RayExcellent24 Jun 2011 First pint of 3 in the round smelt slightly eggy but the others were spot on. Served cool and refreshing. Tight white head, straw body. Citrus burst on the nose followed through a clean bitter, grapefruity taste with satisfying finish. All complemented by a solid malt base.

McGargleExceptional12 Apr 2011 Extraordinary! Very pale with tight white head. Bursting with citrus aromas which explode in the mouth - mostly grapefruit but orange and peach also present. Good malt body and long bittering finish. Served in excellent condition.
