COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It delivers a refreshing crisp smack around the gills. It pours a pale golden colour and the malty sweetness is well balanced by the Chinook and Centennial hops. Goes well with fish, chicken or anything off the barbeque

TheJestersBeer (2039) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, medium straw, with a white head. Citrusy aromas, hops, malt, but there’s also a distinct sour note. Off-dry, light bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. Citrus and hops on the palate, quite sour, citrus, apples, wheat. A growing sweetness lingers in the finish, leaving the palate rather cloyed. (Infected?) (2012-03-01)

Bottle. The beer has a nice smell of hops, light fruity and a little bit sweet. The head is small, white and milky, the body is pale yellow. It has a taste of citrus, light bitter finish. The body is light to medium strong, a little bit oily and cremay with a flat carbonation.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle, thanks Stephanos! Orange amber pour, thick bubbly head eventually fades with good lacing. Soft pithy orange and lemon on the nose. Somewhat juicy front, hint of caramel sweetness, lemony bitterness, hint of bready malt. Not bad at all.

ruigo (1061) - PORTUGAL - MAR 11, 2014
33cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear golden colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, caramel and lightly spicy. Average to soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is really bitter at start with some sweet notes and a long bitter and dry finish. Overall, a nice beer but with not much of a taste and a bit unbalanced. I was expecting more.
