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.

Scott_ (21) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
660ml bottle from Beer Central Sheffield. Pours a straw colour with a bright white head, smell is of passion fruit and sweet lemon. Initial sweet taste of oranges and grass leading to a long citrus infused bitter finish. A very nice beer indeed, only one draw back is the 660ml bottle when pouring into a pint glass, what remains in the bottle disturbs the sediment.
