COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

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.

Cask @ Gallows bird, real ale festival. Clear golden, thin head. Looking great. Lovely hoppy grapefruity aroma, some herbal notes. Flavor has fruity hoppyness, very bitter, grapefruit. Wow. This. Is. Good.

Tsekouratos (443) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - MAR 25, 2015
330 ml from Beer-shop.gr, Athens Greece. Golden yellow color, clear, with a thin white head. Nose is mildly sweet with malts and grains. Taste is malty and floral, with some herbal notes. Like a pilsner with some hops. Aftertaste is light and mildly bittersweet. Light body with low carbonation. Not a good Buxton beer.

TedE (300) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2015
Pint on tap at Euston Tap. Unusual nose, sweet malt plus ?. Flat golden beer with thin lasting head. Strong chalky bitter taste followed by even more bitterness. Finish is piney and........bitter. Nice.

visionthing (3236) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2015
33cl bottle from SIP veini- ja õllepood, Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a moderate and bubbely white head. Fruity aroma dominated by citrus with notes of sour berries, pale malt and hints of herbs. Moderate sweet and quite flavourful for a low ABV beer. Finishes with a nice bitterness. Tasty and sessionable.

Sorprendentemente sabrosa para sus tres grados, ligera y seca, refrescante en su amargor limpio y herbal.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2015
Very classic golden colour. Nose is nice with herbal hints. Taste is good for a simple pale ale. Very light and refreshing but nothing great I’m afraid.

MichaelAwesome (5014) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2015
Quite a simple one. Some hay with a touch of grass and spruce. Non-spectacular piwo with decent drinkability. Nothing adorable about that one.

McTapps (5014) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. The beer has got a light hazy yellow colour with an airy head and medium body. Aroma of bitterness and hops. Taste of bitter hops, spruce, bread, flowers. Dry-bitter and floral finish. Had higher expectations.
