Had on tap at the office in Summit NJ in a 16oz pint glass.
Appearance: Nice 2 finger head with excellent longevity. The beer had a nice coppery medium brown color with excellent clarity. Little lacing, but good head retention.
Smell: smells like its a hop bomb. Great citrusy hops and grassy smells came through. Good amount of fresh fruit with some nice hoppy bread scents came through.
Taste: Very nice! Full and wonderful beer with a very complex., yet pin pointed flavor profiles. Immediately after swallowing you get a tremendous dose of mandarin orange juice comming through. Its really amazing how much its aftertaste is like mandarin oranges in the can. Moderately strong hops but definately not over done.
Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation. Great viscosity and very nice texture. Its similar to a Bass ale on the mouthfeel, but a little bit fuller and thicker.
Drinkability: Its very very powerful on the taste factor. This beer needs some food with it for sure if you are going to session this beer. Its got moderate abv so you can have a couple of these bad boys but its a diverse and complex beer that deserves to be savored and appreciated.
Serving type: on-tap

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
