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.

An ok pale ale. Earthy and a little more malt balance than I’d like. Grapefruit hops are nice, just light to moderate.

Keg, Beerdock, Crewe. Light & zesty pale gold beer. Grapefruit and orange aroma, plenty of tangy citrus in the taste, with subtle background caramel and biscuity malt. Some lemon sherbert in the finish. Tasty.

Keg at the Rake. Nose is basically Lipton Ice Tea from a can! Lemon and tea. Cloudy orange flavor. Flavor is lemon, tea, rich malt. Understated and nice.

Kita (1949) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, sampled from CanCrusher. Clear deep golden color with medium soapy white head and fair lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, pine and caramel. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and honey, follows by fruity and herbal notes, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Well balanced surprise from Ireland...
