radassace (213) - SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy honey amber, with some small amounts of sediment floating around. Nose is citrus orange peel and lime and a bit of bready malt. Very thin mouth feel and dry on the aftertaste, but nice enough with those citrus hop notes. There is some flowery sweet element to the beer too. Good beer for a summers day I think as its light are very quaffable.

CroccyLc (13) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle conditioned unfiltered unpasteurised 330ml. Pours cloudy. Zero carbonation. Nice aroma. Nice pineapple and then Earthy, bitter hop aftertaste. I like. Like a bottle of Barrs pineappleade with American west coast hops.

nimbleprop (8071) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Sampled at the brewpub, pours a clear gold with some creamy, white head. Nose is what you expect, fruit, yeast, honey, grist. Nothing stands out. Flavor improves a touch, more flowers and chrysanthemum clear, some honey, some dough, some biscuit. Dry finish.

Cask at CPK, Pimlico on 15th March 2016. Pale gold with shallow off white non-lacing foam. Malt, fruit and yeasts in aroma. Fruity in-mouth with berries, tart citrus and a touch of fresh apple. Herby, grassy finish. Medium-bodied with a light mouthfeel.

beerjock (48) - - OCT 1, 2015
Another one from this brewery with very faint hints of citrus in the aroma and not much else. Pours a nice light golden colour with a light white head. Tastes between a lager and an average ale (In my opinion) Drinkable but nothing that would make me pick it off the shelf again.

chinchill (4746) - South Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2015
On cask tap at St. Andrews Brewing Co. Served a bit too warm, perhaps. Flavor: English and citrusy American hops? Whatever the hops are, they are more fruity and earthy, and theres a nice balance of light and medium malts with the hops. Near medium body with light carbonation. Soft, smooth but not dead feel.
