COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Available occasionally on cask as Priors Gold.
A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

A beautiful, orange beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is fresh and nice, biscuits, fruits and citrusfruits. Taste is quite dry, biscuity malts, medium bitterness, citrusfruits, some dryig herbs in the aftertaste. Almost medium bodied, medium carbonation. Nice and aromatic beer.

500 ml bottle. Rated on 2.2.2013.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grass, floral hops and caramel. Flavour of mild floral hops, biscuity malts, bread, resin and caramel. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter malty finish. Not at it’s best anymore.

olio (6395) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2012
50 cl bottle.
Pours pale clear golden color with a large head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus fruits and caramel. Flavor is pretty much the same with some floral and herbal notes on the finish. Bitter and crisp palate. Better and certainly hoppier than I expected.
