Cask and bottle; Regular. 4.2% in cask.
The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Bright and golden. Lemony citrus aroma, perhaps some resin too but in a gentle manner. Good firm bitterness, citrus and some gooseberries in the taste. Solid and excellent beer.

Holmen2 (1437) - NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
From bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 13.10.14. Very pale, slightly hazy, golden. Diminishing white head. Aroma of lemon, gooseberries, tropical fruits and 7-UPs. Almost, but not quite, bordering to feline urine. Similar, but a bit waterish taste and mouthfeel.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours yellow, slightly cloudy, almost no head. Aroma of "catpiss", citrus. Quite sweet, but still balanced.

Pours yellow clear with a white head, that goes flat fast. Refreshing. Very straightforward. A bit boring though.

Sigmund (5449) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2014
500 ml bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.6%. Golden colour, moderate to low white head. Strong aroma of Citra hops, notes of citrus fruits and gooseberries, hints of tropical fruits. Distinctly hoppy flavour on a tolerable malty base, notes of citrus, gooseberries and tropical fruits again, grapefruity and wormwoodlike bitterness in the dry finish. Long, bitter and rather sharp aftertaste.
