Hazy gold. Rye malts and grassy aroma. Very lemony. Even hop bitterness but sugary and lemony. As it warms the hops get a bit subdued and the malts come out more. Decent, but nothing to seek out.

Une excellente biére, légérement amére, avec une bonne dose de fruité sans pour autant viré vers la IPA. Une biére équilibrée et très agréable. Je recommande chaudement.

Live rating of a 500mlbottle at home. Cooled in the fridge for an hour, served in a tulip. Dark gold with a proud rocky head. Aroma of cereal, honey and cinder toffee. Big flavour: mango, floral hops, honeycomb, and sauvignon blanc. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel lively carbonation long, bitter finish. Very tasty

kajser27 (629) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 19, 2015
Deeper camber colored, cloudy, medium to strong off white head, lasting. Aroma is sweet caramalt, tropical fruits, floral and citrus hops. Taste is medium- sweet caramel, biscuit, floral and fruity hops, some toffee-cakey notes, low to medium citrus bitterness. Medium bodied and carbonation. An older bottle so most of the hoppiness has disappeared and some aged woody, walnut and more caramel flavors have reared their heads. Definitely have to re-rate wiith a fresh bottle! (bottle, Bottle Park, Bratislava, SK)

Pale golden in colour with a large off-white head, aroma was very hoppy and citrusy with a very fresh floral hops aroma, would even go out to say a bit soapy. Quite a bitter taste in the beginning, followed by some biscuit malt with a slight sweetness from the malts. Medium to a full bitterness in my opinion with some grassy note.

Czeska Baszta, kran. Metnawe, cieplo-zolto-bursztynowe, z imponujaca i powoli opadajaca, brudzaca szklo piana. W aromacie dominuje zbozowosc, w tle tego dopiero cytrusy z chmielu, miod, chleb... w zaskakujaca strone aromat poszedl, co nie znaczy, ze mi to nie odpowiada, niemniej to zupelnie co innego niz wiekszosc APA, ktore sa zdominowane raczej przez chmiel. W smaku tez wyraznie w slodowa strone, dosc pelne w ustach, lekko slodkawe, lekko kwaskowate, z niewysoka goryczka. Bardzo dobre

Draught at Ibrew Wired. Nice fruity hoppiness, orange, peach, decent biscuit malt backbone, dry clean finish. Fairly straight-forward pale ale but highly sessionable with a quite pleasant finish.
