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

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012
In bottle, thanks Gregor. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of musty hay, honey, caramel and grass. Upfront honey and biscuity malt flavours with a dry finish. Alcohol is quite present with mild carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. Just a little cloying with a yeasty, oaty linger.

Bottle. Appearance: Hazy orange, thick, proud snow white head. Aroma: Grassy hops, malty, grain, a little citrus, a little pear. Flavour: Bitter at first, quite a decent amount of hoppiness, good malty sweetness, pears again, a little light on the mouth feel but has a long enjoyable bitter finish.

hawthorne00 (2727) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pale amber with a white head. Aroma of oranges, peach and a little pine. Taste is much more grapefruity, with hay, peach and oranges. Quite dry at the end with firm bitterness. The hops don’t shine quite as much as they ought in the aroma, but it’s pretty good.

TheJestersBeer (2200) - 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)
