Bottle from Beer Bistro. Hazy golden colour in a tulip glass. No head. Aroma of yeast and citric hops. Medium bodied. Flavour of pear, citrus fruits and lemon rind, leafy hops and wildflowers. There’s a lactic element to it; I’m not sure if it is intentional, but I like it. It is very much like an old blue goat cheese, nice and complex. Long citric finish.

Lejongul och lätt grumlig av jästfällning. Vitt kraftigt skum. Doft av hö och blommor. Torr med en trevlig beska som drar åt citron och grapefrukt.

Little bit hazy. Unfiltered lager colour e.g. orange yellow. Small but sturdy head. Taste is sweet & hoppy. Arome has ground and basement going on. After taste is long and bitter. Some how I felt this might be better if made stronger.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl. bottle from a beer retailer. It pours an odd hazy light orange liquid with many great yeast spots floating, and with a thin white head that somehow lasts throughout the beer, but leaves no lacing. The aroma is light, but quiet complex: a distant herbal hoppiness mixed with a notable fruity overall, with hints of citron (mostly orange and a little lime), mango and light peaches, along with a good deal of yeast. It sadly fades as it evolves. It tastes likewise, but intenser. It is medium sweet, with a very pleasant citrusy sour touch and low-medium bitterness. It is mildly but lively carbonated and medium bodied; very pleasant in the mouth. It ends long and dry with a nice herbal and fruity (citron and mango) aftertaste. Very nice presentation (though it lacks a customized crown cap) for a very drinkable and natural tasting beer that could easily be better with a couple of fixes.

Pretty easy drinkable beer. Easy to forget also. Colour was it’s best feature for me.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Hazy gold/orange colour, fairly sized head. Will also give a small note to the rather quaint, half-psychadelic label - I approve. Aroma is impressively complex, sweet with hints of bitterness, quite floral and citrusy. Taste is wonderful - citrussy, hoppy, grassy. Very tasty, but with a bitterness underneath that adds a lot of depth and character. Beautifully balanced, very hard to fault. Impressed.
EDIT, 31/12/12. Keg at North, this time - found it a lot more impressive than is remembered. Really complex nose, great taste, great palate. Added 1 aroma, palate and overall point.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: hazy blond, with a decent whitish head and generous lacing. Aroma: sweet, grassy, floral and a little wheaty. Taste: grass and hay, with citrus, flowers, and a little biscuit; more bitterness than the aroma indicated. Finish: dry, lingering light bitterness over crackers. Notes: Seemed like a middling Belgian Pale Ale, rather than a golden or blond. Palate was on the watery side.

25 cl, tap @ Poatersgat. Blonde hazy beer with nice lacing white head. Aroma of hops, bitterness, orange peel and citrus. Taste is hoppy, grassy with cirtrus notes in it, and a malty background making the beer milder. Orange peel and other fruitiness also comes to the foreground towards the beer. The aftertaste is nicely bitter. Only one remark: Taras Boulba is better :-)
