COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This drinks like a good lager. Clean crisp & refreshing. Good for a hot summers day. Citrus is not overpowering and add a nice edge to it.

Bottle from the Co-op, on the train. The name is pretty accurate. Good bitterness and a citrus twist. Acceptable

CanCrusher (1178) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 20, 2017
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, golden color with minimal creamy, white head and low visible carbonation. Poor bready aroma, very lager-ish. Taste starts light bitter and reminds me of lagers. Finish has the same level of bitterness and if you're very careful, you'll find some very well hidden citruses. Not buying it again.

BeardedAvenger (1274) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2017
Based on memory as it was at a work event, Southbank. Floral V low key. Golden. Bubbly white head. Medium bitter..Citrus and herbs. Light bodied and n the thin side. Average carbonation. Low key finish. Decent gold - has some character to it. Just found that the aromatic side to it gave it a slightly odd taste. But still drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 500ml from bottle bought at Waitrose. Bitter but as the name suggests, but a twist: citric and floral aroma, and slightly hoppy

Iznogud (4692) - CROATIA - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml from Pivoljub. Shared with Max and JFK10000. Pours cloudy golden with medium white head. Malty, light hoppiness, bitter finish, bit nutty. Light bodied.

Bill Becker (2007) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 19, 2017
From Mar 2007 This one pours from 500ml bottle a clear medium gold with a medium size head of foam that shrinks slowly leaving a fine layer and there's lots of lacing. The smell is delicate. I note some citrus(mostly lemon) and some malt. The taste is nice. The flavour is a blance of citrusy hops and seet malt with the hops *just* having the edge. There's also some fruitness and a touch of sour in there but they sit mostly in the background. The finish has a nice lingering lemony flavour that leaves you wanting more. Bottom line: A very tasty Ale and at 4.2%abv, it is a great session beer. Good stuff.
