A sparkling golden ale that has been bottle conditioned to give the beer superior freshness and condition. Best Pale Ale and Cara Gold malts combine to give this special beer a rich, malt flavour which is enhanced by tropical fruit aromas from the traditional English hops.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2015
Bottled (backlog). Deep golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some floral hoppy notes along with some toffee. Flavour is very similar and actually quite nice and refreshing beer for the terrace. Nothing that special, but fills it’s task being a fresh Summer beer.

(Bottle) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of peaches, orange, bread, honey and floral hops. Malty taste with bread, orange peel, peaches, tropical fruit and floral hops in a finish with a gentle bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Easy drinking beer with a fresh taste. Hardly exceptional, but quite enjoyable.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
100ml poured from a bottle at One Pint exhibition stand, second day at Ølfestival København 2013. Bright golden body, diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Leafy hops to the nose. The taste character is a smooth mix of fruity hops and pale malts. Fresh fruity aftertaste with mild bitterness. Easy to drink. Season qualities (Copenhagen, 24.05.2013).

Sigmund (6756) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Sample from bottle at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2013. Golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate "dusty" and slightly fruity aroma. The medium dry (or medium sweet, if you like) flavour has some smooth pale malts and moderate "dusty" English hops in the finish. Drinkable of course, but won’t be remembered as one of Fuller’s great beers.

NosirIwont (2368) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. 5.0%. Best before 05.05.14. Pours a clear golden with an off-white/yellowish head. Decent lacing. Sweetish floral hoppy aroma with a sweet berry-note, although not tart. Has a strawberry feel to it, without actually smelling like strawberries. Flavour is sweetish, hoppy and fruity with a slight cereal/grainy note. Mildly bitter, fruity finish with a lingering tart adn dry note. Metallic note as it warms, as well as grass and apple. Palate feels a bit greasy. Overall okay, and somewhat refrshing, but nothing special, and the greasy feel in the palate is a minus. 02.05.13.
