COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach,orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 From cask. Pours hazy orange with no head. Aroma is distinctly grapefruit. No carbonation. Fruity flavour, grapefruit. Reminds me most of a grapefruit juice than a beer. Finish has some peach notes and a mild bitterness as well. Had this gone bad? I don’t think it was meant to taste so dull.6-2-6-3-11=2.8

50 cL can, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours hazy orange with a diminished white head. Dense hoppy and bitter aroma with a solid peachy/citrusy aroma. Bitter and solid fruity flavoured with a mild peachy note. Bitter and fruity finish. Quite crisp and nicely hopped.7-3-8-3-15=3.6

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer, small off white head. Palate is light, superfine carbonation. Neutral malt. Slighy floral note and light orangey citrus. Finishes softish and semi dry. Mild minerals. Flirting with bland but okay.

harrisoni (13884) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Can at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. I love these Surly canned beers. Copper colour, lasting beige head. Lots of hops on aroma. Good leafy hop, but it doesn’t stand up in the mouth. Some toffee on the malts. Dies a bit after that good pink grapefruit aroma. Goes to show it takes a lot of skill to make a tasty lower ABV beer.
