500ml bottle from somewhere online, I forget, it’s been a long day. Clear golden orange pour, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. bit too fizzy actually. Orange, apricot and cream on the nose. Light caramel sweet and good hop bitter taste. Quite rich for such a (relatively) low ABV. Sweet finish. OK.

mR_fr0g (8047) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle at home from beer hawk. Golden / light orange coloured pour with a lively frothy head. Effervescent. Aroma is pils grains, citrus / floral hop notes with light lemon soapy. Later a little toasted butterscotch note develops. Flavour is composed of caramel biscuit grains, light toasted grains, spicy citrus, berry, grainy. Light belgian yeast character. Palate is grainy, highish carbonation. Assertive clean bitterness. Bit of a weird one.

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of Meyer lemon, light note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Basically a richer version of the Golden, but while the aroma is attractive it’s pretty quiet. Wonderful balance in the mouth, neither too sweet or too dry for its size, very clean and flavorful. As enjoyable as the Golden, but the Native Storm is the clear winner among the three.
