Bottle from Bernie’s Real Ale Off License, Solihull, Poured a cloudy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is dry crisp and with a little citrus fruit. The flavour is grapefruit sour that dominates the beer. It’s fine initially but it takes over and lingers through into the finish. I struggled to finish the whole bottle. Not very unpleasant I’m sad to say. This is sour, but not in a good way at all. tampierre (1387) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 5, 2013

Phil: Pretty OK hoppy bitter. Nice fruitiness. Good balance. Anna: Aroma’s a bit dull. Soft sweetish palate. Pretty OK. More grains than hops. Phil is shit.
Hazy high yellow gold with a thin, fizzy, frothy, no lace, diminishing, off-white head. Smells of toasted and caramel malt, sweet fruit, buttery, with a sharp grassy hops and flowers. Medium watery body with soft carbonation. Tastes of hops and dry toasted finish. Citrus and pine needles. Rather enjoyable and easy to drink.

500ml bottle - fresh citrus nose, hazy straw coloured body, white head. Reasonably solid palate, with a zesty citrus taste and aftertaste. Not bad. stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUL 19, 2012

Straw colour, clear. dense white head, good lacing
Aroma - slight sweet fruity pale malts
Taste - Soft quite sweet pale malts, bit of citrus zest, soft cereal, lots of bitter hops.
Palate - soft carb, thinninsh body but a bit oily texture. Palate is bitter bitter. Finish - lots of bitter cereal hops...way over lingering and a bit mineraly.
Overall - The finish was way too bitter and lingering for me - it’s a metallic cereal sort of bitterness. Maybe it was an off batch considering the other comments here

Hazy gold beer. Frothy white head. A slow persistent gusher but doesn’t smell or taste infected. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Creamy dry malt. Fresh hops - grapefruit and a whisper of orange. Some minerals before a dry finish. Respectable.
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Hazy straw colour with a thin white head; citrus aroma; clean citrus flavour with a fruity malty body; and a tart, sharply bitter finish. A straightforward but enjoyable summer ale. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats in May 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Hazy pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Strong dusty hop in the long aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives loads tart citric grapefruit full in the mouth. Strong hop resins give a dry dusty citric aftertaste which builds into a hoppy finish with grapefruit peel evident in the palate. A decent summer session Golden Ale.
