Cask @ CPK. Light golden color with a modest off-white head. The nose is quite fresh, full of cut grass, sweet lemon The taste is quite pleasant. Nicely hoppy, plenty of citrus fruit flavor. But this isn’t overpowering, not too bitter. Multiple pints are certainly possible. The body’s medium, the carbonation subtle and light. Overall, a very nice, pleasing beer. A great edition to Dark Star’s permanent rotation. dantheman278 (1365) - SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2012
Keg at Holyrood 9A. Yellow amber, thick white head with some lacing. Big tropical resinous nose, lychee, mango. Juicy resinous palate, hint of citrus, more mango fruit, massively hoppy! Long resinous bitter finish. SaintMatty (7559) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2012

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Really good APA. Clear gold, loose bubbled head. Smells brambly and slightly leafy. Taste is certainly hops, but strikes me as UK hops, which may or may not be true. Clean, long bitter finish. Good tanginess. Ringing clarity of purpose.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 keg, Knott Bar, Manchester. Pours a hazy orange. Predominantly pineapple & sherbert flavours giving a bittersweet taste, leafy/earthy finish, with yeasty flavours creeping in. Intriguing and unusual. Rerated on cask in the Kings Head, Carlisle. Lovely tropical fruit aroma, very faint sherry background. A bit of booze lurking in there with a hint of blackcurrant and caramel. Very good. Kingy737 (4) - - MAY 8, 2013 does not count

Clear gold beer. Sour hop aroma. Flavour is similar with a strong sour fruit taste and a dry hoppy finish.
