Bottled (4.5%) at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy pale golden, small head. Fresh aroma of vanilla and citrus. Light bodied and with fresh citric hops. Lightly yeasty with notes of minerals. Like spritzy custard with a bitter edge.

Bottle. Plale golden with a small white head. Aromas are toasty with loads of citrus. Some bitterness with resinous hops. Flavours are spritzy, fresh lemon wth some grapefruit bitterness following. Some toasty , caramel malts are lurking but this is mostly a citrus brew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled.More like a lager than a golden ale this was superb.A wonderful long lasing citrus taste dominates.This is perfectly balanced with gentle traces of bitterness. What a find-highly recommended.

Bottle. Pale yellow. Big aroma of Saaz hops. Nice hoppy flavour, citrus and slightly floral. Also a hint of sweet flavour, something like vanilla?
Nice golden ale, though not my favourite I will probably have this one again.
