500ml bottle. Pours copper, very clear with moderate off-white head. Nice aroma of lightly mulled fruits and citrus. Some sweetness to begin followed by gentle malt and a mild bitter finish which is offset by some lingering sweetness too. Not particularly complex or distinctive and perhaps not too memorable but pretty pleasant overall.

Golden with a small white head. Malty aroma with diacetyl. Sweet malty flavour with grassy hops, but too much diacetyl

worldbeertaste (1755) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
Medium to dark amber/orange with a disappearing white no lace, frothy head. Smells and tastes of toasted malt, caramel, butter and a light citrus bitterness. Some light fruit. Medium thin body. Starts out rather sweet malt, caramel with a bit of grass on the bitter hop finish. The fruitiness is enjoyable. Nice balance overall. The finish has a bit of a chemical tinge due to the pasteurisation.

average frothy white head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent thin light orangeish-yellow body. aroma: moderate hoppy, peach. if: light sweet moderate bitter. ff: light sweet heavy bitter; average duration. palate: light medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation, chalky finish. aroma de lúpulo de qualidade, frutado, lembrando pêssego, amargor de lúpulo (de qualidade, à la IPA), leve dulçor lembrando pessego, sem ser artificial (do processo), bebida resfriada, não gelada, agradável, boa drinkability, pode ser degustada em uma pessoa tranquilamente, amargor escalante, o dulçor de pêssego surge como intruso, mas por outra ótica pode ser considerado como um diferencial, falta o toque amadeirado dos exemplos mais clássicos,bem como o toque de malte caracteristico 80 s

Bottle by 31 MAR 13. Nose lightly metallic with harsh earthy hop overtones and mild Bitter fruitiness. Dull golden-orange mixture with a rocky white head. Taste relatively dry with light but lasting bitterness, touch of bread in with mild astringency, thin malt and the light body with a little more heft than fullness.

Golden pour, foamy head. Bit fizzy. Nice crisp flavour, slightly sweet and not much aftertaste. Quite refreshing, could easily drink a few of them.
