3.1
jmgreenuk (9444) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 2, 2016
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, light citrus, floral hop. The flavour is light to moderate bitter with a soft light watery floral hop, light spice palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

3.3
ManVsBeer (10448) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. A golden-yellow ale with a smooth head. Has an abidance of hops but not overstated with a smooth tasting texture. Its tropical fruits are fairly light and there’s a bitterness here too.

3.5
leaparsons (10541) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are biscuit with leafy and mineral notes. Hints of mint with lime and orange. Yeasty with traces of sulphur. Woody with peppery notes. Flavours are grapefruit and bitter lemon with very dry biscuit and pithy lime rind. Low pine with white grape and a yeasty, bitter finish. Good.

3.7

3.7
JohnCook101 (535) - - SEP 5, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is zesty and slightly earthy. Flavours of cereal, sharp citrus, tropical fruit, a touch of honey and a hint of pine all finished off with a robust grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied, carbonation is light to moderate and fine. Mouthfeel is slick if not oily. Very nice.

3.7
Dommod2011 (706) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
I like single hops, bunny hops and hip-hop. I like hardcore dub punk hop as well. So will you one day soon. This was a charming little number, bitter and fruity. The 3.7 tells the story.

Garrold (5265) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Cask at Cross Scythes, Sheffield. Hazy yellow. White lasting head. Fresh citrusy aroma. A hint of grapefruit. Malt outweighed the hops for me in the taste. Lots of body to it. Possibly a bit tired? Not for me, this one.

4.4
JohnRMurdoch (4863) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2012
500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Golden yellow colour, reasonable head. Biscuit, resin, tropical fruit & hop aroma. Biscuit hop & citrus fruit flavour. Grapefruit aftertaste. Another great big tasting lowish alcohol beer from Mallinson’s.

3.7
madmitch76 (24789) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2012
13th October 2012
Euston Tap. Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate starts smooth but has a carbonated sting. Minerals. Fresh orange zest and yellow grapefruit flesh. Under this citric sharpness is a trace of sweet tangerine and tropical fruits. Finishes crisp and dry with orange peel and grapefruit bitter linger. Only a trace of the Mallinsons soap here. One of the better ones.
