A very hoppy and refreshing bitter, brewed to celebrate the revival of the brewery, and meant to revive you when you need it. Light in colour but not flavour thanks to a blend of Pale, Lager, Cara, Crystal and Wheat malts. The hops are a blend of American varieties, with American-style yeast providing a crisp finish. For a beer relatively low in alcohol it has a very full flavour and drinks well above its strength, earning it a multitude of awards and setting the standard for the style. A modern classic!

Aroma is mostly citrus and pine. Some malt comes through. Some pineapple. Mouthfeel is lively. Taste is quite dry, plenty of tropical fruit. Subtle caramel note. This is a lot better than the abv would have you believe. Good.

larsga (6309) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep golden body with fast carbonation. Kiwi and gooseberry aroma with mealy lemon zest notes. Dryish chalky grassy peas taste with white wine grape and earth notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry earthy lemon zest aftertaste with chalky resiny grassy notes. Nice, if a little sharp. (0.6l bottle, Akersberget, Oslo.)

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Cask at The Magpie, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fluffy, white foam head. Great golden ale all around. Fantastic citrus character, light sweetness, robust bitterness, some grass, lots of grapefruit and citrus rind, plenty of dry straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Crisp, clean finish, fresh grass and grapefruit, mild pale malts. Very, very good stuff.

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a small foamy head with limited retention and almost no lacing. Aroma of dry hops with light bitterness notes. Taste is a mix between dry malt backbones with some dry bitter hops notes. Body is quite full with limited carbonation. Not bad and probably a hops profile that was faded due to age of bottle but still interesting nonetheless.

visionthing (2969) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
Sampled from 66cl bottle at Beer Enthusiast release party, Håndverkerstuene. Pours clear golden with a nice, white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, pine, malt and fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Dry and nicely bitter finish with grapefruit. Lasting bitter and citrusy aftertaste. Very refreshing - hoppy and sessionable!

Aroma: Lemon, grass and shortbread.

Appearance: The yeast sediment leads to a murky, pale golden body with a medium, fluffy white head. Light carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Very refreshing lime, lemongrass and leafy flavours. Sharp, lingering bitter finish.

Palate: Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Lively carbonation for a bottle conditioned beer.

Overall: Light flavour - very clean and moreish. It reminds me a little of Fyne Ales’ Avalanche. To me, this is more of a golden ale than a bitter.
