A dry crisp pale ale strongly hopped with wonderfully floral Nelson Sauvin hops to give a strong but mellow citrus finish.

An excellent pale from Ilkley, pours golden in colour, pungent NZ hops in the Aroma. Taste is catty, grassy NZ hops, with a perfectly pitched bitterness for a pale ale. Nelson Sauvin hops are used to great effect here, I would easily put this beer right up there with Kernel and Magic Rocks offerings.

Cunningham (4429) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Light unclear pale golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Very inviting and fresh aroma. Citric and mild malty. Quite ok body for and ale at 4,2%. Moderate sweet and a fresh bitterness. Nice fresh flavor with some citrus, fruity and mild malty. Nice one.

Bottle. Appearance: Light orange, small snow white head. Aroma: Fresh cut grass, paper, fruity too. Flavour: Sweet at first, changing to bitter with a slight hoppy bite, fruity, citrus, long bitter hoppy finish. Not bad.

ERB92 (252) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
Fruits, citrus and hay in the aroma. Clear golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing, hoppy Golden Ale. A bit more bitter than i am used to, but a sweet fruity flavour balances this brew very well.

Cask @ Kitty’s
Aroma has citrusy hops, some gooseberry bush and hay. Perhaps some caramel too. Flavour has herbal bitterness, some grapefruit and gooseberry bush leaves. I do not like the herbal bitterness here, but decent stuff anyway.

Tselloufc88 (105) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Clear straw coloured beer, plenty of fizz and a nice frothy white head. Looks like a pint of decent pilsner! Smell is of grass, harsh citrus, some nettles. Taste is of white grape with high levels of bitterness. Dry finish. Very refreshing and pretty moreish. I like the simplicity on offer here. Good summer beer.

Pale straw body, 1-finger white hue. Citric hops and citric malts to the nose. Citric fruity hoppy taste, grapefruit peel, modest malts. Slightly watery, but fresh and alright too. Hoppy finish with notes of grainy malts. Overall ok, but not superb. - Brown 500ml bottle abv4.2% b@Kjeller5 Tromsø,t@home.

Bottle from Morrisons. Clear, pale, straw colour. Thin, filmy, white head. Fresh, grassy and lemony. Some nettle. Clean, lively palate. Taste is dry, with a little yeast. Light bitterness, with a touch of astringency, at the end. Lovely session beer.
