Golden in color, this beer is very fragrant, with a nose that combines citrus, mixed tropical fruit, and floral notes. The white head of foam looks nice and it does leave a good deal of lace as you consume.

The taste of this beer is about in- line with the nose. It is fruity and tangy from the hops, with flavors of lemongrass, orange, and grapefruit dominating. Search a little more and you will taste flavors such as honey, bread, pale malt, and some pine. The hops are definitely present, there is no doubt about that. But the overall flavor is not over- hopped by any means and most will find it enjoyable and highly drinkable.

This Real Ale beer is a tasty one and the hops help make it and enjoyable brew. It seems like it would go very well with certain cheeses and its fruity component makes it a good refresher for a summer day- something I wouldn’t normally say for a hoppier than average beer. But this one is definitely one to try and enjoy and I recommend grabbing a six pack or two if you can find it.
