Tart gooseberry and soft peach on the nose. Gooseberries and fruit to taste, before an intense bitterness that’s as sharp as a macaw’s screech!

Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows toffee, caramel, herbal earthy hops, orange marmalade. Moreish. Pretty similar flavours, more slight caramel and bready malt with some earthy hops underneath. Could use more carbonation.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2013
(bottle, 4.8% abv) Clear, amber colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Fruity hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, but also a woody and slightly sweaty touch, accompanied by shades of bready cara-malt. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty with a present hops profile, including notes of citrus and grapefruit; quite dry and moderately bitter, also lasting fruity hoppy finish. Easy-going Ale. 25.IX.13

ThirstyBird (2315) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Many thanks to bobinlondon for leaving this treat among others for a dead-drop pick up! Pours an orangish color with a slight haze. Smells of peach, fruit, mild floral hops. Taste is tropical fruit and floral hops ending dry and slightly bitter. Light in body and beautifully carbonated. Great stuff!

500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear golden orange with moderate-sized near white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral, grassy hops with gentle tropical fruit. Flavour has notes of flowers, light grapefruit and other tropical fruits and grass. Modest bitterness in finish. Full of flavour but easy-drinking. Nice.
