allanmb (247) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
Pours slightly hazy golden with decent white head which dissipates quite quickly. Aromas of light biscuit malt, honey and hint of lemon zest. Decent carbonation and reasonable mouth feel. Taste is quite malty but light lagery malt. Hint of honey again. No real aromatic hops in here just bittering which leads to the semi dry, bitter finish. Not one for the hop-heads as you’d be sorely disappointed.

beeebon (438) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
330ml bottle from Tesco, pours a hazy golden yellow with frothy and long lasting white head which sticks to the glass throughout. Aroma is quite mild, not as hoppy as I was expecting but surprisingly that doesn’t mean it is bad, not at all. Slightly zesty citrus and caramel malt. Taste is medium sweet but with enough bitterness to keep it clean and good. Mildly carbonated but just enough to maintain interest. Not watery although not a long finish taste wise. An interesting one and rather good too!

Bouteille achetée chez Intercaves. Bière légère aux notes houblonnées et acidulées. Très rafraîchissante.

MrHangover (4334) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2017
Bottle. Pours a semi clear, golden beer with a big overcarbonated white head on top. Aroma is floral and perfume-ish, tropical fruits, passionfruits and citrus zest. Also some malty touches in there. Flavor is fruity as well, but has this soapy thing going on which is hard to put a finger on. Highly carbonated for sure, bittersweet flavor overall and medium short, bitter aftertaste. Dry on the palate. Decent beer in my book.

radassace (213) - SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. All sorts of bits floating around in the glass ! Very citrus, tropical aromas with some caramel on the nose. Taste starts off with the malts, silky nice and sweet and then come the tropical peach, apricot and grapefruit. Mellows out a bit again to more sweet malts and then a lovely bitter finish with a touch of resin. Oooft this is good !

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. Amber colour. Very citrus fruity and tangy (grapefruit and lemon). Hoppy (grassy and resinous hops). Spicy (peppery). Malty backbone (bready malts, caramel). Yeasty (lots of sediment). Zesty, tart. Moderately bitter citrus fruity and hoppy throughout. Dry bitter citrus hoppy finish. Nice beer! (2008)

Andrus86 (625) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2017
BOTTLE. (Batch1084, BB dec15, drunk feb17) Pours a cloudy gold with big bubbly head.. That dirty generic nogne head that comes with there "base beers".. Taste has held up, good golden malt,a touch chewy, yet with enough "fresh sweet" hop to not be dull, score is for aged version, yet I would rate much higher fresh.. Sourced my old stock cellar

Bottle from marks and Spencer’s. A decent ale, strong grapefruit flavour and a good alcohol level to take control of the bitterness.
