steveddy (11) - Chichester, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Pours very light and see little thin looking. Citrus aroma dominates. Flavour is pleasant but perhaps a bit one dimensional. Carbonation vanished quickly. Nice, but maybe tastes better on a Cornish beach.

Davros IX (353) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle at home. A nice, fresh hoppy and citrussy beer that quenched the thirst and tickled the tongue. A good colour and a nice light carbonation.

Mr_Pink_152 (4980) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Tried at the strait and narrow, Lincoln. Golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is light malty caramel. Taste sweet. Thinish.

BeerNinjaUK (466) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle from Tesco. Pours golden yellow with thin head. Aroma somewhat citrussy and fresh, but nothing too exciting. Refreshing and drinkable.

kwik-lime (1925) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle at the Bakehouse in Penzance. Fairly strong piney hops and caramel malt to balance. Fairly strong fruit notes, lovely beer.

Vladivostok (485) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2016
Nice, drinkable strongish golden ale. Drank it several times on the Isles of Scilly. Stronger than most in the category and particularly smooth and more-ish. Good beer.

mjs (7259) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2015
(Cask at Angleterre, 20151014) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small, white and it lasted long. Aroma had herbalness, earth and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were herbalness, earth, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A bit weird but still tasty hoppy pale ale.

Tide (3880) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Draught at Black Door. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, a nit of hops, pine and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, pine and grass. Very nice real ale.

dj (620) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with a frothy white head. A floral, soft citrus aroma. Flavour has a little citrus, maybe some coriander notes too. Wet dog in the finish. Fairly watery, moderate carbonation. Meh.

SarkyNorthener (4604) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle from tesco, barnstaple. Very pale golden beer with medium bubbly head. Aroma is lemon and pale malts. Taste is cereal grain, lemon, fruity and pale malts. Good stuff.
