Pours into an imperial nonic a dull lemon yellow with a very this wispy white head that is gone in a flash.Mild citrus fruits and iron mainly in the nose,a faint breadiness as well,just light in all aspects.The mouth feel is pretty flat and light,wow this beer is not doing much for me at this point.Flavors have citric tones but it's mild and short lasting,a bit of green apple-like tartness and crystal malt flavors in the finish.How is this rated this high?

500ml bottle: BBD 12 Jun 2013. Poured into a Uk pint sleeve after working all evening at a beer festival and not drinking on 2 May 2013.

Misty golden body with a thin white head.

Citra by name, citrus by nature: grapefruit, lemon without the cheek sucking sourness. I don't normally like this style of beer but this quenched my thirst nicely and it fitted the bill for what I needed at the time. Golden, citrusy flavoured beers have had some crap scores from me over the years, but this one hit the spot.

Refreshing and pleasant.

Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma of Citra hops with green hoppy notes with some lemongrass notes and some weird grainy notes which don’t really fit that well. Taste is dominated by hoppy notes with some lemongrass and grapefruit and some weird grainy malt notes that more or less fits in the whole picture. Body is light with good carbonation. Well done even though I really don’t dig the malt profile.

Mostly clear straw colour with a smooth, creamy, white head. Good head retention and lacing.

Lovely light Citra aroma. Lemony and tropical. Touches of sharpness.

Mild malt with a sharp, citrussy hop character. Moderate bitterness. Very crisp and simple.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

A really solid beer. Excellent flavour and crispness.
