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

jrodooo5 (1643) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - APR 9, 2016
Clean and crisp with an odd bitterness in the finish. Pours ok - gold with a thin white head & a tad bit of lacing. The aroma is primarily grainy and malty. The taste is clean until the odd bitter finish. It’s not bad for the style but not the greatest overall.

Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
500ml bottle. I didn’t find as much aroma as the label led me to believe, but this is a smooth session ale, not bad at all.

Golden yellow with a slight haze and a white head. Aroma is critus hops. Taste is bitter and hops. Definitely a pale ale.

BeerNinjaUK (463) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours pale yellow with watery white head which rapidly dissipates. Aroma is light with fresh fruitiness - slight tangerine. Taste is fresh with good level of bitterness. Level of carbonation is good, overall a very refreshing and drinkable beer.

3.1
Vighals (3916) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2016
Lys brun klar med to fingre høyt hvitt skum. Lukter fløtekaramell og honning. Lett. Søtlig karamell i smak. Rene fine smaker. Svært lett og kort bitterhet i avslutningen.

2.8
VDuquerroux (1650) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Christmas gift. A golden orange sparkling beer ; few bubbles ; medium white head with a poor retention. Caramel, herb, light floral, lemon. Medium dry bitter refreshing ; sweet note. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, short bitter floral finish. Overall, ok hoppy bitter ale ; refreshing but as expected ; a little sad.

3.3
nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 26, 2016
Pours clear golden with short-lived white head. Malty aroma, light citric. Sweet with light bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, refreshing. Pleasant ale.

3.7
TheKernOwl (214) - 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.
