Kirkas, kullankeltainen olut kivalla kestävällä sentin tiiviillä ja pienikuplaisella vaahtokerroksella, joka jättää myös pitsiä. Tuoksu eksoottisen hedelmäinen, sitruksinen, mutta myös makean maltainen ja karamellinen. Maku eksoottisen hedelmäinen, havuinen ja maltaisen makea. Loppupuolella katkerampaa greippistä otetta. Melko täyteläinen runko, kuiva ja katkera jälkimaku. Lopussa havuisuutta ja pihkaa kivasti. Tässä on oikeastaan yllättävän hyvä liitto makeampaa karamellisuutta ja katkeraa pihkaista havuisuutta.

Deep golden body, white head. Aroma has some citrussy notes with little caramel. Bit grapefruit. Flavour has more complexity than aroma.

mR_fr0g (8934) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle at home picked up from beer gonzo. A slightly hazed bright golden orange coloured pour with a lasting sticky white head. Aroma is nice fresh zippy zesty lemon, woodland pine, soft white bread. Little orange rind on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of semi crisp bready grains, orange rind, pine, hint of cut grass. Crisp and a little mineral in the finish. Hides the 7% pretty well. Palate is medium light bodied, semi sweet with a crisp finish. Very well balanced and drinkable.

AlainG (1915) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Elle est bien pâle et absente de mousse.Odeur de mouffette et de moulée à chien. Saveurs plus intéressantes, quand même. Goût de satinage suivi d’une amertume qui voudrait épater la galerie, mais ça manque un peu de conviction. Elle ne me semble pas dans le style,mais encore là, c’est peut-être le style Anglais? Probablement que ces dernières ont mal été entreposées. (M.A. 24.11.16) (1864-300616)

500m, prijzige shit dit..... helder gouden met fijne witte kraag. aroma is vrij beperkt of het komt omdat ik hem vrij koud hem uitgeschonken. wat zoet, sinaasappel en citrus. Smaken zijn erg zacht, matig bitter, gras, mout, gist, erg moutig, citrus, den, gras, ingetogen... nee

Heidbummer (196) - SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2016
Pint (Bear State) at Jeremiah’s. A good solid full strength IPA. Pours orange with off white frothy head. Flowers and soap on the nose, repeated on the taste. Slightly greasy mouthfeel oddly, but doesn’t detract from a hefty full on IPA. Liked it.
