COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
"Golden beer with a fresh crisp finish. Specially brewed to be served cooler."
Light and refreshing with a low present gravity as most of the sugars are converted into alcohol. The key note pink grapefruit comes from the Cascade hop. Some First Gold hop in the boiling copper gives a refreshing bitterness. Easy drinking with loads of flavour.

Oelbas (274) - - AUG 6, 2014
Helt klar lys gylden med et rimelig holdbart hvidt skum. Duften er præget af blomster og maltsødme med en antydning af metal. Smagen er medium fyldig med malt, let syrlighed og en smule citrus. Eftersmagen er svagt bitter med ellers sødlig.

Pale clear golden color with small white head. Grain aroma. Light bitter taste with light body. Drinkable.

Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - APR 11, 2017
Bottle from Trinkgut, Münster, NRW, Germany!
Pours clear copper with a flat head. Flat smell of caramel and floral hops. Taste is bitter, malty, grassy. Not much Cascade hops noticeable. Not bad, but overall too flat!

mulander (143) - POLAND - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled 330l. Pours in clear yellow with a minimal white foam. Lively carbonated with a medium body and an oily texture. Aroma of champagne, weak, some malts. Lightly sweet in taste, frizzly with a short lightly sour finish.

AVLarsen (146) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Typical lager of the British tradition - low carbonation. Nice and malty but not my favorite.

JtanK (485) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Old review before making ratebeer account. Incredibly average. Cascade hops are real neat, but if somebody told me it’s just water with cascade hops, I’d believe them - that’s just how dry and watery it is.

klukas (225) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JAN 29, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a English pint glass. Appearance: Deep golden colour, with thin head. Aroma: Fruits (apple, pineapple, …) Palate: Thin, watery body; low carbonation. Taste: Mixture of sweetness and bitterness, some coriander, apple and citrus notes; dry aftertaste. Overall impression: Interesting, but not my kind.

lupuLust (246) - Franke(n) im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
Lagerish yeast taste. Clean crisp refreshing golden ale. Appears sadly without any head.

Towey1989 (2457) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, slight grapefruit, some fruit, a little apple and subtle floral hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some grain, slight fruit, a little apple, a hint of chalk and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A soft, lightly citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Crisp and refreshing but very bland and boring. Citrusy but slightly applely. Below average.

veceo (1362) - Pula, CROATIA, - DEC 27, 2016
Clear yellow color, average sized white head. Boring grainy aroma, almost macrolagery. Light caramel malt around pretty watery texture and that’s about it. Pretty boring experience.
