COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, regular
Full and rounded like an Indian new moon, this new breed is a modern twist on Indian Pale Ale. Jammed with fruity flavour and tantalising bitterness.

flying_pig (911) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi Supermarket, UK (£1.59):
Light on the nose with some light, earthy & grassy hops plus earthy malts & touches of bitterness. It’s pretty bog standard & not very interesting if I’m honest, it could have used a little something different in there to mix things up.
Light & clear looking, golden straw with a thin head that sits about at 1cm, holding well with very little movement over the opening minutes.
Earthy hops & malts, a slightly boozy taste & faint sweetness. The is some bitterness coming through as well and watery patches but not a lot else sadly, again it could have used a cutting edge.
Medium bodied & smooth although it was quite bland and almost watery in areas. There is a bitterness throughout & hints of sweetness but it really is quite a boring beer.

Not a bad beer exactly, it was just that is was a real disappointment & not really that enjoyable. The flavours were pretty 1-dimensional with not much more than some basic, earthy malts & hops.

zvsn (509) - ISRAEL - JUN 14, 2014
Clear golden with a small head. Aroma of grains and grass with some soapiness. Very grainy flavors with a harsh herbal bitterness, light maltiness comes out while it warms up. Light-bodied, low-med carbonation. Not good.

tomer (1647) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle, small creamy head, quite clear deepish golden colour, aroma of hay and grain with some flowers, aroma of hay and grain with a strong empathic herbal bitterness, nicely balanced and quite dry. Not too complex but still quite good.
