On cask Arkwright Arms, Duckmanton - Hazy yellow body, thin white head. Sweet lemon nose, hint of pepper in there too. A little sweet in the taste but rather refreshing. Quite a good one on a warm day.

imdownthepub (15129) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Brewery Tap, Chester. Hazy gold with white head. Light malty start to the beer, lemony then hoppy, with a pine like favour leading to drying grapefruit. Very decent.

dogbomb (1244) - ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Gold. White head. Peppery and lemon on taste and nose. Really nice light summer ale. Finish is lasting.

3.5
leaparsons (10696) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are biscuit with lemon and dusty yeast. Slight peanut notes with woody hedgerow and peppery grapefruit. Florsl aspects with clean cereal. Flavours are clean lager-like malts with pithy lemon and grapefruit bitterness. Well hopped, grassy and tasty for it’s strength. Good.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton, 15/09/12. Dusted yellow with a loose but tenacious head. Lemony, slight wet fur, wine gum, blackcurrant, peanut and curry leaf aroma. Husk and lemoniness with parsley like-herb, mid bitterness. Best Raw beer I’ve had.

ladnewton (2014) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton on 27th August 2011. Amber to gold with thin film head and skeletal lacing. Yeasty aroma. Hoppy liquid with grassy notes and the sharpest of grapefruit tangs. This strong citric note carries to finish where it lingers as the main feature. Slightly smoky wash over these flavours.

dynamiteninja (1875) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2011
Cask. The Salmon, Leicester. Thin white head, gold body. Peppery hop, citric, biscuity, malt. Bitter. Dry finish.

Fin (10820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2010
Cask, gravity at The White Horse, Hedgerley, Bucks, 31-07-10 in company of Loz, dad & Pauline Pours orange/gold with lovely clarity, for some reason I thought that this was stronger than 3.8% and just called Raw-Solstice but the details I took down on the beer were sketchy and internet search has shown these details, surely they can’t have brewed two called Solstice? There is a light citric nose to this, its like that half grapefruit that you have for breakfast occasionally with a little brown sugar on top. Taste is tongue lashingly fruity, some grapefruit bitterness coming through afterward’s, its lovely and on of the day’s favourite’s. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6
