4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear pale gold color with tons of bubbles running up from the bottom of the pint glass. Head pours cream colored but fades almost immediately. Smells extremely earthy and bready with a very faint hop presence and a not too subtle sweetness. Although I LOVE the taste of this beer. The hop is noticeable but not anywhere near what I’m used to in American IPAs. Present but not over powering. The yeasty/biscuit notes are wonderful and there’s a slight sweetness that has to be malt derived. It finishes extremely clean and has almost zero aftertaste. I could definitely see myself drinking more of this throughout the summer months because of the 4.2 ABV and easy drink-ability along with the great taste. Really glad I finally decided to pick this beer up for a try.

Rich tasting beer with nice colour. Somehow anonymous smell, but all in all a good beer.

Some citrus, slightly corny, grassy hops, quite a smooth finish. Decent golden ale.

Very light citrus taste. Slight hoppiness... And not much carbonization. It’s ok.

50cl bottle - pours cloudy pale amber with little white head. Nose is grass and caramel. Flavor adds bread and nuttiness. A little sweet and not very bitter. Better than I expected for the style.

Cerveja leve e muito boa. De cor passando de dourado para laranja. O aroma e o sabor se assemelham bastante por causa das notas citricas (limao). Tem um final meio travoso. Boa cerveja.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BB Jan 2013. Pours sparkling clear orange with foamy white head that endures. Smells wheat, orange. Tastes sweet malts, citrus, slightly sour, creamy/buttery, some lager qualities. Body is medium for style with low carbonation. I’m quite impressed with how this has held up after being stored away in my warm flat for several months.

16.9 oz bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a cloudy orange with white lacing. Smells solid; malty, doughy, and a bit hoppy with light citrus notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.
