NOTE: The recipe ofr this beer changted 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.

Kauge (179) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2014
33 cl bottle from a Selver in Tallinn (€ 2,89). Pours a very hazy, pale golden with a small, off-white head and some lacing. Nose is a display of Citra, it’s succulent, citrusy, fresh and warming, but... terribly weak - and I mean all the times I’ve had this... Taste is better with considerable bitterness and some sweetness to balance it, it’s citrusy and fruity, fresh and juicy. Body and carbonation medium, palate and finish somewhat dry. It’s very much ok - save the nose - but I definitely prefer Buxton’s Moor Top to this.

Draught @ Lortica, Bologna. Clear yellow beer with a thick white head. A strongly hopped, fuity golden ale with a quite light body. Very refreshing and enjoyable!

@ Man in the moon 14-9-20: helt ok med en lite syrlig touch. Helt ok balans mellan humle och malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

gegwilson (1269) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from the Lion’s Den in Yarm. Pours golden with a white head that diminishes quite quickly to a light layer of froth. Starts juicy with citrus before a fairly bitter finish with some quite soapy notes. After a while the soapiness seems to fade and it improves with more citrus coming through.

Osprey87 (1797) - WALES - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle from Eebria. Golden orange, slightly sparkling, hazy, small white head. Aroma is light lemon, maybe a touch of vinegar. Body is medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is light and watery up front, some thin citrus, late caramel sweetness with a musty bitterness in the finish.
