"Bound to satisfy".
Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added. Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!

Olut on kullan värinen ja muodostaa hieman valkoista vaahtoa. Näyttää lasissa kirkkaalta ja kauniisti poreilevalta. Tuoksu on sitruksisen hedelmäinen. Maultaan sitruksinen, katkera, keksinen ja maltainen. Keskihiilihappoinen. Ei niitä parhaita bittereitä, mutta ei ihan huonoinkaan.

500ml bottle (Black Door, Helsinki)
Slightly dull sweet caramelly malts, a little bit of english hopping, but has that weird Hall&Woodhouse fingerprint that’s hard to describe. A bit "processed". Typical english bottled bitter appearance, but as it’s a clear glass bottle I think it looks unprofessionally delivered to my glass. MIght explain some of the aroma too. Taste is an indistinct bitter and caramelly malt combo, a touch sharp as if it’s trying to be citrussy, but the hops are too old for that, or it’s lightstruck. Some mushroominess later too. A fairly full body, quite smooth, and with nice carbonation. The bitterness is quite sticky, and leaves a little tingle briefly, as well as some spicy nettles. Not a fan of new badger, but this is a fairly pleasant beer, in particular for a dead bottled beer.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2012
Bottled 500ml (K-Kamppi, BB 12/2012, alc. 4.4 %)
Clear bottle, blah ... Clear amber-golden color, small steady white head, lace. Citrus-fruity aroma. Light to medium bodied. Citrusy, almost grapefruity crispyness, then typical English nutty-caramel notes. Finish is just too empty, with higher gravity would have more power.

Bags of floral aroma, citrusy tones and lots of hops. Lacking some bitterness. Overall refreshing but not weak on taste.

dEnk (3806) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is english hops, quite flowery. Flavour is a medium strong bitterness with a fresh hop flavour, again mostly flowers. Some biscuit/bread in the finish. Allright.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2012
0.5L bottle from Tesco, Kennington, London. A bright golden body, with a cap of white foam on top. A whiff of metal up front, set off by a smell of grassy and light floral hops, and sweet-scented bakery. Body is light to medium full. Taste is quite sweet, with peppery caramel and malt drops. Spicy/earthy bittering hops. Slick texture. Modest bitterness in the finish.
