Pours a golden hazy golour with a small foamy head. Aroma of citrus, sweat, some soap and mild caramel. Flavour of sweet caramel, floral hops, citrus, sweat again, mango, burnt bread, grass and some rubber. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
en aroma lupulo y mas lupulo. muy cítrica (será por eso que el lupulo usado se llama Citra...). en sabor muy lupulada (otra vez) amarga y seca, lo que unido a su poco cuerpo la convierte en una cerveza de sesión excelente.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD before Aug 2013. Poured slowly into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 10 Jul 2013, so just in date!
No sediment appeared to leave the bottle: golden, hazy body with a huge foaming snow white crown even though I poured carefully. Carbonisation bubbles could be seen rising to replenish any dying pieces of head. In fact the head appeared to grow as I drank the beer!
Just too citrusy for me: I’ve stated many times how I’m fed up with the wave of golden beers and lemon flavours the UK brewers seem to be producing at the moment: this typifies that style. I also know droves of people who love them and this would have some jumping for joy.
Without a doubt well made and refreshing: but it is not what I wanted!

Medium white head. Hazy deep yellow body. Wooden gooseberry aroma with spicy floral notes. Dry-sweet strawy gooseberry taste with spicy floral fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel.
