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!

Aroma of lightstruck and grassy hops, some dusty notes too, a hint of toffee. The flavour is fairly refreshing and tolerably well hopped, on a buttery background with a hint of toffee again.

Clear light orange, darker yellow with pure white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is quite unique, hoppy, some yeast. Taste is also unique, bitter but in a different way, have to get used to this beer. Dry aftertaste. (Moscow 201302)

Bright clear gold - amber beer, tiny white head. Crisp palate. Fresh lagerish malt. Reasonable hops - trace of orange. Quite a carbonated sting in the finish. Fairly malty aftertaste. Mild bitter linger. Not bad, pretty drinkable.

Beerheart65 (957) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2012
Light amber with one finger head. Hoppy aroma has citrus mixed with exotic fruits, bit caramel malting. Nicely round bit oily feel, medium body, quite soft carbonation but not flat, bitterness balances sweetness, finish is bitter and fruity, taste has more evident malting that is nuanced also nicely: nuts, bread, caramel. Bit butter here also and slight spicyness. Nice and balanced, good flavors.
