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.

Can from Connolly’s Wines, Solihull. poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast and bags of citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light, fruity, light woody hop bitter, light floral palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. No bubbles here, just bags of fruit!

Can from Rayneville Superstore, Armley, Leeds. Very hoppy aroma, full of deep flavour, I got some Malt but overall very hoppy. Great taste though and can’t believe it’s only 4.1%. Very sessionable.

GoufCustom (1573) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2016


330 ml can bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Translucent golden honey colour with a cloud of misty yeast particles; Two finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing and very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with strong passion fruits, canned peaches, pineapples, honey, strong floral, sugar, bread, strong yeast, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Close to light sweet Ale malt, with wheaty tartness, light grapefruits, citrus, yellow fruits, floral, light molasses, biscuits, strong yeast, light lemon, fair bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Thin but creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid maltyness in a slightly watery yet very smooth background with notable wheaty tartness. Low-fi grapefruit and citrus echo the floral and pretty light sweetness. Yeasty with light lemon to round. Light and refreshing!

Hoppiness: Strong passion fruits, canned peaches, pineapples, strong floral, lemon and light grass in nose. Light grapefruits, citrus, yellow fruits, floral, light lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is close to medium for a lasting, fairly astringent grassy finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is pretty much in the mould of Session IPA with very nice tropical fruity aroma, yet taste is light touch of malt and hops with smooth palate and relaxing impression on all fronts. Pretty well-made already but stronger hop taste and variety will be ever better. Easy going chill-out material!

Dorata, lievemente velata, schiuma molto sottile. Al naso sentori erbacei, fruttati ed agrumati. Carbonazione elevata. Leggera, floreale. Note agrumate, pompelmo. Malto nascosto a favore di una discreta amarezza, specie sul finale.

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2016
330ml can. Pours a very hazy light gold. Inviting nose with fruity notes, boiled fruit sweets and sherbet. Also some grapefruit. Very little of the nose follows through into the taste. It’s all a bit washed out and nondescript. Very light malt and hop presence and it all feels a bit watery. Reasonably bitter finish, light body and medium carbonation. Promised a lot more than it delivered.
