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!

stevoj (2070) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2013
Beautiful lemony citrus aroma. Slightly hazy darker golden in color with soapy skin of a head.. Taste is hops and malt. Finish is dry and slightly chalky. Wonderful aroma on a very drinkable bitter.

Vaiz (3324) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, foamy white head. Aroma of cats piss, grains, English hops, some spices and quite crispy. Flavor is slightly bitter, a bit chemical, watery, but still strangely well drinkable.

Swaroga (1305) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2013
50cl bottle. Yellow golden with small white and almost non-existing head. Nose : skunky and citrusy aromas with notes of bread and hay. Sip : water like density with good carbonation. Sparkling and foamy texture while swallowing. Dry notes of hay and pale malts. Corn. Citrus dry. It's ending with sour and bitter notes. Bitterness is delicate. The beer is a thirst quencher. Nothing special.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear light golden colour, small white head and a fair bit of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and a little bit of toffee. A strange flavour, somewhat malty with hops, caramel and hints of spice. Not great on the palate.

mike_77 (3028) - NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2013
Clear golden blond, light carbonation. The hops in the aroma are a bit skunky. Flavour is rather muted at first. There’s a light citrus edge and some bready malt just prior to the medium bitter finish.

BitchPls (542) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2013
Clear, see through yellow/orange beer with a white head. Some toffee, caramel, bread, roasted coffee (like in the air around a coffee factory) and citrus notes on the nose. Smells very nice. The body is light and watery. Mouth feel is soft and round. The hops is about the same quality as in a normal pils. A bit buttery. Some caramel. Slight grassy bitterness. The aroma promised something a lot better and more interesting. This one’s rather dull disappointingly.

Weefannybaws (93) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours a lovely light amber. Malty toffee on the nose, with hints of curry. Caramel overtones on the palate.

cthistle (6) - SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2013 does not count
Pours light amber with white head. Caramel malty aroma with similar tastes. Good balance between hops and malts

SarkyNorthener (1788) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with small head and decent lacing. Aroma is a little grassy and lemon hops. Taste is of mild citrus hops, pale lager malts, grain and floral notes. Too carbonated for my liking. Drinkable but uninteresting.

gunnar (5219) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2013
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear straw coloured with no head at al. Aroma of light struck hops, far from delicious. Taste is mild with a strange artificial bitterness.
