COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"Bottled with approximately 1/3rd less Carbon Dioxide than most beers. This results in a fresher more natural tasting beer. Combines Hallertau Hersbrcker with Challenger. Late hopped with Styrian Goldings, which gives a sharpness like the twist of a lemon."

TheKernOwl (207) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Different elements in this. In some ways, a warped version of Schiehallion. Similar in profile; nose somehow slightly spicier (coriander) / more citrus (grapefruit/blood orange)? Hint of lemon-y seawater, like a sour beer, on the way out. V, v light too.

SvanteL (385) - SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2016
Guldgul. Brdig doft med lite citrus, lite malt och h. Maltig smak med aningen rtighet, skaplig beska som ligger kvar lnge. Frvnansvrt fyllig med tanke p den ringa alkoholstyrkan, men just snt kan de p de brittiska arna.

LazyPyro (737) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, little grainy too. Fresh. Slightly sweet flavour of hops and malt, with a little lemony citrus bitterness at the end. A little milder than I expected but a nice beer.

Kurzreview via untappd: Tut was der Stil sagt. Fr mich msste die caramellige Ssse nicht sein. Aber sehr sffig und gut bitter fr sub 5%

nickd717 (4365) - Sofia, BULGARIA - OCT 3, 2015
500ml bottle. Bright clear golden color with a lasting white head. Grassy, grainy, leafy aroma. The flavor is distinctly British, with wet leaves, crisp pale malt, and a somewhat bitter finish. Lower end on the carbonation with a light, drinkable feel. Good for what it is.
