COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

BlackHaddock (6789) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
500ml bottle between three on an Irish tasting evening at home on 11th Nov 2016. Pale golden orange with a decent sized white crown on each glass. Citrusy leanings throughout, grapefruit esters in the nose, lemon and grapefruit in the flavour. Not really my thing, fed up with light golden citrus flavoured brews to be honest. Scored objectively.

JorgeLee (1943) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2016
Bottle, picked up in Ireland at Ellen’s wedding. Light golden colour, quite a clean, basic malt bill. Dry. Quite hoppy, kind of generic crafty c hops, but decently bitter and a bit citrusy. A little over fizzy for me. Some slightly fruity yeasty notes, I don’t mind that. Simple but enjoyable pint.

Bottle on holiday. Pours light orange-amber. Slightly cloudy with foamy head. Overpoweringly bitter and without nuanced aroma but somewhat citrus aftertaste.

Gyllenbrunt med lavt skum. Noe frukt i duften sammen med karamell. Lite annet enn bitterhet i smaken. Veldig ordinær.
