I enjoyed this a lot. It has a faintly sweet aroma, almost like toffee. A light caramel color, it appears to be almost non-carbonated but you can feel the light carbonation on the tongue. It’s a crisp beer that goes down easy, leaving a lasting but mild bitterness on the tongue. I could easily session this.

Brun/orange med tykt hvitt skum. Lukter malt, humle og sitrus. Tørr bitter smak med litt sitrus. Bra med kullsyre, kort bitter ettersmak.

StueyD (1069) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a thick white head. A light, grassy, citrusy hop aroma with a background maltiness. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter hop taste, pithy citrus fruit flavours, resinous and piney is mellowed by a caramel malt taste towards the end. The finish is bitter and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StuffWine (117) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Poured clear orange-amber with thin off-white head that lasted surprisingly well. Aroma simple of sweet orange citrus hops. Initial flavour malt then switching to plenty of bitter hops. Moderate length to finish, thin bodied though this seems correct for a bitter, but with a surprise of more fine carbonation than was expecting. Is ok

Bottle. Pours clear amber with an off white head. Aroma is floral, some caramel and some banana. Taste is light to moderate bitter and light sweet. Not too special but not too bad either. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottiglia comprata da Auchan Mestre. Bella schiuma cremosa e mediamente fine, che scende velocemente e con effetto sapone, bel colore ambrato e abbastanza limpido, aroma floreale, maltato, al palato corpo leggero e media carbonazione con note di pane tostato, noci, datteri, con finale amaro e secco abbastanza pulito e piacevole. Una discreta bitter.
