Bottle 500 ml from PS. Golden blonde ale, thin white foam. Fruity aromas, hops, citrus and herbs. The taste is also fruity, bittersweet, with citrus and cereals, notes of straw, zest and herbs. Dry finale, pleasant and digestible.

Thanks Olivia for the bottle. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a golden yellow with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing intricates itself in and around the glass in a spider web fashion. The smell had a light sweet earthy malt with some nice sweet citrus. The taste was mildly sweet through a combination of the earthy maltiness and citrus. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. It came across slightly crisp on my tongue. Overall, good beer, I’d have it again.

MarkoNm (531) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours a clear and very light yellow color, topped with a fine white head. Very pleasant aroma, citrusy malts and fruits. The taste is a kick - very bittery with lots of bitterness in the aftertaste. Still very decent.

Hanoi (393) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Nose is herbal, slight citrus and some floral tones. Taste is floral, leading to soft grains then an emerging dry hop finish with resin tones. It’s a little over sweet giving a slight sickliness. reasonable example of the style.
