tfredvik (1751) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2016
Crystal clear golden body with a large, creamy, white, very long-lived head that settles as a fully lasting layer of foam, excellent lacing. Quite strong and pale lager-like aroma of pale malt, wet hay and faint fruits, with some citrus in the back. Moderate flavour that follows the aroma. Light sweet taste with light to moderate bitter grassy finish. Light and dry on the palate. Zzzzzzz.

Grzesiek79 (3999) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Jak na globalne piwo to jest super. Bardzo wytrawne pachnace wyraznie aromatycznym chmielem, Jasne slody, jasny kolor i biala spora pianka, srednio trwala ale zachowujaca fajny aromat piwa. W smaku niby delikatne, ale porzadnie chmielne i wytrawny dlugi finisz. Butelka i etykieta to pelna elegancja

I was disappointed as I thought it would be a hearty pale ale that would rival the craft brews, it was good but not great.
