J’étais très curieux de gouter cette bière... Mais, j’aurais du m’en douter, j’ai été déçu! Il y a certains arômes et saveurs intéressants, mais elle est trop sucrée, ça gache l’expérience. On a aussi l’impression de notes "artificielles"... Je ne suis pas du tout convaincu.

Franckg (1179) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2016 Arômes de citron, malt légèrement caramélisé, un peu de pamplemousse et légères traces de Galaxy par son côté fruits sucrés (mangue et fruit de la passion) En bouche, citron, gazon, malt caramelisé et légèrement terreux, pamplemousse, un peu de litchi. Ressemble à leur blonde standard mais avec un petit peu de houblons exotiques. Mauvaise utilisation du Galaxy. Ce dernier n’est pas vraiment mis en valeur et c’est dommage. Reste quand même la meilleure de leur gamme "houblonnée".

Can shared. Hazy gold pour thin white head. Aroma is fruity, light tropical notes, soft bready malt aromas. Flavor is a bit dull, soft grainy flavors light grassiness sweet. Palate is light bodied, almost watery with light carbonation. Decent for who makes it.

Bamsen78 (5031) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, fruit and yeast, wuth mild citric touches. Citric flavour with bitter notes of metal and hops and fruity and malty touches. Estery and acidic aftertaste. Drinkable but a poor example of the style.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
A clear, dark golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lightly malty and bready, with a touch of grass and metal. Some fruity, piney hops and some canned tropical fruits. It’s full to medium bodied, semi-sweet and with a nice carbonation level. Some bitterness going on, but I’d like more to deal with the malts. Grass, pine cones and tropical fruits too. Medium length finish. Lacks on bitterness this one, else it’s a decent one. I’d prefer it less malty though. 150615

Smooth very smooth, like a English bitter that has a mild extra bite to it. Nice deep golden color and a creamy head. Noticeable bitter but not overwhelming ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
