On cask at White Star, Stoke. Pours golden with stiff white head. Very, very dry. Overpowering pepper, hard work really. jmgreenuk (9863) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 18, 2013
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 (1419) - 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. jamesie1857 (1975) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2012
500ml bottle - fresh citrus nose, hazy straw coloured body, white head. Reasonably solid palate, with a zesty citrus taste and aftertaste. Not bad. stravale (3088) - 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.
