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.

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.

Idiosynkrasie (4561) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Floral hoppy aroma, slightly perfumed, herbal, a fruity touch of gooseberry, biscuity malty basis. Taste is slightly sweet, biscuity malty, mildly bitter hoppy overtones, minimally herbal, floral and mineral, a touch of lemon and gooseberry. Nice.

Leighton (13270) - 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.

ciaranc (1097) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 18, 2014
500 ml bottle from Redmonds. Really clear, quite pale gold with a white head which doesn’t last. Grain in the aroma, some toffee and a yeasty note. Flavour is light and dry, finishes with some toffee sweetness. A touch watery maybe. Light carbonation, light mouthfeel. Nice enough session beer but there are more flavoursome beers work a lower ABV
