Cor laranja, com media formação de espuma e persistência. Aroma de casca de laranja, abacaxi doce, um pouco herbal. No sabor, cítrico, com médio amargor bem balanceado com o dulçor. Muito refrescante e fácil de beber. Muito boa.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold colour with a foamy white head. Toast, caramel, candy aroma. It’s OK - some pear, toffee, light sponge cake. Mild lemony bitterness. Fine. amfawcett (4) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013 does not count
a real surprise this and will definitely try again. Grassy hops with a citrus spice. Refreshing and so well balanced. Best new brew i’ve tasted in a while and a bit of a revelation. MartinT (9852) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This quenching Golden Ale projects peppery and citrusy hops onto wet straw and honey before herbal hop bitterness balances everything out.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear gold.
-The flavour profile is well structured and balanced.
-Drinkability is optimal; I somehow believe this would have been better, more polished, on cask.
-The hop character is bright and delicate.
