This is for me like a toned down jarl despite its higherabv. the characteritics are there, i suspect is a change in the malt base. still a lovely beer but overshadowed by jarl

50cl bottle. BBE 06/2012. Hazy, pale yellow, creamy, lacing, lasting white head. Aroma has mostly citrus, but also grass and floral notes. Flavor is fruity hops, malt, citrus, bitter finish. Decently hopped. Good golden ale, enjoyable still even as it was an old bottle. Session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Aroma-wise it’s not bad, just average. A fine-looking pint, blonde and with a thick, foamy head. A sharp, bitter taste while not being overpowering. Would be a good session beer.

Similar pale blonde as Jarl with dry citrus aroma. Maltier than Jarl with orangey hops, a sharper finish and gentle carbonation.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours yellow with tiny impurities and a white head. Skewed British hops in the nose. Light body, very fresh hops dominates the flavour - Sorachi Ace?? Nah, I doubt it but it has a very fresh and tropical feel to it. Ends very bitter. 310312
