niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 On cask at The Wharf Inn, Welford, Northants. A great golden coloured summer drink with strong citrus taste. Very smooth and an excellent beer for it’s style. --- 08/05/13 - cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Not as outstanding as before, however, this may because there is so much good stuff around at the moment.---- 01/04/2015 - cask at Post Office Vaults, Burslem. kept in good order and still a decent pint.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 8, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina, Tampere.
Pours a clear yellow colour without a head. Aroma of very strong citrus and orange peel with grass. Flavour of bitter hops, grass, citrus and some sourness. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, citrusy bitter, finish. Yet another pleasant golden ale from Oakham.

Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2011
0.5 l bottle at Kitty’s, Helsinki, thanks Jukka S! Golden to copper color with quickly vanishing head. The aromas of caramel, green apple and tart resiny hops. The flavor is biscuity and caramelly with some green apple and resiny hops. Low carbonation, reminds very much a cask ale.

Slightly hazy palish gold beer. Soft to dry palate. Refreshing clean and light hops - citrus grapefruit. Faint sweet pineapple note before the carbonted bite of a finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Nice.

dynamiteninja (1863) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2010
Cask. Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Thin white head, clear gold body. Citrus, grapefruit aroma. Bitter. Dry finish.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ ?Royal Oak Twerton or the Raven, Bath, forgot which. Hazy pale gold with thick lacy band. Sweet juicy malts and esters of lychee and ripe plum. Juicy beer. Sweet entry and middle threatens to get cloying until it finishes with a flowery bump. Quite nice, a bit yeasty but overall balanced.

kwik-lime (1926) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Oh yeah, this is great. Light, summery beer with good hop character and just the right amount of great citrusey notes to provide a good refreshing taste without being overbearing. Superb.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2010
Cask. Pours a clear golden with a white head leaving some laces. Fruity nose and skewed British hops. Medium body, lightly sweet fruit and distinct citrusy hops. Finish is dry. Quite fresh. 160110
