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.

MarkoNm (2381) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 6, 2015
Pours almost clear golden color, topped with a nice white frothy head. Mild fruity aroma, some flowery notes and a hint of elderflower. Taste is slightly sweet with some grassy hops to it, very mild bitterness in the finish and a bit watery. Drinkable, not bad.

BrunoSanchez (189) - Fermo, ITALY - MAY 6, 2015
Golden ale di stampo inglese. Colore oro con scarsa schiuma bianca. Al naso fruttata e floreale. In bocca corpo medio. Bilanciata bene. Sapore troppo fruttato a mio parere. Lungo finale nel palato.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle at home in London - sourced from an online shop. Pours mostly clear gold with a creamy white head. The nosr has some aged hay, biscuits, lemon. Light-medium sweet flavor with low bitterness, some ripe, lightly dried citrus fruits, a bit of hay, grains. Light bodied with ine to average carbonation. Some further grainy pale malts to finish, biscuits, rindy lemon. Perhaps not super fresh but still OK.

AulusAgerius (5) - - AUG 26, 2014 does not count
Nice head and limpid appearance, grapefruit aroma with a far orange note, the taste reminds a lot some less strong stout/porter beers, hop and alcohol, bitter palate escalating quickly. Neither bad not good in my opinion, but enjoyable if you aren?t looking for elaborate tastes.
