Bevuta sia alla spina che in bottiglia. Golden ale, dal colore chiaro; il sapore fruttato e un pò citrico. Piacevolmente secca e amare. molto dissetante, una di quelle birre che non smetteresti mai di bere, grazie anche ai suoi 4,1%. Promossa

Golden ale perfectly in style: low-medium body; medium bitterness (about on 35 IBU); surely hop-oriented, it has aromas mainly of exotic fruits and slightly citric but with a strong herbaceous and earthy base on a dry and clean finish. The low alcohol content (4.1%) makes it pleasant and invigorating without any collateral effects. The balance between the flavors makes the palate pleased but letting you slightly unsatisfied, just a little bit, which is a virtue: not cloying, not too watery. Taken when I was about to collapse from the heat, I am not exaggerating when I say it brought me back to life. Perfect for your seaside holidays as to the mountains. Highly recommended to all. Golden ale perfettamente in stile: corpo medio-basso senza per questo essere watery; amara il giusto (ad occhio sui 35 IBU); ovviamente hop-oriented con aromi prevalentemente di frutta esotica e leggermente citrici ma con una decisa base erbacea ed earthy su un finale secco e pulito. Il basso contenuto alcolico (4,1%) la rende piacevole e corroborante senza affatto picchiare in testa e l’azzeccatissimo equilibrio tra i sapori appaga il palato pur facendotene desiderare un altro po’, ma giusto un pochetto, il che, a mio avviso, è un pregio: non come alcune birre stucchevoli, tipicamente nordeuropee, che scocciano al secondo sorso, non come altre che scorrono nel gargarozzo senza lasciare nulla di sé neanche dopo due secchiate. Presa ad ora di pranzo in un momento in cui stavo per collassare dal caldo, non esagero quando dico che m’ha riportato in vita. Perfetta tanto al mare quanto in montagna. Consigliatissima a tutti.

Draught. Light hazy light golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of citrus, grain, floral hops, light earth, light bread and grapefruit. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of citrus, light pine, fresh hops and light grain. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really nicely drinkable and hoppy.

4.1%ABV. Blond Ale. Tapped out at 6ºSRM. Light gold and slightly hazy. Looked inviting when it formed a lightly opaque frost on the glass. No head out of the tap with some large foamy bubbles in a thin white head. Nose was bold and abrasively full of pine, yellow grapefruit and citrus. Mouthfeel was full of aggressive carbonation layered nicely over a big-boned skeleton of good quality pale malts. Bitter hop balanced with not just any hops, but Buxton axe edge bitter hops. Nice....but not enough to make the favorites list. Good Job, Buxton!

Not bad. Lightly bitter, medium bodied and a little carbonated. Grassy, piney, citrusy aroma from the hops.
