Seffle (314) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from Tesco, nb 4.5% Light golden with rather firm white head. Very fruity first taste with a clear tange of strawberry. Later on more citrus and a very slight bitterness. Quite nice and thirstquenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (4727) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear pale golden body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts and massive amounts of buttery diacetyl tones. Holy Macaroni, it ain’t often you get this much diacetyl in a commercial beer; these guys must have been in a hurry to bottle! :-P Taste is pale malts, red berries, grass and still loads of sweet, buttery diacetyl tones. Not good. Light body and carbonation. By far the worst for me so far, from this otherwise rather capable Scottish brewery.

Th head is robust, the body golden. It smells a bit hoppy, sweet and mild. The taste is mild, sweet, malty, a little bit boring. 12/10/9/9/11/9

Bottle. Slightly hazy golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma of sugary malt with notes of lemon. A bit muddy, sugary taste. Sticky feel.

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2013
£1.70 from Tesco for 500ml:
Biscuit and grain with a grassy hops aroma and a few malts thrown in as well. It is quite floral and refreshing with a few mild fruits and a little citrus too.
Golden colour with a centimetre tall, bubbly white head on top and a clear body. Retention is not bad, it only reduces a fraction in the opening minutes.
Biscuit malts, grassy hops and some light apple to begin, there is also some grain and grassy hops in there along with some mild fruit and a touch of citrus from the nose.
Medium bodied with carbonation about the same, the beer is refreshing and it feels slightly creamy too with a light bitter finish.

A nice lager taste with some light malts and a few fruits coming through as well that managed to give it a little bit of depth and something slightly different. This was one that went down fairly well and would make a good session lager.

rosenbergh (8580) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2012
500 ml bottle. 4.5%. Lot #136. BBE 03/13. (Prisma) Tampere, Finland. Cloudy golden colour with small to average sized greyish white head. Piney and citrusy hops and malt in aroma. Flavour is mildly citrusy and grassy hoppy and balancing malty. Mild bitterness. Quite alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
