COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
The beer has a prominent hop character; a blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade has been used in the recipe to bring the delicate hop flavours & aroma to the fore. The use of Cascade gives a pleasing citrus aroma. Finest pale Maris Otter malt has been blended with Wheat malt and Rye Crystal to provide a full flavoured beer. The lavish use of late hop dominates the malt flavour and results in a satisfying pint.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has strong notes of lemon - is it from lemongrass? but also with notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and lemon - I would never have guessed it came from Cascade hops - my guess was lemongrass, leading to a slightly acidic finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

Cloudy orange - gold beer. Crisp palate. Well balanced. Even malt, creamy. Leads straight in to orangey hops. Dry finish with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Standard stuff but well constructed.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 Bottle, shared by fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a decent off-white head. Butterscotch, pale malt, some cookies and a citrusy hoppyness in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, finishing with citrus and some bitterness. Medium lenght. Medium body. Far from a winner, but quite drinkable and with some refreshing qualities. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7. 080822

Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head. Citrusy and flowery nose with biscuity malts and something reminiscent of honey. Biscuity pale malts in the mouth, medium body fullness and with citrusy hops that don’t add much bittterness. Some peppery notes too. A quite tasteful and quenching beer, obviously in better form than the last time I had it. Still, nothing special. 091120

imdownthepub (10326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from a Co-Op in Peterborough, Cambs. Orange gold with thin head. Sharp, slightly tinny flavour initially with the general CO2 driven flavours. Some hop notes, hints of banana and pear drop perhaps with a boiled vegetable flavour. Ok but the pasteurisation is a bit harsh.

pivnizub (8888) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle: deep golden, a bit unclear, medium-sized and stable lacy, fluffy off-white head; distinctive floral hops and a tinge of sulphur in the nose; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and soft; shorter hoppy, juicy and fruity finish. Just a fine english brew.......
