NOTE: The recipe for this beer changed significantly in 2011.

A light, refreshing, hoppy pale ale. A showcase for the incredibly aromatic North American hop – Citra. It has a lovely citrus aroma, with juicy fruit flavours in the mouth. Medium bitterness.

DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Max. Yellow-golden. Nice fruity and floral hops aroma. Dry flavor with graininess, and bitterish fruity and slightly floral hops. Rather light-bodied. Nice and refreshing.

Bottle. Golden beer with a good head. The aroma is dry and hopped with yeasty notes, and the flavour is much the same with plenty of dryness and hops. Overall a nice golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

abirres (69) - Salamanca, SPAIN - JUL 2, 2016
Color dorado limpio, apenas opacidad, espuma generosa de retención media. Aroma a lúpulos americanos cítricos y resinosos. Sabor de entrada a frutas cítricas dejando paso a los resinosos. Se hace cansina. Amargor medio.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Pierre; BB 31.12.2016. Dorée, léger trouble et voile, col fin blanc. Arôme au nez fleuri, houblonné, fruité citronné, Citraesque. Palais est malté, pils et pâle, houblonné agrumes, grains au fini, vert, fleuri, sec et herbacé avec une pointe de terreux. Pour avoir dégusté la Siren Half Mast avant, je trouve cette version de Buxton plus centrée sur un malt pils, qui offre un fini plus terreux.
