3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle: My initial drink of this beer felt like I had taken an enormous swig of Billy Bee honey straight from the honey bear. However, much like Ekstra this beer grew on me as I made my way to the bottom of the glass. Very nice hops and malts blend to produce a nice flavour. Finishes sweet but not in an offensive way. All around a very satisfying brew

Very pleasant grainy nose and flavor. Not outstanding was this light colored lager, but very nice and presumably very good fresh on tap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: POured mellow-yellow with a foamy white head. The aroma is quite sweet and soapy, like dish detergent. Presents itself as a bit stronger than 5.2%, a tad warming. But overall, this drinks quite smooth in the Euro-lager tradition ... a tad biscuity, but in a very mellow balanced way, with a kiss of continental hop at the finish. Underrated. (#3223, 11/29/2007)

Fruity, floral and malty. Grassy hops. I was rather surprised by this. Looked rather thick when I poured it into my pint.

Originally rated May 2005. Good foamy lacing and the creamy-fizz head has average retention. The colour of this brew is golden, but with a touch of amber. Quite nice. At first, I could smell euro malt, but then the hop became predominant. Crisp mouthfeel. Smooth start, going to a slight bitter finish. Biscuit afteraste. Non-repulsive lager.

Pours cloudy, bubbly gold with a tall, frothy, white head.
Aroma is malt, grain, honey.
Taste is sweet grain, malt, fruit, apple.
Very smooth and full of flavour...
Quite good, actually.

Sweet malt, hazy golden, medium head. Candied lemon/butterscotch flavour. Good tartness, a very tasty lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500ml bottle) Pours a huge, foamy, white head and a well carbonated, light golden body. As tbone mentions below, the lager laces nicely on the glass and the head has staying power. The nose gives a lemon and floral scent, slightly lactic and sweet. Fairly fizzy on the roof on ones mouth. A honey sweetness coupled with a perfume with a quick, sharp bitterness then finish. As it warms up - it gets a fuzzy banana flavour to it. I kind of liked it? Above average.

This was an interesting one. Aroma was a bit week, at least I couldn’t make much of it. The flavor, though, was surprisingly pretty good. Definite fruity touch to it and it was fairly sweet, but not filled with a bunch of adjuncts. I’d go back to this as a nice summer lager.
