AndrewGood20 Jan 2007 Orange brown coloured beer with a thin head. Rich stewed orange flavours dominate with intense earthy/heathery hops. The finish is of toasted orange peel. A good beer but a little too 'in-your-face' for me.
IanGood03 Dec 2006 Gold colour with disappearing white head. Citrus, dusty hop aroma, delicate satsuma/tangerine fruits in mouth. Dry citrus hoppy finish. Good citrus hoppy kick, juicy and refreshing. Citrus has a real zing. I love the citrus flavours on this.

IanGood10 May 2006 Golden beer with thin white head. Yeast, hop aroma, biscuit malt, orange fruit. Really drinkable. Tad of stale malt and dusty hop on finish. Citrus is good. I like this, its summery
