Dejlig smag, med et strejf af citron. Flot farve, men mangler lidt dybde i smagen.

Botella de 500ml. Vaso Guinness de Pinta. Color latón y apariencia cristalina. Corona blanca con bastante buena retención. Aromas de maltas pálidas, sutil tostado, naranja y cítricos. Sabor de leve tostado, trazos de fruta tropical y amargor floral al primer sorbo. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada/suave. Textura algo aguada. En el intermedio, notas de pulpa de naranja, piel cítrica, pomelo y frambuesa. Final seco y dulce. Retrogusto afrutado. Trago fácil y aconsejable en una buena sesión cervecera.

From bottle this pours a pale golden amber with head which instantly fizzles away. There isn’t much in the way of aroma to be honest, slightl malt citrus. Taste is mild, slightly citrusy and malty with enough hop bitterness to keep me interested leading to a refreshingly dry finish. Above average and certainly drinkable!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco. Amber beer with medium head and a touch of lacing. Aroma of hops and orange citrus. Taste is oranges, citrus hops, caramel and some malts to balance it all out. Nice bottle.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tempo. Clear golden. A little fruity hoppiness and limestone in the nose, stale bitter taste - like English bottled beer. Light body, slightly malty and dry finish.

High carbonation so the head disappeared instantly and violently. Strong malty smell. Hoppy taste with a lasting bitterness.

Stronger caramel than colour would suggest. Little body. Does what the style requires, but this is not my style of beer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Golden with small head.
NOSE : toast bread with hay, some delicate lemon juice aromas.
SIP : water like body with delicate carbonation. Oily texture. The beer has a delicate malt presence. Mostly toasted bread like. Hops are well balanced and provide a delicate dry middle. Further one the beer gets more bitter. it is still a delicate bitterness but taking the delicate malt notes, it is fairly paired. Aftertaste is herbal and earth like.
OVERALL : easy to drink and well balanced. Very light flavor though. Another ale that can compete with a lager for the lack of taste.
