COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 18/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Little cloudy yellow to bright orange beer, thick creamy white adhesive head. Aroma: clearly distinctive hop aroma, yeast note, little bit sweet and malty, but just a tiny bit. MF: nicely balanced carbon, creamy soft texture, full body. Taste: mild and gentle hop flavour, dense malts, citrus fruits and spices. Aftertaste: balanced dry hoppiness, fruits, citrus and pepper.

Clear yellowish-orange, very carbonic. Very fine white creamy head that stays on for a long time. Some flakey sediment floating around on the carbon bubbles. In the nose some citrus. Full and bitter taste, very bitter dry aftertaste, yet very pleasing.

degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010
From a 750ml bottle. Poured a hazy yellow with notable sediment (not a drawback, as far as I’m concerned). Earthy and citrus notes on the nose -- specifically lemon and a little bit of hay. Yeasty, light, very carbonated, and very hops-bitter for the style. Nice.

evergreen0199 (3487) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle. Fresh hoppy, citrus aroma. Clear golden pour with a fine white head. Quite bitter, citrus fruit, malt, dry tasting. This brewery always produces quality complex ales. Nice one.

3.7
Travlr (26065) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bright golden color with large white head that settles slowly to the edges, good lacing. Lots going on here, with flowers, spice and grass. Refreshing and malty, good spices throughout. Body is OK, medium I guess. Easy to drink, nice addition to the style.

3.8
Jade (435) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2010
Pors a beautiful clear golden colour. More highly carbonated then other light ales. Aroma tinged with citrus, tart scents. Bitter to the taste with a citrus edge. Very nice beer.

KyotoLefty (10675) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2009
Light blonde color, a bit cloudy, with a tall head. Yeasty aroma with spice, citrus, and hops. Medium sweet flavor, a bit fruity, with citrus and grainy malt character. Ok hops. Decent but not really exciting. Good balance, though.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle, 33 cl. Blonde-golden beer with yeast flakes overall in the glass, medium white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus and grassy. Rather promising for the rest of the beer. The taste disappoints a bit however: it’s a fresh beer, spicy and hoppy with a light bitter, grassy aftertaste. After a while also the alcohol becomes prominent. Overall is the beer well balanced. The taste isn’t bad, but is also nothing special.

2.5
Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2009
33 cl botle, golden colour with stable white head. Smell: hoppy and citrus. Taste: yeasty, raw potatoes and alcohol. Not a bad beer but it’s nothing ’special’.
