On cask at The Heriot-Watt Beer Festival. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. A Citra hop aroma, quite floral, with lemon and caramel also. Similar flavours although just a little thin. Mildly dry also.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester. A golden beer with a white head. Blighted by diacetyl with sweetness and some citrus. Sharper hops in the mouth but again shrouded by uninvited sweetness. Disappointing. Score 2.7
Subsequent rating scored 3.8 (Obvioulsy much better this time). Average becomes 3.2

berkshirejohn (6182) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2011
Cask at the Market Porter, Borough. Hazy pale straw in colour with a thin white head; citrus aroma; sweet citrus flavour to start then a sharp spicy bitterness. A decent summer ale.
