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.

IlGagario (114) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 3, 2016
Lattina, a casa. Colore giallo oro/arancio. Testa alta e soapy, persistente ed in lenta diminuzione. Carbonazione flat. Olfatto di agrumi (arancia e pompelmo) e frutti tropicali (mango e avocado), uva, lontana sensazione di pesca, oltre ad erbe (salvia, menta e luppolo fresco) e fiori maturi. Aroma primariamente citrico fruttato e luppolato, poi maltato (orzo, grano e lievito) in stile inglese. Sensazione palatale piccante, alcolica, di agrumi e luppoli. La discreta luppolatura è molto soddisfacente, gentilmente amara e mossa. Corpo sottile di impostazione session. Tessuto watery, appena oleoso. Pulita ed estremamente scorrevole, con finale di beva maltata dove sparisce del tutto la frutta, fino a pochi istanti prima protagonista. Una buona e freschissima golden pale ale inglese, che strizza l’occhio alle moderne session ipa, ma nettamente più gentile ed azzimata. Un po’ trattenuta: avevo ipotizzato una maggiore intensità, soprattutto nel corpo, dato lo stile dichiarato. Comunque promossa.

kajser27 (1271) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 29, 2016
Cloudy pale orange colored, small+ non lasting white head, nice lacing. Aroma is of some caramalt, floral grassy and citrus hops. Taste is light to medium sweet caramel malt background, floral and citrus moderate hoppy aroma, biscuity and grassy dry finish, medium- bitterness. Light bodied, a bit too watery, soft carbonation.
