Kirkas, kullankeltainen olut kivalla kestvll sentin tiiviill ja pienikuplaisella vaahtokerroksella, joka jtt mys pitsi. Tuoksu eksoottisen hedelminen, sitruksinen, mutta mys makean maltainen ja karamellinen. Maku eksoottisen hedelminen, havuinen ja maltaisen makea. Loppupuolella katkerampaa greippist otetta. Melko tytelinen runko, kuiva ja katkera jlkimaku. Lopussa havuisuutta ja pihkaa kivasti. Tss on oikeastaan yllttvn hyv liitto makeampaa karamellisuutta ja katkeraa pihkaista havuisuutta.

mR_fr0g (10365) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle at home picked up from beer gonzo. A slightly hazed bright golden orange coloured pour with a lasting sticky white head. Aroma is nice fresh zippy zesty lemon, woodland pine, soft white bread. Little orange rind on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of semi crisp bready grains, orange rind, pine, hint of cut grass. Crisp and a little mineral in the finish. Hides the 7% pretty well. Palate is medium light bodied, semi sweet with a crisp finish. Very well balanced and drinkable.

AlainG (2080) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Elle est bien ple et absente de mousse.Odeur de mouffette et de moule chien. Saveurs plus intressantes, quand mme. Got de satinage suivi dune amertume qui voudrait pater la galerie, mais a manque un peu de conviction. Elle ne me semble pas dans le style,mais encore l, cest peut-tre le style Anglais? Probablement que ces dernires ont mal t entreposes. (M.A. 24.11.16) (1864-300616)
