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!

(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.

A reasonable middling beer. Tangy and bite up front, crisp and quenching, but not an aroma to savour or write home about. reasonable body but this isn’t a full beer, and there isn’t much length in the taste. But it did the trick and for that it’s worth a go.

Ei niinkään ihmeiden olut. Kaunis kyllä, mutta maku melkoisen hirveä. Pistävä ja tunkkainen. Maratonjumiin.
