Light gold colour, bit of white head. Light to medium body, good carb. Plenty of caramel and honey, and English hops, which are a touch harsh at the end.

SangreSani (336) - Głowienka, POLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Sparkling clear, gold colored beer with small head. In aroma there’s strong smell of tropical fruits. Very good taste full of bitterness, balanced with optimal amount of sweetness. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Smooth. Surprisingly good beer.

Beitifully citrussy on the nose. More like a fresh hoppy lager than an IPA. Super refreshing

nazzty (1156) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2015
The aroma is fruity and fresh, but unfortunately the taste does not live up to that with some unbalanced sour flavors and a thin body that leaves an insignificant impression.

Dark blond color, clean. Delicate malt aroma, toffee, very light manure. Dry mouthfeel; good combination of toffeeish malts, English hops, English yeast, a bit leafy and grassy, with robust final bitterness.
Very nice, clean, above expectations.\

It’s a real happiness/hoppiness, the triumph of hops. There’s also a taste of melon which completes the flavour of a wonderful beer!
