Bottle @home (Euro-vision 2016 tasting.) Pours yellowish, small white head. Nose is citrus fruits, big lemon, pine. Taste is lemon and citrus fruits. A very well balanced beer that makes the most of its parts.

bratschepeter (48) - Abilene, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2016
On tap at the Black Sheep Pub (Campbeltown, Scotland). Pours a mostly clear attractive golden color with significant and slow dissipating brilliant white head; lots of sticky lacing coats the glass. The nose is faint floral hops with some jasmine-like sweetness; the taste is earthy hops, light bitterness and a bit of biscuity malt. Medium carbonation and some lingering hop bitterness with more of the jasmine essence, finishes mostly dry. A very pleasant pint.

500ml bottle. Pale golden / straw colour, smooth fine white head, very long lasting. Aroma of light malt and citrus hops, grassy floral notes. Taste is much the same with light malt and hop flavours and a light bitter finish. A fine light golden ale.

Citrus aroma, not too overpowering. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Bitter hoppy taste. Medium body, light texture, soft carbonation with a bittersweet aftertaste. I like this and many other Fyne Ales, nice to have such a quality brewery so close to home :-)
