"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!

(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, 20121103) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, fruitiness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A good example of an English bitter.

mt_hall (147) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottled. A clear amber-gold with a medium-sized off-white head. A very powerful lime aroma is noticeable as soon as this beer is poured - it’s balanced with some earthly malt aromas. Crisp and refreshing in the mouth, with a citrus bite and a dry middle and finish.

the aroma is malty, herbal and hoppy with some hints of citrus... the taste is well-balanced, malty and fruity with shades of grapefruit, herbs and spices... dry and bitter aftertaste...

Clean golden beer with a nice hoppy aroma. A smooth bitter taste stays on the end which invites another drink.

snowdog140 (56) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Very hoppy in its aroma and a suitably orange appearance to match. Taste again is predominantly of hops and that is no bad thing, certainly not one of the world’s top beers but a perfectly drinkable brew.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pale golden pour. The nose is a little bit spicy and fruity. Clean MO malt base and a bit of fruity yeast. Pretty nice, straightforward golden ale. A bit of astringent bitterness.

Flaske 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune på Nerstranda 10 Des. 14. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum. Veldig god ferskenaroma. God smak av tørket frukt. Plommer. Hint av parfyme. Avslutter svakt syrlig.

Rune (8920) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by Finn at a session at his place. Pours a bright golden coloured body under a pearl white head, slowly diminishing. Spare lacing. Aroma is mild caramel and leafy hops. Likewise, the taste character is made up by a smooth mix of brown malts and leafy hops. Bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Fine partner to our meat (Tromsø 10.12.2014).
