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!

In bottle. This is a nicely textured bitter with a hoppy finish. I enjoyed the low alcohol.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2013
0.66l bottle. A blurry - going cloudy after a while dark golden colored beer with a small quickly islandy and bubbly just off-white top. Peachy and fruity nose. Citrus and American hops with a little bit of sweetness. Caramel perhaps and all he way in tho back some hints of cinnamon stick. Smells nice. It has a light almost thin mouthfeel with a soft carbonation level. Quite alright to drink as well. A little bit of grapefruit, it had a nice bitterness - not to much, but Iím pleased that there at least is some. Watered down fruits like peaches and red apples. Yeas, I can drink lots of this, cause itís quite nice. 06.07.2013

lusikka (6609) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2013
660 ml bottle, enjoyed at Barcelona.
Pours a amber golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, herbs and citrus. Flavour of rich grassy hops, strong citrusy hops, grass, pale malts and prominent herbal notes. Light bodied, very slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes dry, citrusy and very bitter. Very quaffable indeed.

prawlie (1208) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Third of a pint at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Murky orange with bubbly head. Citrus hop aroma. Hoppy, but not too much, with citrus zest, smooth. Tasty but not exceptional.

HogTownHarry (6135) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
August 20, 2013 - handpull cask at Earl of Essex. Bubbly and hazy orange-amber with a solid and lasting straw/beige clearly head. Aroma of blood orange and pungent grassiness, some alcohol; taste is very bitter indeed (unlike most "bitters") - pungently floral with a grapefruit residue, quite fruity. Thick, chewy, still, long-finishing - my luck with this brewery is very good; looking forward to them at Cask Days 2013!

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014

Aug 2013 - GBBF. Cloudy yellow/brown with decent white head. Slight pineapple in the smell. Mid to light body. Not a lot going on in the flavour really - soft bitterness, water, some astringency. Stupidly drinkable, but a bit ordinary. (3.4)

Apr 2014 - Cask at Draft House. Hazy dark orange, small white head. Aroma - orange, grass, slight bubblegum. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - spinach, herbs, toned down citrus, watery. Not bad. (3.6)
