer tasting very much as the style suggest, wonderful fresh juicy zingy hops. Great beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Nickls (2535) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Cask. Frothy white head on a slightly hazy golden body. Biscuity, doughy, hops are a little earthy and soapy...very lively though. Nice bitterness, clean bright citrus and slight soapy hops. Medium to lighter slick body.

Cask @ Gallows Bird, Espoo

Pours clear golden orange with a bubbly head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lemon, malts, caramel and exotic fruits. Taste is hoppy with some exotic fruits, lemon, citrus and caramel malts. Finish is slightly sweet and hoppy with some fruits and lemony notes. Tasty, refreshing real ale.

HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
Handpull at Southampton Arms. Mostly clear gold, solid lasting off-white creamy head. Floral and heather-sweet grain aroma, hint of smoke. Taste follows - acidic goldings? Average body, astringent, okay carb, clean and crisp finish. Lovely pint, really.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2012
On cask @ Craft Beer Co. London. A light blurry one, packed with tiny particles and a small bubbly off-white head. The aroma is not extreme, but there is definitely some american hops going on here. Peaches and citrus with some malts in the background. Nice. It’s near flat on the carbonation and it has a light slick to sticky texture. Good hoppy bitterness here, and it’s quite malty-sweet. Citrus, bitter zesty grapefruits, tomatoes and some leather. A really solid one! 21.07.2012

Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 18, 2012
Custard cream and toffee apple on the nose. Quite bitter lemon cheesecake, mango and orange pith. Medium bodied, some bready malt notes, light carbonation, malty and pithy finish.
