Cask & bottle; Regular.
Formerly known as Celtic Dragon and brewed at 4.6%.
Also available bottle conditioned as Extravaganza.

A refreshing contemporary cask conditioned golden ale full of citrus taste and aroma. This ale is brewed using a single pale ale malt giving at a lovely golden colour. Citrus flavoured hops are used during the boil to produce an intense fruity flavour which is often enjoyed as a more flavorsome alternative to lager.

allmyvinyl (7783) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 2, 2014
500ml bottle from Real Ale Warehouse. Pours clear gold, no head. Aromas are butterscotch and apple crumble. Taste is more diacetyl-butterscotchness and light spicy hops. Light body, thin texture. Slightly astringent finish. Might be better in the bottle-conditioned version, but I wouldn’t rush to find out.

Gurthnar (4099) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle shared by Cuso. Aroma is mostly hoppy. Earthy, grassy, I can say British. Clear golden colour. Taste is initially sweetish grainy malty. After a moment balancing earthy hops appear. Thinnish body, nicely drinkable. Good British character.
