Bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Circa’ Xmas 2012. Hazy gold pour. Glorious juicy citrus aroma. Similarly fruit and hop laden flavour that certainly punched its weight. Bitterness gently understated. All in all this just oozed class.

javiercrasher (160) - Granada, SPAIN - JAN 13, 2013
De blanca y suave espuma que desaparece trago a trago. Amarillenta, muy pálida, aunque no transparente, sino oleosa. Suave aroma a cítricos (polemo sobre todo) y muy fresco. Cuerpo medio, y muy equilibrada, no hay presencia de sus 7 grados de alcohol. Ligeramente seca y amarga como la IPA que es, de nuevo se hacen presente el pomelo y la lima. Tan equilibrada, tan sin estridencias y tan suave que mientras te la vas tomando tomas conciencia de lo difícil que debe ser hacer una cerveza así. Tremenda!! Como siempre se agradecen informaciones complementarias, como la fecha de embotellado: 24-09-2012.
