A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

blackisle (973) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle 33cl (brown label). Clear pale golden color, small foamy white head, stays for a while, fair lacing; strong citrus nose, grapefruit, lemon; fresh bitttersweet taste (more bitter than sweet); light to medium body, never watery, soft carbonation; crisp light bitter finish. Good balance, you don’t notice the low ABV. Really good.

fairwater (137) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask @Greyfriar. Pale, clear, gold. Piney. In a lavatory block sense, but not really unpleasantly. Bit thin, bitterness that lingers, then departs. I would order it again, but not here, today, when Sound Wave is available.

Nice blonde beer with a bit of hoppy citrous flavor. Easy drinking. Easy to drink it again and again :-)
