COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

MoritzF (8563) - Bochum, - JUN 30, 2013
(bottle) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal, slightly grassy and subtle fruity hoppy aroma with a slightly buttery malty background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Buttery and doughy malt upfront with mainly herbal and grassy hops; dry and moderately bitter finish with a lasting herbal and grassy hoppy aftertaste. Not bad but I missed the fruit character. 29.VI.13

Drack denna under 2014 hurlingfinal i Dublin. Första ölen som inte var på tapp! Men den var inget speciellt.

Bottle in Limerick, Ireland. Decent citrus hop aromas off this pale fizzy pour. Flavor was ok. Still hoppy but a bit overly bitter on the finish.

From a bottle purchased in Dubiln and consumed at our place in Carrickshock, Ireland. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head and good lacing. Nose of floral and citrus hops. Medium body. Nice smooth mouth feel. Flavor is a mix of the those floral and citrus hops. Finish is citrus and lightly bitter. Good.
