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.

Aroma is straight elderflower, with some other fruit and grass if you dwell into it for too long. Head is good and light, like the beer itself (it actually looks too pale to be interesting! Surprise!). There is a good bitterness in the flavour, accompanied by tropical fruit and a very citrusy overtone. No overt maltiness, but some very slight sweetness balances the beer out. In general, a very light, refreshing, hoppy beer. In a way not unusual, but does deliver what it promises.

LordDrachen (115) - reggio emilia, ITALY - JUL 7, 2014
Bevuta diverse volte sia in bottiglia che alla spina. Pale ale molto beverina, corpo leggero, un buon naso, agrumato e fresco, non invadente. Buon amaro di supporto, retro-olfatto che richiama tropici e frutta fresca. Decisamente godibile, soprattutto a pompa.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 15, 2014
22 oz. bottle dated best by 3/20/15. It pours a lightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very nice with strong, tangy citrus and some florals. Lemon/lime with some light bready malt. The flavor is the same. Lemon, lime, florals with some background crackers and honey. Mildly bitter finish. The body is light, but packed with flavor. Nice stuff.
