Good solid bitter, nice smooth biscuit malts with a gentle hop note and nice little bitterness at the end.

This is a dark ale with burnt nutty flavours combined with a distinct citrus hoppiness. It really is very tasty, and a couple of pints go down a treat.

This was a nice and light beer, found it light and easy to drink. Discovered this on a tour of FFF and even at the end of the tour it went down well. Good taste as well

Fast settling, minimal head. Flowery scent with light taste. Palate evolves with malty & nutty flavours. Very drinkable when well kept.

Great session beer. I could drink this until the cows come home.

Light amber colour. A nice hoppy bitter, easy drinking, refreshing, with a bitter aftertaste

One of four ales in a boxed Christmas gift set - enjoyable mix of malty and citrus flavours with a bitter taste. Would have liked more than the 1/2 pint bottle of this one.

Cask @ the wonderful Wellington Arms, Bedford. Colour of dark gold/amber. Decent amount of head with extreme lacing. Light fresh grassy aroma. Unremarkable but inoffensive. Taste is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. The maltiness shines through but is tempered by the bitterness. An excellent bitter from a class brewery.

2nd beer from my Christmas gift set and much better than the 1st bottle. A lot hoppier than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. Nice carbonation leaving a thin white head. I could drink a few of these.

Bottle at home. Orangey brown colour. Light, thinnish palate. Tastes ok though, slightly malty but with a nice dry hoppy finish. I quite liked this.

I have spent many a splendid hour supping this fantastic beer. Light enough to be consumed in sizable quantities (ahem), refreshing, flavourful and with a good bitter kick at the end. It's simply a great all-rounder session ale. If I could marry a beer it would be this one. Citra Sonic would be my bit on the side...

On cask at White Horse, Woolton, Liverpool. Pours golden with stiff white head. A golden look but a traditional taste to this malty bitter. Very well kept and enjoyable.
N, Stoke on Trent • 21st May 2013

Pours golden color with a huge frothy head. Aroma of grass fruits, goose berry bush and toffee notes. Flavour of goose berries, grass, citrus fruits and some mild caramel.

Aroma: The smell has honey and peaches in it. Some sour grass.
Appearance: The beer is clouded pale amber, a white rather firm head that leaves no lacing and no curtains.
Taste: The taste is mostly fruity, apricots, lemon, some peel bitterness at the end.
Palate: Little carbonation, watery and with a small body, but rather refreshing a slight dry finish.
Overall: A lawn mower bitter? This beer was a real ale version and claimed to be only 3.8%, and for such low ABV it was not at all bad.
