"Golden beer with a fresh crisp finish. Specially brewed to be served cooler."
Light and refreshing with a low present gravity as most of the sugars are converted into alcohol. The key note pink grapefruit comes from the Cascade hop. Some First Gold hop in the boiling copper gives a refreshing bitterness. Easy drinking with loads of flavour.

Kita (1914) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep golden color with thin soapy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is grassy, grainy and dusty with mild caramel note. Taste starts light sweet grainy, follows sour grassy, citric and chalky, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Mehhh, no need for re-try...

Pours clear copper color with short lasting white head. Smell of malt and yeast, some hops in the background. Thin to medium body with very vivid carbonation. Watery texture. Taste is mildly bitter. Refreshing aroma of fruit, hops, malts and a hint of toffee. Finish is short and dry with a citrus mouthfeel. Overall, not bad. Perhaps a bit too watery, but still nicely refreshing
