500ml bottle. Pours cloudy gold with very little head. Mild aroma hides very heavy hops with an immediate sourness that gives way to a long bitter finish. Huge amounts of citrus with some tropical fruit. Dry, refreshing and hugely enjoyable.

LazyPyro (1602) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty, biscuit, citrus fruit. Taste of biscuity malts and citrus fruit, slightly floral, finish is bitter. Light body, oily texture, fine carbonation. Very nice and refreshing, definitely one of the better bitters I've had.

Hanoi (974) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle. Nose is toffee, hint of caramel. Taste is biscuit, lightly hoppy, citrus, caramel, floral, slightly herbal dry hop finish. Fine.

Fairly bland ale, not a great deal of citrus notes that I can taste, or much malt backbone.

Pale pour, nice sweet citrussy smell. Quite a thin palate but lovely shandy-esque refreshing taste with fruits and background malts. Superb summer bitter.

Biroholik (1545) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Luton
Kolor złoty, czysty w 100% klarowny trunek. Piana średnia, biała, opada w dół, słabo znaczy szkło. W aromacie zioła, lekki cytrus, mocna zaparzona herbata, delikatny przypieczony chleb. W smaku słodowe z chlebowymj nutami, poza tym zioła, delikatne herbaciane akcenty. Trochę ściągająca goryczka z cytrusowym tłen. Przrciętne, ale nie ma co marudzić.

nihtila (3913) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Cask at Guildford Arms. Very pale, almost like colored water. Nose is citrus, light dough, light floral. Tastes light bitters, light toasted caramel, doughy malts. Ok.

Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Pours golden with a fading off white head. Aroma of hops and light fruits. Bitter hoppy taste with light citrus flavours and a dry and bitter lasting aftertaste. Some light carbonation. It’s OK, it has flavour, but for me the aftertaste is just too bitter and not refreshing enough. It comes bottom of the pile of all the Oakham beers I’ve tried.

Evilkniamhel (1039) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 20, 2017
On cask at Stockbridge tap. Pours clear lemon gold. Nose of daffodils, fruit. Taste is fruity, dry finish.

@Gallow’s Bird Real Ale Festival 2017

golden clearush. Clean, bit dull malty, wheaty , bit maizy nose. Light. Watery, weak. Feels like a mexican real ale.
