Desverger (9871) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2012
(cask@Ravensbourne Arms, SE London) Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. small, good lacing and medium to light in body. Aroma is citrus hops and malt. Taste is very nice citrus caramel malt blend. Decent brew, very drinkable.

AshtonMcCobb (6056) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2012
On tap @ Marble Arch. Pours golden with a thin but attractive head and a decent level of carbonation. The nose is clean and hoppy - going down the lemon to grapefruit line. The taste has more of the same with some pale malt in the background. The palate is very balanced - medium in body and texture with a clean but not overly bitter finish. Overall, very drinkable indeed.

JorgeLee (1938) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Cask in the Southampton Arms. Yes, this is a Manchester bitter, I can hear my dad wittering on about how Bods used to have a really good smack to it (but that was in the 60s/70s, a bit more than 20 years ago). And here we have a pale golden bitter, austere malty dryness, bitter hop finish, supremely moreish and drinkable. Local bias perhaps but this stuff is awesome.

Bottle. Floral citrus nose. Well balanced bitterness, big grapefruit flavours. Feels a little like a wheat beer in the mouth. Will be buying more.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Handpull pint at Old Fountain. Clear refractive gold with a solid one-finger white head. Simple fresh cereal and herbal/floral dry bitterness in aroma and taste - some alcohol, really well-balanced (thank you for no sweetness!). Chewy, lightly astringent mouthfeel, decent body, longish non-aggressive dried flower bitter finish. Nice.

Nice full flavour. Doesnt last. Smells malty but without much aroma. Quite good.

Bottle, The Beer Emporium, Sandbach. Pours a lovely golden colour, nice head that lasted down the glass. Aromas of citrus fruits, flavour of toffee, caramel with a good hoppy bitterness. Really enjoyed this beer and would seek out again.

Firefly54 (244) - - MAR 15, 2012
Beautiful yet subtle pine hop aroma, a little woody. Taste is really well balanced. Soft tropical fruits from the hops and a lovely caramel malt finish. Some biscuit and cereal. Awesome mouthfeel. So drinkable. Im off behind the bar for another.
