Bottle. Golden colored liquid, very clear with fair white head. Aroma is very citrusy, also some grass and not very good iron note. Taste is bittersweet, like unfiltered orange juice. Medium body with sticky texture and average carbonation. Clean, zesty finish. I expected little bit more from this.

On tap at Toulavy Kocour Pub Brno (03/03/13). Hazy very pale gold pour with frothy pure white head. Aroma is a real citrus bomb, citra/centennial, orange pulp, really perfumy and enticing. Flavor of freshly squeezed orange juice, nice citrusy taste, biscuity malts, really clean, good zesty finish, bitterness is light. Palate is light, nice and dry, medium carbonation. Really good.

My Bottom Line:
Super citrusy and floral hoppiness moves into refined base malts before leaving a trail of resinous bitterness on the palate.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam garnishes the dark golden haze.
-The hop bitterness also has grassy edges.
-Mouthfeel is slender, very drinkable.
-It could be more aromatic, but it is a very friendly, refined hop vehicle.
On tap at U Toulavy Kocour, Brno.
