Bottle Conditioned. Pours a pale straw colour with a thin white head. Plenty of hops and fruit in the aroma, the taste is very fruity which leads to a long dry finish.

3.2
berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2010
50cl bottle from Bernie’s, Shirley. Dark straw with a dense cream head; sweet citrus aroma; crisp flavour with some tart citrus notes; and a really dry finish.

3.6
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle opened at the Lahore Kebab House.
Very clean gold with a reasonable white head and lace. Lovely crisp hoppy snout with plenty of grassy notes and some good earthy malt in the background. The flavour is virtually identical. Really crisp grassy hops with some faint citrus and a pleasing dry bitter finish. Nice carbonation levels give it a good mouthfeel and goes well with the dryness. A crisp, refreshing and well made brew.

3.4
Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009, 7th August 09. Clear golden amber, little head. Lots of grassy, dusty hops on the tongue. Finishes very dry but is a bit too cloying in the mouth.
