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.

Meravigliosa golden ale inglese fatta alla perfezione dalla mano di questo grande birrificio. Colore oro con schiuma bianca. Al naso note floreali, agrumi e miele. In bocca corpo medio leggero e bilanciata benissimo con sapore di luppolo fresco e malto. Finale pulito e aromaticamente persistente. Questa birra è un vero spasso per il palato, ultra beverina e pericolosa visto che non stanca mai!

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Draught @ Brasserie 4:20 (Rome) - Another incredible golden ale by Moor, sincerely I prefer the Southern Star Cask I had some weeks ago, but this one is great too! Fresh, elegant, quite perfect. The aroma is intense, light but perfectly balanced, honey, apple, grapefruit and hops. I think I could drink 10 pint and I would have mo(o)re!

Damn fine. Great APA. Hop head bliss. Low on malt, just the way I like it. Fantastic taste considering the lower abv - which is no bad thing.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 Superb hoppy fruity flavour with a really good aroma. A top pint for those that like American style hops

Grzesiek79 (3933) - Radom, POLAND - APR 26, 2016
33ml Can. Piwo swietnie pacnnie cytryna i limonka i niedojzala pomarancza. Smak gozko wytrawny lekko slodowy, wyrazisty bardzo goryczkowy, typowy dla brytyjskich ale. Wyglad to jaskrawe zolte piwo, mocno mętne z drobinkami paleczek drożdżowych, male wysycenie ale spora piana, średnio trwala. Koncowka dluga i goryczkowa, gdyby nie było by w puszce był bym jeszcze bardziej zadowolony.

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 25, 2012
04/02/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (cask). Dorata viva con riflessi ambrati, schiuma praticamente assente. Aroma deciso, elegantemente amaro, con note fruttate di pesca e pompelmo ed erbacee, lievemente caramellate. In bocca ha un sapore più amaro, secco e deciso della Southern Star, grazie alla luppolatura americana, che però non risulta mai invadente. Secca, con spiccate note citriche. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Freschissima, pulita, elegante e beverina.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
66cl bottle (nice & fresh). Pours light gold with thin white head - plenty of lacing. Aroma is delicious: lots of wonderful mango, lime, tangerine, floral notes, pine needles and spruce. Taste follows suit with an incredible hit of citrus, pine resin and loads of delectable tropical fruit (pineapple and mango especially). Such wonderful pale malt character - just a touch of biscuit sweetness in there to frame the amazing hop hit. Residual pine & citrus character & a lingering bitterness on the palate. Medium/thin mouthfeel, perfect carb. Finish is crisp and dry. My good lord, this is incredible. I could drink this all day long for ever more. Tomorrow i’m going out to buy as many of these as I can carry. Moor, once again, you have excelled yourselves.

Cask-conditioned @ Brasserie 4:20....A metà strada tra l’Inghilterra ed il Belgio, una Golden Ale assolutamente godibile e beverina (anche troppo :)) ), fantastica la luppolatura che emerge al naso!
