A very pale golden ale. A real hoppy beer packed with American Columbus hops - very bitter and thirst quenching with a satisfying herbal finish and massive aromas.

Cask at Red Lion beer festival. Gold with white head and aromas of orange, baked bread and hops. More prickly hops on the tongue plus biscuit malt. Dry and astringent lasting into the finish. Very refreshing.

Cask conditioned handpump The Rake Borough Market. A yellow straw coloured beer with whitish bubbles. A very watery thin dull beer. A slight hoppy snatch but otherwise poor and weak willed. No Belgian wit notes at all in my book.

Cask (handpump) @ Wenlock Arms, 26 Wenlock Road, London, Greater London England N1 7TA.

Bottle. Color is yellow, pale, toward white. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit, fizzy bitter with a long aftertaste. drinkable, with character.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Market Porter.
Gold with a decent white head. Nice and fruity, plenty of citrusy stuff and a good hint of grass. Good malty base supports it well. Very srtaight forward but very pleasant too.

AndrewC (379) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
500ml bottle conditioned: Good strong herby hop smell. Strong herb-hop bite with hints of pink grapefruit. Quite drying and more-ish in the way fruit-pastels are. Another good Otley beer.

Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 22nd Sept 09. Hazy golden yellow with a little bit of head. Intense floral and nettle aroma and flavour. Even a hint of ganja on the nose! Basically very fresh, very intense hops. There are orange, lemon & grapefruit flavours too but the beer is not overly sharp - you just get the notes on the back of your throat as it slides down. Which it does very easily.

anders37 (27907) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2009
Cask @ Volunteer Arms, GBBF 2009. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty citrus hoppy aroma. Fruity malty citrus hoppy flavor with some hints of grapefruit. Has a fruity malty hoppy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.
