COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ALLOVATE (2475) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2012
Cool not cold back in August 2011.
From the bottle. Pour is bright; a medium gold and lager like for carbonation with a soppy, flaccid white crown that manages good legs. Tinny, floral and piney nose with a sulphury, buttery edge that taints it but doesn’t add to the flavour. Dull mouthfeel but oddly pulls off something unbeknown. Light, powdery, grainy and very piney to the point of being reminiscent too sucking on toothpicks. Grassy, herbal hops dominate otherwise, dry the palate out, add emphasis to the drawing finish. The pine is all I got in the aftertaste. Some straw comes through, maybe a little citrus, but it’s straight ball with this one yet it works. I actually managed a few pints, running out was the hardest thing, could go more! (50cL, BB 04/09/11, Tesco Exmouth, Devon)

Light, slightly sweet smell. Crisp, hoppy taste with a malty finish. Somewhere between an IPA and a bitter... makes a nice change from generic hop-overload IPAs. Will be keeping a few of these around in my collection at any one time.

Nice golden colour with medium head. A fair amount of carbonation. Hops and citrus aromas. Nice citrusy flavour. Dry and refreshing.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2011
A rating from an old notebook. Bottle. Hazy gold with a tiny white head. A hoppy beer with a surprisingly bitter finish. Moreish.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2011
Bottle. The aroma is lovely and spicy. A nice fresh sweet noble hop character and some pale malt. A bit of light fruit sweetness. A bit of crackery character. Nice stuff.

Gyllenne färg med kritvitt skum. Ganska stram med humletoner åt citrushållet och lite smörkola i smaken.

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. From notes. Golden with a white head. Quite sweet malt, toffee, citrus and grass. Nothing special.

larsga (6323) - 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.
