COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regula 4%. Also available bottled at 4.4%. r.
This light igniting ale flickers complex fruits across your tongue leaving a dry fruity bitter finish smothering your thirst. Inferno uses a blend of five different hops from the Yakima Valley to create its floral aroma and unique flavour.

Marduk (2009) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2014
500ml bottle. Cloudy, light brown color. Small size, white head, stays. Grassy, hops, fruity, juicy. bit minerals in aroma. Grainy, mild grassy hops, just a touch of citrus in taste. Some might say its watery, but I find it perfectly balanced for hot summer I mean Estonian winter day. Nice long lasting grassy bitterness in aftertaste.

chinchill (1367) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
500 ml bottle stamped BB 1 May 2014. Pours light amber, slightly hazy, with a small weak bubbly head. Aroma of mild hops, mainly of the citrus and floral types. Flavor: a nice mix of hops with a mild malt base. The floral aroma carries over to the taste; too much so. Feel: overly thin and watery body; decent carbonation level.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Golden and floral hoppy. There’s a nice lemony character. Snappy bitterness, good balancing pale malt. Tasty drop. A re-rate a few weeks later at at JDW in Glasgow confirmed this to be good stuff.

elbernays (308) - IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow with head that reduces. Okay lacing on the way down. Fruity aroma, lots of lemon, mild sugar, bread. Flavour is lemon sherbet with a dry tang on the finish. Very drinkable session ale.

thirstyrabbit (998) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Dull golden body, almost greenish. Medium to small head. Hoppy aroma with sweet mango and pineapple. Sweet fruity taste, later something milky. Finish has medium bitterness but it just slowly crawls up without a proper bite. This has to be the most confusingly titled beer I’ve had. You think Inferno is sweet and candy-like?

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2013
50cl bottle I picked up at Schneider’s. Pours a clear, dark gold with some thin, sudsy, white head. Nose is very fruity and inviting, some lemon, some orange, a little honey, some lemon tea, light pear, light plum, some mild malt, lightly floral. Flavor is similar, lemon tea, honey over white toast, a little star fruit, very light apricot, a little grass, a hint of pine. Clean finish. Pretty nice beer overall. Not a ton of complexity, but good flavor.

Gary (1288) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 bottled . This what I wish more UK golden ales were like , its aggressive stuff - really hop heavy and very dry -it kinda resembles Punk IPA b4 the recipe was raped and ruined ; A damn good golden ale ...as dry as a gin-n-tonic .

The aroma is a fruity, pleasant sweet smell. The brew is pale gold in color with a light bodied white head. It is dry with a compliment of hots and a tinge of fruit.
