A golden, straw coloured bitter, brewed with Cascade hops adding a flinty, grapefruit aroma that is deliciously refreshing.

The youtube on this from the brewery says it uses Pale, Crystal and Wheat malts and cascade hops. It’s the wheat I think that gives the beer such a good head retention and mouthfeel. Reminded me very much of B1 which is surprising as this used Northern Brewer and Golding. Yellow Hammer has one plenty of awards and you can taste why!

TBone (14271) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 22, 2014
Bottle 500ml (K-Kamppi)
Golden color, some hazyness, good off-white head, lace. Aroma is grainy, light hops. Light to medium-bodied, reasonably robust for this ABV. Flavor is grainy, bready, some citrus from Cascade. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Typical grainy organic malt flavors ruin a bit of fruityness of Cascade hops.

0.5 Bottle from Pulkovsky Universam, St Petersburg. Bags of flavour for a 4.0% brew. Lovely and refreshing with lots of citrus. Finish is a lovely tart grapefruit but then goes quite metallic at the very end. Not enough to spoil it though, will definitely drink again.

ERB92 (533) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2014
Toffee,grains, fruits and citrus in the aroma. Golden with a off white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter finish. Overall a really nice one. Beautiful fruity aroma and a quite bitter flavour, but still nicely balanced.

djoeye (2549) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2014
White half finger head, bubbles in centre, some bubbly lacings. Deep golden body. Scents: Resin, yellow apple, sweet fruity malts. Taste: Hops, spruce, transfers to sweet malts, fruity stuff, not much dark fruits in this year’s version however. Mild n fresh to palate. End: Fruits, slightly dry, caramel malts, some mild fruity spices, some bitter. Overall tasty n mild. (Enjoyed a 500 ml brown bottle b@Kjeller 5 Tromsø before a PolishRateMeet)

freretoc (1182) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 14, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 50cl, une jolie couleur avec bien de la mousse. Une bière avec peu de nez sinon le houblon. En bouche elle est très citronnée une belle tuerie bien en longueur

Lonick (790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Pours golden and clear. Citrus fruits on the nose, ever so slightly sweet on first tasting but then a little spicy-ness comes into it,a light golden ale with a slight IPA twist to it.
