Cask: Status uncertain. Cold filtered in bottles.
A great golden beer with a fresh citrus, hoppy aroma. This wonderful wholesome organic ale has a dry and bitter finish which brings you right back to earth.

thewolf (10786) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Beermerchants.com.
Pours clear dark golden with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has butterscotch, malts, light sweetness. Low carbonation, a tad thin but with good dryness. Flavour maintains a fair deal of butterscotch, sweetness, maltiness, light herbal liqourice and a fine floral bitterness. Too bad about the butter - would otherwise have been nice.

larsga (5967) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2011
Medium very white head. Slightly hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Earthy mineraly herbal aroma with vaguely fruity notes. Dry-sweetish mineraly resiny strawy taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish honey grapes and spice aftertaste with herbal strawy notes. Nice, well balanced, and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, beermerchants.com.)

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011
50cL bottle. pours light yellow-gold. Smells of light citrus and hops. Tastes is rather light and delicate -- notes of citrus, pine, and hops -- well balanced and somewhat lethargic, flavor is not in-your-face. Very drinkable. Light and somewhat subtle.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2011
500ml bottle. Fine & fading fizzy white head; clear, light golden body with moderate surface carbonation. Tangy orange and lemon green hop overall character wth some light, dry graininess on the tongue. Light to medium body and medium carbonation with a short, dry & mild bitterness. Lingering dry tangy fruitiness.

Die_Kapusta (190) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2010
Clear bright yellow pour. White head. Aroma is sirup, bread and butterscotch. Taste is a bit generic brittish with both sweet and bitter flavour. Thin body. Dry finish. One of the better organic beers though.

Pyobon (862) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2010
Bottle. Clear pale golden / straw with decent white head. Aroma started off with honey and vegetable notes and towards the end had hot butter or butterscotch. Thin body and coarse fizzy carbonation. Flavour has bread with some indeterminate sweet and sour flavours and a little bitterness in the finish. OK but not terribly special.

gunnar (4871) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours clear golden with a weak supported white head. Aroma of weak citric hops. Taste is slightly on the bitter side with good defined grassy hops, but there is a moderate taste of butterscoth present here, spoiling this beer for me.

BeerBaboon (1485) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Not much head at all. Golden brown colour. Toffee and fruit aromas. The scent of toffee is escpecially strong. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. A little bit of herbs there. Some maltyness and bitterness too.
