COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised. Seasonal - Spring.
"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!

500 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow colour, white head. Honey-sweetish aroma of malt and floral hops, notes of citrus. The flavour is also rather sweet, malty, with notes of lemon and a mildly bitter, aromatic finish. A drinkable bitter, nothing more, nothing less.

Copper hazy, white head. Smells of bread, butterscotch, earthy hops and caramel. Moderat sweet, bready, some fruityness, moderate bitter, earthy. Nothing special really

Blond color. It has some aroma of cereals. It’s lowly carbonated, with some cereals flavor, low bitterness; flat in all ways. Simple.

Shared this bottle @ benzai. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Smells marijuana, caramel, sweet, (Dutch: hopjes). Tastes watery, some caramel.. Bizarre sidetaste.. A mix between mushrooms and the stem of a marijuana bud. Also quite bitter. Thin body, soft carbo.
