Cask at the 2017 Manchester Beer Festival. Gold pour with a white head. Nose of pepper spice, vanilla and citrus. Flavours of nuts and citrus. Not bad.

ManVsBeer (10476) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Cask @ Calans, Hebden Bridge. Clear golden-blonde with a head. Hoppy as expected, mildly fruity, but with a more dominant dryness.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2015
Cask, Kings Head Carlisle. Pale, bitter, sharp and citrusy. What Mallinsons do best. Lemon notes, tangy and tasty. Can’t say much more, it’s a good ’un!

500ml, bottle-conditioned. 4.1% Pours clear gold, with lasting white head. Little on the nose. Taste: citrus. Prolonged bitterness. Overall: Flavoursome, bitter beer.

leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a large bubbly head. Aromas are woody with pithy grapefruit and mellow oranges. Flavours are bready yeast with bitter grapefruit and dry woodiness. Quite resinous with citrus rind. Dry and spicy on the finish. Decent.

downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
At the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 22/8/2014. Golden wirth a slight, white, head. Light, malty base, with plenty of grapefruit and dryish finish. Fine.

Theydon_Bois (19541) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Cask at CBC Holborn, 18/06/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains. Nose is citric sherbets, light floral, mineral hint, orange pith. Taste comprises bitter orange, straw, mandarin, hint of bread dough, pale maltings. Medium to light body, a little on the thin side, very faint hop presence in the close. So so, it felt a little washed out and didn’t offer too much.

BeerViking (4798) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at the Magpie, golden with a lasting white head, lemony herbal nose, malty body is swamped by an acrid grapefruit bitterness.
