COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg, bottle.
Blending a classic US hop with a new variety of German hop, we’ve created a golden-coloured ale with a balanced bitterness, rich malt character and sweet, jammy hop flavours.

Aroma: floral hops, some citrus fruit. Appearance: slightly hazy dark gold, medium to big frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: light bitters continue, some grassy hops coming up, notes of bread malt. Overall: very decent Golden Ale, liking the hoppy aroma and palate. Bottle from BottleDog Kings Cross, Holborn.

Idiosynkrasie (3710) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Jelly biscuit hop aroma, slightly grainy background, some gooseberry, more citrusy Cascade upcoming with time. Taste is minimally tart, dry, hoppy, "green-ish" lemon-lime-’chlorophyllic’, a grainy-bready basis flashes up in the middle part, afterwards the hop reigns again, not untinged from bitter and chalky hints. Neither in colour nor in taste on level with my expectations.
