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.

mabel (7015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
[5935-20131019] Cask. Lemon orange peel aroma. Hazy, pale orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter orange peel flavour has a long-lasting bitter citrus lychee aftertaste. Medium body is a little bitter. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

BrunoSanchez (160) - Fermo, ITALY - OCT 16, 2014
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!

danielecamo (635) - ITALY - OCT 15, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore oro carico, piuttosto limpida, schiuma fine, non molto abbondante, mediamente persistente. Aroma intenso erbaceo, fiori di campo, citrico. Al palato corpo snello, sentori di erba appena tagliata, fiori di campo, lime e finale secco ed amaro ma non eccessivo. Ottima birra!

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Tap @ Angleterre, Helsinki 30/08/14, thanks Gastjale. Pours a hale yellow with a good, white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, some tropical guava. Taste is much of the same, grapefruit is stronger. Light with good carbonation.

Cask at Urban Tap House, Cardiff, late August 2014. Not as hoppy as the brewery blurb suggests, but a great session ale nonetheless.

mkel07 (3922) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Rmpirium June 2013. Middle of the range golden ale with so e nice fruitiness in both aroma and flavour. An easy drinking beer.

TimE (3628) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
Hazy golden color. Frothy white, big fresh hoppy nose with flowers, honey and a touch of pine. That nose is amazing. Light body, very hop accented, but very gentle hops makes everything work. Nice light bitter finish. Superbly refreshing. World class Golden Ale.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, tropical fruit. Taste brings it together with a light malt backbone. Creamy texture, clean finish. Amazing for the low abv (esp. compared to the kernel tasted alongside).
