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 (8676) - 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

Ambro206 (215) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Una birra sufficiente. Bionda scarica cn schiuma normale. Aroma leggermente erbaceo, maltato quasi assente. Dry hopping non molto efficace. In bocca č onesta, bilanciata, ben poco appassionante.
