A light easy drinking beer and at just over 4% abv the perfect companion to a Sunday lunch. Loads of cascade hops give this beer plenty of flavour and aroma.

aleksander9 (884) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 -bottle at circus circus, gateway. Half price on pasta! - pours a hazy copper. Little aroma of some fruity yeast, cardboard, sour green apples and some caramel. Spritzy and watery palate. Aftertaste is fruity yeast, boiled vegetables, sour green apples and a very dry cardboard finish. Overall: meh. It has to many off flavours. Would choose a generic lager over this one.

Fruity esters and huge amounts of late addition hops dominates the aroma. Very clear, beautiful Amber, not great had retention though. Flavor does not seem like a 4.5% beer! Caramel, citrus, with a slightly spicy finish. Very enjoyable.

Oakes (13659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
Amber and a bit dull-looking. No head. The aroma is basically dull caramel and crystal malt. Taste is similar, with a little bit of dryness in the finish.

jolo (1003) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle 550 ml. A clear pale yellow colour with a medium high white head. An aroma of malt, grass and hops. The taste is light sweet and light bitter. A medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation and a medium long duration.
