3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves reasonable lacing. Fresh citrus and leafy hops notes mix with light white bread malt and floral rosehip notes to create the aroma. Zesty lemon and lime hops up front give way to white bread and caramel malt in the mid-palate. Mild floral bitterness from the rosehips combines with leafy hops to finish. This is not the most complex beer out there, but it is one of the most refreshing, with enough about it to maintain a bit of interest too.

2nd November 2013
Light haze on this pale gold beer, good white head. Crispy palate. Light malt base, touch of cream. Light citrus, nice orange, grapefruit and mild lemon. Nice sweetish floralness. Something else fruity as well, the rosehips most likely. Light finish. Tasty and very drinkable. Pleasingly floral - fruity.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A lot going on here. Points for the exceptionally floral aroma. A little too much from the rose hips to be enjoyable. Leaves an odd taste in my mouth.

Strong floral & citrus notes in the aroma. Taste is similar with a great hoppy finish, but pleasantly without excessive bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy yellow. Aroma of fruit with tart astringency and dusty flowers. Taste is like a tincture; medicinal and planty. Some yeast and honey flavors. Acidic. Not my thing.
