Special pale ale, referment, non filtr, non pasteuris. Trois crales: orge, froment et avoine. Houblonn au citra. Niveau abv de 4,1%. Et, comme dit son brasseur: hoppy, fresh and light. Exemplaire 9 mois dge. Couleur jaune citronn, la clart nette, pure. Bulles fines par centaines, comme un perl de champagne. Superbe. Mousse dun blanc pur, paisse, texture ferme en haut. Sublime. Armes avec les tropiques en direct par les fruits, et lAngleterre par les bls dor. Magnifique. 1re bouche souple la sublime entame malt/houblon, forte dominante houblon. Arrire-bouche pointue, fine, prcise, longue. 2me avec ce magnifique houblon quest le citra. Arrire-bouche longue, fine et galement complexe. 3me au superbe ensemble malt/houblon. Arrire-bouche divine. Longueur qui explore toutes les nuances du houblon. Jambes fines, bien marques. Levure fine et prcise, belle ligne. Alcool lger, mais tout fait adquat pour prserver le citra. Finale lgante, race. CONCLUSION: pale ale non seulement spcial, mais idal comme le palais du facteur Cheval .. Blague part, un extraordinaire pale ale

One of the best beers that I have been drunk. Aroma of fruits and grass. Fruits are in taste too. Also some caramel, floral and herbs. Lightly carbonated.

Not sure why this was retired... lovely fresh mango aroma with perhaps a hint of cat urine which thankfully doesnt cross into the taste with is pure mango sorbet with a hint of lime. Sweet finish to this golden beer.

Big bit of spicy citrus from the aroma up front, flavour is full of grapefruit and more citrus. Clean sharp bitter flavours. A really nice ale this. Reminds me a lot of the stone and wood just for the flavour punch.

tamaritelmago (15) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2013
en aroma lupulo y mas lupulo. muy ctrica (ser por eso que el lupulo usado se llama Citra...). en sabor muy lupulada (otra vez) amarga y seca, lo que unido a su poco cuerpo la convierte en una cerveza de sesin excelente.

Esaltazione del luppolo!!! Birra di una freschezza, leggerezza e facilit di beva fuori dal comune che la annovera tra le SESSION di alto livello!!! Lunico difetto lo denotiamo sullanalisi visiva visto che il colore giallo arancio non sovrastato da nessuna schiuma. Al naso sentori erbacei ed agrumati si ritrovano anche in bocca, perfettamente bilanciato con il finale amaro. Buonissima!!!

Draught cask at Craft Beer Co Cov Garden. Really great condition cask pour. Bright golden colour. Gentle citrus hop aromas, nice clean crisp finish - everything a good sessionable cask ale should be (IMHO!)

Golden ale perfectly in style: low-medium body; medium bitterness (about on 35 IBU); surely hop-oriented, it has aromas mainly of exotic fruits and slightly citric but with a strong herbaceous and earthy base on a dry and clean finish. The low alcohol content (4.1%) makes it pleasant and invigorating without any collateral effects. The balance between the flavors makes the palate pleased but letting you slightly unsatisfied, just a little bit, which is a virtue: not cloying, not too watery. Taken when I was about to collapse from the heat, I am not exaggerating when I say it brought me back to life. Perfect for your seaside holidays as to the mountains. Highly recommended to all. Golden ale perfettamente in stile: corpo medio-basso senza per questo essere watery; amara il giusto (ad occhio sui 35 IBU); ovviamente hop-oriented con aromi prevalentemente di frutta esotica e leggermente citrici ma con una decisa base erbacea ed earthy su un finale secco e pulito. Il basso contenuto alcolico (4,1%) la rende piacevole e corroborante senza affatto picchiare in testa e lazzeccatissimo equilibrio tra i sapori appaga il palato pur facendotene desiderare un altro po, ma giusto un pochetto, il che, a mio avviso, un pregio: non come alcune birre stucchevoli, tipicamente nordeuropee, che scocciano al secondo sorso, non come altre che scorrono nel gargarozzo senza lasciare nulla di s neanche dopo due secchiate. Presa ad ora di pranzo in un momento in cui stavo per collassare dal caldo, non esagero quando dico che mha riportato in vita. Perfetta tanto al mare quanto in montagna. Consigliatissima a tutti.
