Filtered and carbonated bottle.
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.

Nothing particularly exciting about this one. It does go down pretty easily but it’s lacking any strength in the flavour. The malt and hops are pretty dull.

Clear golden beer with a few bubbles and a frothy head. Smells of hop and slight citrus. Flavour isn’t particularly strong of anything really. The hop is there still with a zesty tang to it but there’s not a lot else going on. The finish is quite dry and pleasant though.

Bottle from Corks of Cotham. A pleasant golden ale. Smooth, well-balanced between sweet malt and fresh hops, aclean and well-rounded. Not my favourite style, but this is a good example of it.

RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle, Booths, Penrith. Sweet malty aromas, quite an earthy taste, with hops coming in very late. Strangely reminiscent of mass produced tinned lager initially, but his gives to a far more enjoyable sherbet and peppery flavour, with a continental feel to it late on. Very summery, very drinkable.

sic1314 (3048) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2013
Poured straw with a frothy, rapidly disappearing head. Aroma of citrus and restrained floral hops. Medium creamy body, flavour of subdued caramel malt and slightly sweet citrus hops.

Hoppy floral and citrus aroma also bread. Taste grapefuit citrus, bit of malty backing. Good for in the sun!

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2013
Bottle, 50 cl. Light hazy golden with a small white head. Smooth toffee and fruity, floral hops in the nose. Sweet, light bitter floral falvor, light citrus, light herbal, light body. A little to much toffee for my palate to be really crisp.
