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.

Brenhophead (548) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2013
650mL bottle (BB 31.5.14). Pours a very pale straw colour with a sweet citrus bouquet with a berry like hint and unfortunately some skunk. The skunk is overpowering in the follow, hard to pull anything. i’m sure this would be a great beer fresh alas the bottle in front of me is far from it.

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.
