"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!

distinctive taste but could be a bit more lively on the tongue. A nice colour and keeps the head all the way down. Not offensive but was hoping for more from the triple hops

campbega (94) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
An OK beer but disappointed that the actual flavours didn’t match the triple-hopped hype. Nice citrus nose and smooth finish but would be better with more bitterness.

500ml bottle from supermarket. Clear golden beer with white head that disappeared quickly. A good English bitter, but not a great one.

mikkos (298) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Looks like a lager, aroma is stingy grassy hops, cannabis-like. Taste is again stingy grassy hops and grainy malts. High co2. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikkopen (934) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
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.
