Brewed with wheat and Munich malts, this golden-coloured beer has malt character to back up the great hop aroma. Notes of tropical fruit, oranges and tangerines and a clean bitterness.

Taster from BBN tom at launch, CBC although I must confess I’ve had the prototype for this. Colour is toasty golden amber, white head. Nose surprisingly is citrous sweet, tangerine, lemon, orange. Taste is also citrous sweet, tangerine and sherberty, with a bit of malty graininess. This is my kind of blonde beer, although half way to an APA.

33 cl bottle. Bottled on 03.03.2015. BBE 03.07.2015.
Pours hazy orange-brown color with a small head. Hops on the nose, orange, some malts too. Fruity flavor, bitter resinous hops, some caramel malts and hay. Decent but a bit stuffy.

jzi (29) - POLAND - APR 11, 2015
Piana: słaba i szybko opada do zera. Barwa: Pomarańczowa. Piwo mocno zmętnione. Aromat: żywica, cytrusy a przede wszystkim grapefruit. Smak: Lekko ściągająca goryczka, Wyraźnie wyczuwalne cytrusy. Piwo dość nisko wysycone, niczym się nie wyróżnia, nie zachwyca. Jest cytrus, jest goryczka i koniec emocji.

Keg at The Brew by Numbers Brewery Tap, Bermondsey. Hazy gold with white head. Fresh and clean flavours on a crisp malty body, fresh orange notes, skinny, zesty. Bitter and quite bold. Very pleasant.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Murky golden body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of lime, lemongrass and sugar. Flavour of chalky lemon, sugar and bread. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Light fizz. Tastes less punchy than the aroma suggests.
