COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

Clean amber color. Nice aroma of hops, quite English styled; there are some fruits. Dry mouthfeel, dry caramel and toffee flavor, but there is also an interesting touch of orange cookies. Correct bitterness. Good thirst quencher. It’s a complete different brew from years ago.

Cloudy orange-amber color. As promised, the aroma is very Belgian. Medium body, some malt flavor, good bitterness level, big yeast footprint, a bit fruity and astringent; not bad, but a bit too much homebrew style.
