Two fingers of head, that held nicely. Opaque, dark straw colored body.
Big lemon zest smell, some barnyard (wet grain) and honey too.
A stubborn lemon bitterness up front... refuses to cease. A bit of malt sweetness comes through. Long finish with the bitter.
Crisp and medium body. Fairly low carbonation.
An enjoyable ale with a big helping of hops.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight off-white head. Soft grapefruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is grapefruit and floral. Some malt background. It’s definitely on the bitter side. Just a lot different from US ales. Which in this case seems to be a good thing.

Relatively strong fruity aroma, but not as strong as other celt ales. Strong bitter taste, with a lasting citrus hops taste. Full mouth feel. Generally a refreshing ale without too much fuss.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 500 ml bottle. Clear darkish amber with a thin white collar and moderate carbonation. Aromas of malt, nuts and floral notes. Taste is a well rounded combination of raisins, plums and a touch of spice with a decent hop bitterness. Full mouth feel with a solid malt backing. Enjoyable beer with nice complexity.

Bottle. Nice design. Deep golden body with a beautiful rocky head. Aroma has piney hops. Nice and rich mouthfeel with big bitterness (approaching IPA territoty). Finish is also quite malty and rich with grapefruity hops. Nice but it’s more like an IPA, really.

Angenehm süßlich, malzig-fruchtig, etwas dickflüssig, aber sehr süffig. Floral-mild. Leckeres Bier.
