COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle conditioned; Regular.
Previously known as Northern Star.

Ultra-pale, ultra hoppy, ultra sexy, ultra modern golden ale showcasing Northern Hemisphere hops to impart a pronounced floral and citric quality to the beer, with honey and elderflower in the nose. This beer had been so anticipated that in less than two weeks of release it had won a beer festival and sold out. Not wanting to disappoint its many fans, we have rebrewed it and keep it on permanently.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Tap @ Angleterre, Helsinki 30/08/14, thanks Gastjale. Pours a hale yellow with a good, white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, some tropical guava. Taste is much of the same, grapefruit is stronger. Light with good carbonation.

Cask at Urban Tap House, Cardiff, late August 2014. Not as hoppy as the brewery blurb suggests, but a great session ale nonetheless.

Bottle from The Wine Rmpirium June 2013. Middle of the range golden ale with so e nice fruitiness in both aroma and flavour. An easy drinking beer.

TimE (3184) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
Hazy golden color. Frothy white, big fresh hoppy nose with flowers, honey and a touch of pine. That nose is amazing. Light body, very hop accented, but very gentle hops makes everything work. Nice light bitter finish. Superbly refreshing. World class Golden Ale.

allmyvinyl (3351) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, tropical fruit. Taste brings it together with a light malt backbone. Creamy texture, clean finish. Amazing for the low abv (esp. compared to the kernel tasted alongside).

Draft. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, flowers, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

laiti (5673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Draught @ Harry’s, Jyväskylä. Aroma has fruity hops and apricot. Also some mandarin. Flavour has fruity hops, strong mineral tones, apricot and honts of citrus. Too dry, I’d like this to have more fruits.

Superb hoppy fruity flavour with a really good aroma. A top pint for those that like American style hops
