COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - June to August 2013.
Note: Although the bottle is labelled 2.7%, its actually 2.8%, same as ther draught.

The goal was to create a beer with flavour, balance and body at only 2.8%, a Quarter IPA, QIPA if you will. Heavily hopped but with low bitterness this beer pops with notes of mango and grapefruit and is the perfect summer beer.

33cl bottle. Appearance: A Slightly hazy orange, with a full sized white head, with more then decent retention. Head leaves some lacing. Aroma: malts and citrus and grassy hops. Taste malts, hops, light to moderately bitter,citrus,mango, grass and pale malts, quite tasty for its ABV, only a hint of watery splash in the bitter finish.

330 ml bottle, as Siren Half Mast, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 2.8%. Pale golden colour, large white head. Lovely hoppy aroma of spruce tips, pine needles, tropical fruits and citrus. Light bodied as expected, but has plenty of flavour. The hoppy flavour is quite dry, with distinct piney notes, also citrus (esp. grapefruit) and some tropical fruits. Very bitter aftertaste.

on tap at Beer Geek. Hazy golden color with medium quickly disappearing head. Aroma: grapefruit, orange, zesty. Taste: citrus, light resins, orange juice. Light body, soft carbonation. Moderate bitterness with loads of fruitiness. Quit full in taste for such low ABV.

AndreasP (190) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2016
Grape fruit and tropical fruits but also a strange smell resembling sulphour but maybe just yuzu or an other bitter citrus fruit. Not foul at all in the taste but as expected thin and almost watery. A beer should be more full-bodied but a fun experience
