500ml bottle. Pours cloudy gold with very little head. Mild aroma hides very heavy hops with an immediate sourness that gives way to a long bitter finish. Huge amounts of citrus with some tropical fruit. Dry, refreshing and hugely enjoyable.

shoulderbroken (3658) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2016
Tap at the Stansted airport Wetherspoons. Fruity, hoppy, surprising. Light and refreshing. First beer in a few days. After a little it gets a little yeasty and has more real ale character but a pleasant surprise.

On tap at The Wheel and Compass, Weston By Welland. Light golden pour with small white head. Subtle grassy and hoppy notes with toasted grains. Dry hoppy citrus finish, Lacking complexity yet very pleasent and drinkable.

Towey1989 (1748) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, slight grapefruit, a little apple, some pale malts and grassy hops. Taste of soapy lemon, some grapefruit, a little apple, slight pale malts and subtle spicy, grassy hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A short, soft, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A basic golden ale, some decent hoppy notes but it’s quite soapy and oily like most people picked up on. Ok.

Light golden color. Very unremarkable and simple hoppy flavor. Unremarkable beer, but by no means bad.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Cask at brewery Pours bright light orange hue with a small rocky white head and great lacing. Nose is leafy hops lots of grassy notes and cracker pale malt. Flavors are both leafy hops and pale toasted grains. Quite nice. A pinch of green apple but less than the bishops. Finish is pretty dry with lingering leafy hops and dry pale malt husks. Pretty decent session brew.

Holmen1 (4733) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2016
Flaske fra Det gode brygg (Sandnes), delt med Ovesen på starten av dagens brygging: flott utseende med skum som varer, og en herlig citrusaroma med blomster og lyse bær i tillegg. Smaken likeså, dette er en superb øl, like velegnet til pøsing som smaking og ettertanke.
