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.

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 (881) - 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

500ml bottle at home. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of hay and citrus. Orange bitter taste, light sweetness. Medium body & carbonation. Lingers a bit too long to be refreshing for me.

BlackHaddock (3779) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
500ml brown bottle: BBD end of Oct 2014. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home after some gardening on 29th April 2014. Light amber too dull gold in colour, the head a thin white covering and thicker collar. Just what I needed after a little hard labour. Refreshing and thirst quenching with a citrus bite in both the aroma and taste. Not the sort of beer I normally like or buy (it was part of a present) but it did the job nicely today.
