At the lower end of the strength scale there is Aur Cymru, (pronounced Ire Cumrie), a clear, bright golden ale with a clean refreshing taste. An initial bitterness gives way to a sweeter, floral body as the Cascade hops burst through and citrus notes linger to the finish.

TEJA (2420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle from Björn, thanks. Huge off white head that unfortunantly is rather short. Thinn yellow color. Lemon fresh hop aroma. Dry hoppy taste with no residual sweetness to give a crisp beer.
