COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - SEP 8, 2001
Metallic, melon nose for this clear, yellow-brown ale. Sharp, slightly malty, alcoholic taste, there is too much carbonation for this to be smooth. Has a creamy head and drying quality, and is rather crisp with hints of dark fruit.
