3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium, light-yellow head over golden grain-coloured beer. Hot, sweetish malts, honey and – ivy? honeysuckle? Something green and climbing. Rather aggressive greenery taste, nearly insectoid, touch of caramel, <i>lunaria</i>. Every new sip gives 1’ of hopflavour, but bitterness comes in the finish. Bit unbalanced, wobbly – “crisp”. Spritzy MF, CO²-tuned; rather light body, light slickness. Not bad, nowhere special. Second pint will drink itself away quickly, I suppose. <i> Big thanks to Darren! </i>

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with a big very white head. Complex hoppy nose- citrus is the main impression, grapefruit, lime and oranges. Malty flavours initially, countered by good bitterness.Citrus prevails also in the mouth. Dry finish. Quite fluffy texture. Way above average golden ale.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very appetizing beer in the glass and appropriately named ’Sunburst’ because of the strong golden appearance. However, although it was smooth and drinkable, I found it a little thin of flavor. The finish was completely unremarkable. A very ho-hum beer. Next.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Begins with a nice garden hop bouquet mellowed by slight fruit tones and finishes with a slight bitter tone. Overall, its pretty well balanced with the mix of hops stealing the show. I love those cascades.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a clean golden body with a really tall and ultra creamy, milky, rocky pure starch white head and awesome lacing. The aroma is pineapple and candied fruit hop medley. The flavor is candied fruit with pineapple and papaya and flowers. Some strange malt base or hop additions in this one. Perhaps a bit of butterscotch. The palate is creamy and bitter.
