3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Yellow golden with small white and almost non-existing head. Nose : skunky and citrusy aromas with notes of bread and hay. Sip : water like density with good carbonation. Sparkling and foamy texture while swallowing. Dry notes of hay and pale malts. Corn. Citrus dry. It's ending with sour and bitter notes. Bitterness is delicate. The beer is a thirst quencher. Nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear light golden colour, small white head and a fair bit of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and a little bit of toffee. A strange flavour, somewhat malty with hops, caramel and hints of spice. Not great on the palate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden blond, light carbonation. The hops in the aroma are a bit skunky. Flavour is rather muted at first. There’s a light citrus edge and some bready malt just prior to the medium bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, see through yellow/orange beer with a white head. Some toffee, caramel, bread, roasted coffee (like in the air around a coffee factory) and citrus notes on the nose. Smells very nice. The body is light and watery. Mouth feel is soft and round. The hops is about the same quality as in a normal pils. A bit buttery. Some caramel. Slight grassy bitterness. The aroma promised something a lot better and more interesting. This one’s rather dull disappointingly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden colour with small head and decent lacing. Aroma is a little grassy and lemon hops. Taste is of mild citrus hops, pale lager malts, grain and floral notes. Too carbonated for my liking. Drinkable but uninteresting.
