Pub clip claimed it was a 'West Yorkshire' Beyond the Pale on 28 May 2013 at The Fighting Cocks, Stottesdon in Shropshire.

My hand-pulled pint was a clear golden colour with a thin but full and lasting white head.

Citrusy hops fill the nose and mouth, this is all hops with only a mild malt content to help balance the flavours. Dry finish with a mini floral feel below the citrus front.

Refreshing and almost interesting.

On cask at The Three Judges in Glasgow, June 2009

Pours a bright golden yellow with a creamy, thick head and good lacing

The aroma was lightly hoppy and very fruity. Malt was a classic buttery bread smell

Taste began very fruity, sweet ripe fruits including apples, bananas, some citrus as well. Malt was like cookie dough, toasted brown bread.

Medium bodied and had a very soft carbonation

NERAX 04
Brilliant clear amber under low fluffy head. Fragrant hops with a bit of a funky smell in there. While generally crisp, there's some flavors I don't like that keep cropping up: a bit of metal, maybe even a hair medicinal.
Not sure about this.

Served @ NERAX 2004 in a pint a glass.

Very pale hue with some faint haze and a thick lacing. Very through fruity with citric aroma and flavor, lingering dusty malt. Good balance between the malt and hops. Nutty yeast and a bit of juicy fruitiness in the middle. Touch of mineral and sulfur in the slowly drying finish. Easily quaffable and a tasty start to this years NERAX adventure.
