The beer starts malty, slightly sweet. The nice and floral hops appear very soon, but a still (for a lager) too sweet taste lies below them. The mainpart is nice bitter-floral with a (for my taste too) sweetish background. The aftertaste is long, nice floral-hoppy with a moderate bitterness. But in total for "not being an IPA" too sweetish.
Could be much more dry to keep the focus on the hops! --> 10/11/10/10

bottle, at some swanky bar in edinburgh. pale golden with a fair bit of fizz; sweet aroma with some pine and citrus; mild bitterness, somewhat artificial hop feel; i can see what they were trying to do but it doesn’t really work - quite cloying for such a low alcohol beer

Combinazione di stili un po’ deludente, che associa una base maltata da lager e una luppolatura erbacea che risulta decisamente smorzata, così come l’amaro. Non è certo spiacevole da bere, anche per la presenza indiscreta di qualche sfumatura citrica nel finale, ma tutto sommato la definirei una birra da sufficiente +.

Hmm not a bad combination of two different styles. It certainly comes across a bit lagery but with a dank grassy hoppy bitterness. I’m glad I have tried it but can’t see myself buying it again in a hurry.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Wasn’t sure what to expect from this but whatever it is it seems pretty average. Pours pale gold with smooth lemon citrus and orange pith, almost reminiscent of those fruity lagers of yore. It’s light and refreshing but also a little confused and lacks the bite of a good IPA. Not diggin this.

Both from bottle at keg. Pours amber, good carbonation. Aromas of roasted malts with some citrus fruits but mainly lemon. Sweet up front with a citrus dry bitter finish. If i walked in to a strange pub and found this i’d be chuffed.
