[email protected] Southampton Arms. Golden collour, small white head. Aroma is bready, malty, mild wooden, fruity and herbal notes as well, Flavour is quite similar. Hayish and quite grassy finish.

Cask handpull at The County Hotel Ashford. Clear gold thin white head. Little condition. Grassy hop. Ok apart from the carbonation

@ Royal Oak, Twerton. Golden colour with a slight haze. Fresh, leafy hop nose. Pithy, slightly sticky hop character. Long, dry and very appetizing.

Draught (Gardner’s Arms, Oxford)
Lychee and zesty aroma. Pungently hoppy taste. Has a fairly bitter finish. Sweet fruity aspects from the maltiness too. Hopping perhaps a touch harsh, but beside other beers that are somewhat lacking in character, I think I’d prefer a bit too much here, than a bit to little elsewhere.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale straw, greenish tinge with white head. There is a lovely dry bitterness right from the off with this beer, really hoppy with a grapefruity character. Thin on the palate but lasting flavours in the mouth. Very decent and enjoyable.

Cask, handpump at The Bell Beer Festival, Adderbury, Nr Banbury, Oxon, 04.09.10 I am not 100% certain of the colour as I had this poured straight into my tankard, though I think it is looking a bit golden, there is a white head atop. Crisp citrus showing from the off. There are big grapefruit flavours, its a crisp, refreshing beer, with a constant bitterness running through and loads of grapefruit, tasty stuff and one of, if not my favourite beer of the day.

jmgreenuk (9457) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 3, 2014
Cask at The Playhouse, Colchester. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt hop slightly fruity leading to a medium bitter flavour with a watery malt liquorice hop bitter palate and a super long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It really was a super liqourice hop bitter ale but very drinkable and fine for a session. Actually i finished drinking this 5 minutes ago and the bitterness in the finish is still there!

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Olde England Northampton 20/09/13. A golden beer with a bubbly white head. A zesty citrussy hoppy aroma. A bit grassy and overclean in the mouth. Late bitterness. Ordinary really.

DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2010
Cask, 3rd Hinckley BF. Hopped up and pale to the point I had to go back and get another half, just to make sure it hadn’t been crossed with the Oakham (Citra). Straw with a white rim and lace specks. Grapefruit and pollen aroma- 8. Huge grapefruit punch, background earthy malt, peanut husk, Rich Tea hints. Wow. Lean, punchy, basic. Some really resinous, green, well-wrung citrus here. Pale/dark horse of the festival, no pun intended.
