Bottle - Pasteurised.

This is a very pale, straw coloured ale, that uses a special malt to produce a pronounced Ďpeach-likeí element to the aroma and palate, which is complemented by a floral hop character.
Brewed using a blend of traditional Fuggle, Golding and Bramling Cross hops.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A lighlty hazy beer topped by a small, white head. Itís lightly fruity on the nose, piney and with some butterscotch notes. Itís fruity and lightly flowery and grassy on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Medium body.Some bitterness, especially towards the end. Nothing special going on here. Itís not off in any way, but itís not very interesting either. 140815

500 ml bottle bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Clear light golden honey colour; One finger head and crumpety white foam which lasted for 90 seconds; Good sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Aroma of malt, with honey, molasses, very light peaches, light caramel, light yeast and thin grass; Close to light sweet taste of light malt, with light caramel, faint peaches, very light grapefruit zest, light metallic, tart notes, light bread, strong lemon and bitter grassy hops; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is fairly refreshing light Ale - fair maltyness thinned but wheat with distinct tart notes. Caramel, sweetness and breadyness are fairly light, with light zesty and peachy hops take over. Nice and easy!... Hoppiness is light honey, light peaches and thin grass in nose. Thin zesty grapefruit , peaches and strong lemon in taste; Bitterness is moderate for a pretty long, quite astringent finish; Quite dry after taste. Zesty and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: Unlike other malty and caramel-heavy Theakson Ales, this one is lighthearted and refreshing, with good wheatyness, and right blend of citrusy hops to give the taste a good jump. Absolutely perfect for Summer and a real thirst quencher. Yay!
