COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle - Pasteurised.

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.

Kauge (1055) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle from Selver in Tallinn. BB 30.04.2016. Pours a near clear pale straw colour with a big, fluffy, white head. Good lace and retention. Very subtle, slightly lemony aroma with a bit of yeast and floral hoppiness, plus mayble digestive biscuits. The taste is characterised by a slight lemon, it’s quite rounded and well-balanced between sweet and modest bitterness, which together with the dry palate works nicely. Peanuts note. Light and easy-drinking, except for the somewhat - thin, yes, but - aggressive carbonation. Despite being 5 months until its BB, it still feels very fresh. A nice quaffer. Wouldn’t mind having a few of these to accompany some chat in the pub.

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.
