This is a very pale, straw coloured ale, that uses a special malt to produce a pronounced ‘peach-like’ 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.

MarkoNm (1746) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 5, 2015
Pours a clear and very pale golden color, topped with a minimal white head. Mild malty aroma, some pleasant hoppy notes also present. Taste starts with a moderate sweetness, very watery and light, but with a surprising bitterness in the finish and enough taste. Not that bad.

yngwie (15569) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A lighlty hazy beer topped by a small, white head. It’s lightly fruity on the nose, piney and with some butterscotch notes. It’s 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. It’s not off in any way, but it’s not very interesting either. 140815
