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.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
(Bottle): Hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of grass, hops, citrus, malt, straw, floral. A quite zesty citrus taste with malt, grass, floral notes punching through also faint pine and tropical fruit notes. Nice bitterness but not too much. Arguably the best in this style.

66 cl bottle.
Pours pale clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy, some floral notes, pale malts and grass also. Flavor is also fruity with hay, some malty notes, goose berries and hops. Nice balance, a bit thin-bodied but doesn’t really matter, tasty.

TET (1542) - FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
A hazy, slightly orange beer with an almost medium and white head. The nose is slightly tropical, mangos, peaches, also more sophisticated nuancees, some pine needles and citrusfruits. Taste is almost dry and fresh, tropical fruity, biscuity malts, surprisingly intensive bitterness, strong but smoothly biting. Almost medium bodied, fresh and medium carbonation. The srongly bittery, easy and fresh Golden Ale, this is good beer.
