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.

Pours a soft and clean straw yellow with a thin and weak white head. Nose is soft with some subtle fruity notes and bready malt. Get diacetyl and light peachy notes as well. Very bitter in the flavor and on the finish. Astringent. Diacetyl shows more than I like but is probably appropriate for the style. Diacetyl becomes too much for me as it warms up, tastes like something turned..... Some fruity esters on the finish and a touch grainy. Meh.

Yellow coloured ale with a very small head. Full fruity aroma with grapefruit evident. The taste is just as fruity.

My Bottom Line:
This silky Golden Ale develops citrus fruit over hay-like cereals for a compelling summer quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces nicely around the clear golden.
-Delicate hop resins balance out the finish with their bitterness.
-The natural carbonation and intelligent hop dosage make for supreme drinkability.
-This may not be the most memorable brew in their lineup, but itís still a world-class hoppy golden ale. Howís that for talent?

On cask at The Cambridge Blue.

Cask@Barton Arms, Aston. Golden beer with a medium frothy head. Aroma is hoppy pine resin. The taste is citrus, pine resin, pepper and some sharp bitterness. Reminds me of an IPA. Excellent beer with a touch of heat.

Hanoi (395) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Nose is kiwi, melon grapefruit. Some caramel malt. Taste is Lime and grapefruit rind leading to some resin and a sour tangerine finish. Mouthfeel is full. Very nice beer, which takes some of the American IPA styles and does some different enough to be interesting.

Wonderful Golden Ale. The Aroma of this beer is just amazing thanks to the 5 different hops. It is however not too bitter, just a light bitterness in the finish. From a box of English beers this is the best one so far.

Colore oro, velata. Schiuma compatta e persistente. Aroma floreale, maltato, con sentori erbacei e fruttati. Nel palato amara, con note agrumate e sentori di malto. Finale secco. Carbonatazione scarna.

Do I like dubstep? Iíve got some, I went through a phase but Iím not in a rush to go back. Burial was up there. Moody? Iím a stroppy mofo but Iím not sure thatís the same. Iím game for anything truth be told, and the truth is, I love Kim Deal.
