COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
"Bottled with approximately 1/3rd less Carbon Dioxide than most beers. This results in a fresher more natural tasting beer. Combines Hallertau Hersbrücker with Challenger. Late hopped with Styrian Goldings, which gives a sharpness like the twist of a lemon."

This drinks like a good lager. Clean crisp & refreshing. Good for a hot summers day. Citrus is not overpowering and add a nice edge to it.

josanguapo (1048) - SPAIN - MAY 15, 2016
From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. After dinner. Clean, crisp and refrshing, with a profile more close to a good soft lager than an ale. Very sessionable

MarcinG (397) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Zloty kolor. Piana biala mala szybko znikajaca. Aromat cytrusow trawy chmielu i ziaren. W smaku dosc cierpkie. Cytrynowa swiezosc sprawia ze piwo jest bardzo pijalne. Lekko goryczkowy finisz. Niezle

jrodooo5 (1474) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 9, 2016
Clean and crisp with an odd bitterness in the finish. Pours ok - gold with a thin white head & a tad bit of lacing. The aroma is primarily grainy and malty. The taste is clean until the odd bitter finish. It’s not bad for the style but not the greatest overall.

Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
500ml bottle. I didn’t find as much aroma as the label led me to believe, but this is a smooth session ale, not bad at all.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours pale yellow with watery white head which rapidly dissipates. Aroma is light with fresh fruitiness - slight tangerine. Taste is fresh with good level of bitterness. Level of carbonation is good, overall a very refreshing and drinkable beer.
