0,5 flaske delt med Steve og håndimportør Ovesen: klar, gylden med hvitt filmskum. Deilig aroma av mandaring og aprikos. Forfriskende, lett sommerøl med middel munnfylde - lett å helle over drøvelen.

Cimbasso (244) - - AUG 17, 2014
A golden summer ale with a loose white head and an zesty orange aroma. A rich golden colour and clear appearance. It has a clean hoppy dryness with a good bitter finish, very much in the English tradition of a Golden Ale. Nicely balanced, and light and citrussy, this ale is perfect for summer drinking as it is refreshing and (at 4.5%) not too strong.
