COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"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."

500 mL bottle poured. A pale golden, slight haze pour. Tons of foam head and lacing. Bottle brought back from Scotland, though unfortunately I wasn't the one who was there to bring it back. Aroma is a nice balance of malt and citrus like character. Refreshing. Malt fronted flavor. Light beer, but plenty of flavor. Love the citrus going on. Very fun try.

Pours a thick frothy head that gives way to a thin cap. Leaves some dirty lacing. Has a clear golden appearance. Mild citrus aromas as well as sweet bready malts with hints of toffee and caramel. Mild fruity flavours abound, some grapes, oranges, herbal hops as well as sweet toasty and bready malts. Very faint notes of caramel. Slick sensation with light bodied mouthfeel. Slightly faint carbonation. Medium finish with some light sweetness on the palate. Pretty good and very affordable for a 500ml bottle.
