Hazy blonde, thin bubbly head. Fruity, fresh aroma with calamansi, lemon zest and a bit of musty yeastiness. Opens with an Aperol-esque bitterness, followed by brisk carbonation that brings yeastiness with it and a pale malt sweetness. Refreshing, a little bit like English golden bitter, but at APA strength.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig süß, leicht würzig. Geschmack leicht hefig, fruchtig malzig, Gewürze, blumig.

Old review from ’09. Thanks to Roman70 for sharing this brew This bottle has a year on it. Appears pale orangish/yellow. The first pour (My pour) was clear with a thick bone white head that falls slowly. The smell is Floral/ fruity hops, a little funk The taste - Light hops tingly light fruit flavors. A little musty tasting as well - maybe the age. Light body with active carbonation . A decent beer that I would think would taste better when fresh. Next time.

Refreshing pale ale. Beautiful light straw colour. We had this with gourmet pizza and it was a good match.

Poor is straw yellow with a loose bubble head that sticks round pleasantly. Has a pleasant bitterness with a subtle belgium yeast flavour coming through in the background.
Reminded me a lot of a duvel with a bigger bitterness and more flavour from the yeast.
For a 8% beverage the alcohol didn’t come through at all.
Was a brilliant beer to have with the spicy salami pizza at the time. 1st beer I’ve had served in a wine glass.

From a corked (plastic) and capped 75cl bottle with a BB date of 30/1/14.. Erupting foam from the bottle on opening that settles to a large dense white head above a pale yellow cloudy body. I get tangerines and pineapples plus mild herbs on the nose on top of a sweet grainy malt base. Flavours are similar to the nose with a moderately dry hop bitterness. Rather thin and watery mouthfeel for the ABV with a light-medium body. A sessionable and fruity pale ale but nothing outstanding.

Bottle at Ozone Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong. Pours cloudy light golden with a generous white head. Musty underground aroma with a hint of orange. Light body and crisp, clean bitterness. Light maltiness with the hops dominating in bitterness and a slight citrus finish.

Not much of an aroma, grassy, light sourness. taste is grass, hay, sour, light fruitiness, citrus. Palate is nice and carbonated. overall seems lacking in much substance. Flavor isn’t bad, but there’s no depth. a bit flat.

Birra chiara molto luppolata con schiuma bianca e persistente. Colore chiaro con riflessi ramati. Note di caramello e sentori erbacei.
Sapore equilibrato tra il caramello e l’amaro. Birra corposa. Carbonazione bassa. Discreta
