Bottle from Bottle Baron. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of cabbage, plain crisps and potato peel. Flavour of dried grass, faint hops and paper. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Dull and forgettable. BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
5th Aug 2015: on-tap at Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Golden pour, almost clear, OK, it wasn’t really anywhere near clear, the head a thin white affair. Aroma of tropical fruits with some mango, lemon and lime to the fore. Taste was a decent blend of maltiness and citra hops flavours. Held together nicely, refreshing and satisfying with a good feel to the whole brew. Pyrmir (6094) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2015
On tap at O’Connors a while ago. Golden with small white head. Aroma soft with grass, lemon, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and pale malt. Taste has loads of citrus hops, caramel and grainy notes with a bitter finish. A bit unbalanced. Tselloufc88 (350) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015

From the trembling madness in York in the can. It says citrus, but in ipa terms it ain’t. Not my bag but then I like ipas Theydon_Bois (19498) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015

I’m with my grumpy uncle below, this ain’t no pils, a hopped up US take on it at best. This is an Aye - Pee - Aye for sure! Are you a Danish brewer in disguise - looking to be top of style ?!?! Rune (12760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2015
330ml bottle, batch 0142, bought at Sourced Market, St Pancras. Cloudy golden coloured body under a tiny white head leaving lacing rings down the glass. Mild aroma of grass and grainy malts. Citric taste on a backbone of pale malts. Bittersweet endnotes. Foamy in the mouth. Drinks quite well (shared with fiends on the train from London to Derby 20.02.2015). tiong (7277) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015

Bottle at home from Sourced Market. Hazed yellow straw coloured pour with a lasting light film of white. Aroma is Zesty lemon citrus with a tart edge to it. Some other tropical fruits in the nose, very fresh. Flavour comprises of bitter lemon, clean pale ale malts, some light toasted bread malts. Aggressive lingering biting bitterness put me off slightly. Palate is light and slightly dusty, quite refreshing. Moderate sweet grains. Not sure if this passes as a pilsener, but is a tasty beverage. Maybe too many IBU for my taste.
