Probably the best beer in the world at this strength. Citrusy and green tea aroma. Balanced flavor with English malt and tropical fruit hops in great balance. Dont understand the reviews that give a so so score based on strength. Wow!!!!!

On cask at Euston Tap. Fresh grainy beginning. Tropical fruits in the hops, round and intense, fresh with a grainy and not too sweetish body. Nice.

Cask-conditioned at the Barley Mow, Bristol 23/8/2016. Pale gold with a thin, white, head. Aroma of tangerines and pineapples, with some light malt sweetness and leafy hops. Flavour had more fruits, slightly creamy malts and a dryish finish. A great sub 4% ABV beer.

Superb session beer. Nicely hopped, fragrant and pale colour make this ideal for a few beers on a summers day in the lakes

mR_fr0g (10585) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Cask at the brewery. Pale yellow clear pour with a steadfast pure white head head. Aroma is fresh cereal grains, light hedgerow berries, faint citrus. Flavour is tangy grains, faint lemon, cereal, light cut grass. Palate is light and refreshing, grainy, good cask condition. Lingering grassy hop. Nice light pale ale.

Towey1989 (2214) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of soapy lemon, pale malts, honey and grassy hops. Taste of lemon, some grapefruit, honey, subtle biscuit and grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Exceptionally good for its strength. Light but hoppy, bitter and citrusy, citra is slowly becoming my favourite hop.
