Review: Dark Star Sunburst

Dark Star Sunburst from Dark Star Brewing Company Limited
Rating: B

Appearance: Out of a cask, appears bright and light. Aptly named, it looks quite "sunny" in the glass. Smallish head, and poor retention, but decent lacing.

Smell: Refreshing hop aroma, but fades quickly and is thereafter replaced by a (somewhat boring) light honey note, which I often associate with bitters.

Taste: Fresh hops, nice, slightly sweet, solidly bitter backbone. Honey and citrus notes.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, good carbonation for style

Drinkability: Nice and sessionable. Another good brew from Dark Star.
