allmyvinyl (11026) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 19, 2017

3.4
Towey1989 (3270) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, some orchard fruits and subtle earthy hops. Taste of grapefruit, orchard fruits, some herb and slight earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, citrus and earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A very hop forward pale. Quite dry with citrus, fruit and earthy flavours throughout. Like a little bit more balance but otherwise for its strength it’s very good.

3.1
BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Cask, half-pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates Shropshire on 6th Apr 2017. Light golden pour, clean, bright and clear, white crown on top. Typical Mallinsons citrusy brew, subtle differences in which citrus fruit comes to the fore, grapefruit seemed to win in this beer.

jamestulloch (4330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden body with lots of yeast flecks and a thin white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of Crunchy Nut, lemon, peanuts and lavender. Flavour of grapefruit, cherry tomatoes and green banana. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Light fizz. Ugly and quite soapy.

Cask @ The Cellar, Chester [011215]
Light blonde, clear, thin white head
Aroma of soft citrus, light pale malt, soft grapefruit
Taste of nice bitter zest, fruity grapefruit, nice clean pale malt background, really good flavour
Palate - Light body, bit oily, nice bitter zest, good bitter sweet balance, clean palate. Finish of fresh lingering bitter zest, just right.
Overall - Mallinsons are just great at making these light pale hopped beers. Quaffable, easy, good flavour.

3.9
zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
4.0% ABV bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale straw coloured pouring with a large white foamy head. It has a tropical fruit and grapefruit flavour followed by a smooth sharply bitter finish. Very bitter and nice for a low-ish ABV beer.

3.9
DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, NYE 2014. Brilliant gold whipped hugely with a meringue head. Red apple, melon, passion fruit and freshly zested lemon mousse nose. Abrasively bitter with huge tonic, grapefruit, soapy lavender, deep grassiness and perfume, bitter bitter pine and resins. Little gnaw of background chaff and nut husk. Punishing and aromatic.
