"A light and refreshing beer. A surprisingly full mouth-feel with a superior balance of malt and hop, and a rewarding fruit finish."

Nice citrus flavour with a malty depth. Not too bitter nor is there a heavy alcoholic kick.

McWorta (487) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 12, 2012
Lovely light golden colour. Nice lasting soft pillowy white head. Noses hops and fresh cut coriander-citrus. Texture is light, oily bit soapy reminding again of coriander. Full body, lightly sweet with faint hints of bitterness a truly lovely balanced beer! Finish is long but pleasantly un-noticable.

WeissGary (279) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2012
Very light and really pale gold body with a fair white head. Aroma is fruity verging on a grassy finish. Quite a a malty taste with a fruity berry like finish which feels quite hoppy. Quite a decent beer!

MichaelAwesome (3023) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2012
0,5 l bottle. Definitely fruity, surprisingly and extremely refreshing. A bit bitter at the end, but an easy to drink beer at all.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2012
Pale golden colour, some white head, fruity and malty and a bit of zest. Malt is there but not over powering. It’s quite crisp (definitely in refreshing territory) and it has a component of apple and some yeasty spice. It’s actually a very good beer although it isn’t a pale ale (as listed). It’s too light and too crisp and fruity.

Can’t say much about the appearance as I drank it from the bottle once I had climbed to the top of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. Refreshing, light, with a bit of apple at the end of the taste. Very decent.
