Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Pale gold with a thin foam. Aromas are lemon peel with bready yeast and some spicy hops. Light mixed tropical fruit with hints of salt water. Flavours are crisp lemon with grapefruit juice and herbal, floral notes. Dry to finish. Not bad. Jonb5 (544) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2012
Pint at the JDW real ale festival. Golden colour, haze rose to the top but didn’t fully clear, one finger head, decent retention, kept some lacing. Aroma was mainly strawberry, quite pleasant. Tasted citrus fruits, finish long and bitter also a bit bready. Minimal carbonation, fairly smooth, texture slightly thin and watery. Overall decent afternoon summer ale, slightly lacking depth. cgarvieuk (24166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2012

Cask at The Bear (JDW), Maidenhead. Straw with a thin white head; grainy aroma; crisp with a predominantly citrus flavour and a grainy body; then a sour, grainy finish. No sign of the pineapple, and rather boring. madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Light haze on this pale gold beer. Little white head. Smooth palate. Mild minerally carbonation. Semi sweet pale malt with a trace of honey. Floral notes. Just a whisper of citrus bitterness. Neutral finish. Typical Italian stingy hops but the gruit like additions make for some interest.
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white cream head. Doughy malts and straw in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with light, dry dough, some vague fruit suggestions. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly sweet on the finish with basic sugars and dough, fine bitter straw. Decent balance, very drinkable.

Cask at Willow Walk, London. It pours pale yellow, with a small white head. The nose is rather sweet, floral, straw, citrus pith and sweet orange. The taste is lemon, lime, pith orange, tinned pineapple, soap, light spice, straw, floral and some decent bitterness, with a long dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Pretty decent. imdownthepub (14448) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazed gold with white head. Smooth, quite simple beer, a touch of fruitiness, nothing too distinct, some citric notes perhaps, thinnish. It’s ok.
