330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Light, hazy golden. Thumb-sized, foamy white head with good retention over the opening few minutes.

Bursts of tropical fruits & strong citrus/grapefruit notes, a hop-filled smell with some pine in the mix. Fresh smelling with lots of lemon but the aroma could've been more pronounced towards the end.

Again tropical fruits, pine & grapefruit with lots of citrus, particularly lemon flavours. A nice surprise was the caramel & pale malts to follow this up. Sorachi Ace hops are very strong with quite a lot of lemon coming through & a nice bitterness towards the end.

Light-medium bodied with medium carbonation & a semi-bitter mouthfeel. Smooth & refreshing at the same time with a slight citrus tang to it & a dry, lingering bitter finish.

A good introduction to Buxton Brewery beers, very enjoyable & quite refreshing. The aroma could have been a little stronger, it seemed to fade after a few minutes but a good beer & one I'd be tempted to pick up again if I spotted it anywhere.
