Sunburst is brewed using floor malted Maris Otter barley and a blend of Cascade, styrian and Challenger hops. The result is a refreshing crisp beer of considerable depth with a fine hoppy aroma.

22 Sept 2010, bottle. pale yellow colour, faintly hazy w/ steady bubbles. citrus hops and malt on nose, nicely balanced. absolutely stunning session beer! med body and not as fizzy as i expected. more hops than i expected from nose but still just enough to know they are there. very balanced. slightly malty and slightly hoppy. very refreshing.

50 cl bottle thanks to ekstedt! He got if from Cracked Kettle.
BB date pretty much impossible to get due to black on black print and glue from sticker.
Sampled on April 16, 2011
Clear golden color, very low/small white head. Sweet, red berries, sirup, massive honey, butter scent. Sweet, stale, bread, light touch of caramel, coconut flakes taste. Fairly low, though smooth, mouthfeel, low co2 feeling. Dryish bitterness that finishes harsh and with hints of glue.
Didn’t really care much for this one, it’s not a first choise to get again.

planky84 (2875) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle from the Bitter End, Bromley. Bright golden pour with a white head. Grapefruit, pear, peach, mango and a little caramel aroma. Quite fruity. Fruity hop laden flavours with a bit of a sharp citrus bite. Nice fruity finish. Refreshing.

LordDrachen (116) - reggio emilia, ITALY - DEC 21, 2010
Great golden ale. Quite interesting and very tasty for a so drinkable style. Light orange/amber colored with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity dominant (grapefruit from Cascade i guess, pineapple, peaches) with typical butter-like hint of english styles ale. Moderate sweetness and strong bitter end. Light carbonation, light body. I really liked it.

Christian (12929) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2010
First Snowfall of the Season tasting in Odense. Pale golden with a small white head. Malty aroma with some citrus hops. Citrus and herbal flavour with some dusty malt. Easy to taste that this could be so much better on cask...
