Cristobal37 (394) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Doesn’t look like much. Next to nothing in terms of aroma. Very light malty lager. Cereal flavor and light malts. Drop of dry hops. Nevertheless it’s enjoyable to sip on over a bit of footie.

kto (223) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2015
nice bottle; pours clear light yellow with a persistent white head and a nice lacing. malty, metallic, slightly floral aroma. some sweetness in the beginning, long finish with a bready aftertaste which is not present in the beginning. rather bitter for an export (which is nice).

King_Alex_II (675) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Clear golden color with some foam. The smell is malty and hoppy (European hoppy). The taste is fresh and combines a solid malt body with a regular European hoppy bitterness. Nothing special, but definitely not bad. Solid beer with a good price value ratio.

ianwelby (770) - SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Clear, yellow beer with a thin bubbly head and a light, bitter bready smell. Flavour is a touch bready too but with a slightly sour, slightly sweet lemon flavour in there as well. This isn’t anything special but it’s got a couple of distinct flavours, it’s crisp and it’s refreshing.

djoeye (2549) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; bubbling pearl white head and bright yellow golden body, beautiful label. Aroma; toffee, malts, faint grass, grapes. Taste; grassy hops, caramel malts, leaves, more grass, fruits, orange notes - leading to a mostly soft finish, grassy hops and modest light malts. Normal texture and carbonation. Overall a fruity impression, felt quite good in the mouth and fruity gentleness to the taste buds. [50cl brown bottle 5.6%abv BB08-08-2015 Greetings to Bierothek in Bamberg DE, T@Ferie2015]

500ml bottle from 1420, León. @home 30-07-2015.
BBD: 09/2015.
In short: clean helles.
Pours quite clear golden with nice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty, grassy nose. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is grassy, mild bitterness, some sharp mouthfeel that then becomes more malty, with a clean palate. Ends rather sweet. Nice and enjoyable.

Very light citrus nose, slight hay aroma. Very standard appearance, pale, golden, medium body, very easy to drink, not going to blow your nuts off but really enjoyable!
