3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour wearing an initial white head that rapidly diminishes. Brightly, strongly hopped ale trying to live up to its name. Very dry, floral, orangey and even grapefruity aromas. The light grassiness feels more English already, so does the growing sunflower seed and sesame, cerealic sweet maltiness that we find in mouth. Mostly an aromatic hop bill. Well-balanced and with a grip. Light-bodied, fitting carbonation.
