downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Cask-conditioned at the Shakespeare, Prince Street, Bristol, 11/10/2016. Golden in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Biscuity malts, citrus fruits, leafy hops and a moderately bitter finish. Good.

Nurmis (684) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Draft at the three stags pub in London. Pours golden and slightly hazy with a large white head. Honey, hops, some fruitiness. Watery.

DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons. Did not pick the NZ hops. Shows what I know. Very bitter hops, green, hedgerow, early cricket season dew tart. Quite good. Good value too.

nbroadbent (5) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016 does not count
Slightly fruity citric aroma, quite hoppy but not strong; reddy amber in colour with a slight haze, head is a wonderfully fluffy just off-white medium size head that reminds me of a draft bitter; mouthfeel is incredibly smooth with a reasonably light body and very little carbonation. Overall it’s a great looking beer with a very nice mouthfeel to it but neither the aroma nor the flavour is strong enough for it to be a great pale ale.

Svesse (8599) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2016
(Cask at Craft Beer Covent Garden, London, 24 April 2016) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, biscuits and grass. Malty, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, lemon peel, grass, biscuits and a balanced citric bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and highly drinkable with a fresh hop character. Nice one.

jamestulloch (4109) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of white wine, vine tomatoes and gin. Flavour of lemon, grassy hops and red pepper. Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. I’d like to try this on cask.

ATulloch (304) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2016
Bottle shared with Jamestulloch. Pours a clear orange with small head. Aromas of orange peel, grass and vine tomatoes. Flavour is orange pith with light citrus and fresh hops.

toscanoigor (287) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 16, 2016
Tomada do tap. Dourada, com pouca formação de espuma, turva. Aromas muito agradáveis de frutas cítricas. Na boca, o gosto cítrico dá origem a um final levemente amargo e refrescante. Ótimo corpo, boa sensação de frescor.

BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2016
500ml bottle into a Batemans badged UK pint sleeve at lunchtime on 11th Jan 2016. Slight haze to the golden pour, on top a white foam that hung around. Hop nose and flavour, fairly bitter and dry on the palate. Mild citrus notes but nothing too strong or overpowering it that area. Hops marry well and the light malt content stops the bitterness running away. Liked it.

dchad56 (500) - - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle - small white head over pale amber, slightly cloudy amber. Medium carbonation. Strong fruity aroma. Slight ting on tongue and in mouth, strong citrus tasting with bitter tang at end.
