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."

erickok (3415) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 24, 2014
Simple appearance, bubbly head. Grainy, zesty, herbs, simple. Taste is better, nice and bitter. Overall a bit boring, although the palate is excellent. Especially a well made but boring aroma. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

mkaminski (21) - POLAND - JUN 10, 2014
OH MY GOD THIS IS AWESOME. I fell in love with this beer after the first sip - great body, notes of hay and grass, with mild citrusy undertones. And it looks great when poured too - head isn’t too tall, but the foam sticks to the sides of the glass nicely. The greatest beer in Scotland and one of the best things I tried.

martjoobolut (562) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours golden with off-white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is malt, sweetness, and citrus. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter, malt, and citrus. Finish is short fruity bitterness. Overall: ok session beer.

trotwood (15) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Pours golden with a decent but transient head. Some citrusy hoppy aroma. No bitterness and only moderate spice. Little carbonation, perhaps due to less CO2 in bottling. Overall, a nice pick, very drinkable.

Mr_Pink_152 (509) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
500ml bottle from local supermarket. Colour is clear golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours of ruits, citrus and sweet finish. Not as zesty as the lable suggests.
