4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Pours a hazy golden colour with a good white head which retains and laces well. There is a lovely lemony, citrus hop aroma from this beer. The flavour is biscuit sweetness and lemony hops. This beer is medium sweet and medium bitter in harmony and has a very smooth velvety mouthfeel. An excellent IPA. My first taste of citra hops, this was thoroughly enjoyable.
Catching up on notes made while I was on holiday in the land of no internet.
This was a can on the train home. What can I say? It's Citra. Refreshing citric notes, sweet malt. It hews closely to the modern west coast style. Ungstrup (38417) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2017
Can. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, spices, hops, and citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, hops, spices, and citrus fruits, leading to a bitter finish. luttonm (6763) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2017
Can in Oxford. Bitter citra. Clean citrus IPA hop. Bitter English malt body. Alright. Ok hop character. Fair use of citra in English pale ale. Ok. miniash891989 (137) - - JUL 7, 2017
Drunk at home in a glass from a can. Brought from Marks and Spencer's. Fairly unremarkable but easy drinking and pleasure enough

500ml can from M&S, Watford. Very nice, and full of citra hop aroma and flavour. Crisp and fresh flavour. Very drinkable.

Surprisingly good stuff for what is essentially a supermarket beer, albeit one that’s from Oakham Ales. The beer is quite enjoyable from the start, the strong citrus flavours & bitter hops kick things off well & the beer manages to hold its own until the end with some earthy hops & a few pale malts showing at times. It’s not quite good as Oakham Citra from the same brewery but it was an enjoyable one that went down better than I’d expected.
Pours golden with a good white head.
Citrus and some metallic tones in the nose, although not offensive.
Citrus and malt with a little pine. Finishes with limited bitterness.
Not bad. Fullpintofbeer (439) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2017
Bottle from M&S. Small, white head, yellow/golden colour, clear. Aroma of citrus, lemon, grass. Bitter taste, light body, long finish, average carbonation. Quite a nice aroma, but flat bitter taste. Cokemonkey11 (1094) - - APR 4, 2017
Bottle. Pours pale golden mature IPA with a thin white foam residing thinly. Scent is light IPA and notes of lovely oak cask. Honey, citrus, about 50 IBU of mostly early hops, possibly brown sugar. Finish is smooth. Very good IPA. Davros IX (500) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
The flavour of the hops was very harsh and almost mouth puckering! To me there was no smoothness and I have to say that the mouthfeel was verging on the unpleasant. Maybe this was due to how it was drunk - out a bottle on a train leaving Paddington - but this is not one to repeat.
