Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Deep gold in colour with a short-lived white head and moderate carbonation. tropical fruit aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a suggestion of pine. Flavour had more fruit, solid, biscuity malts, leading to a dryish, slightly peppery finish. Enjoyable.

355ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (6+:3:6-:3:13=3.1)
Pale orange. Fruity hop aroma, citrussy. Refreshing palate. Nice citrus tangerine zesty taste. Malts decent too. Simple, but delicious. Good for a golden ale, not a weak beer, a proper nice bitter, just modernised a bit.
