Color - golden-copper, light amber. Foam - white, barely noticeable, fleeting. Fragrance - shades of fragrant hops, flowers, dried fruit, pears - like lemonade duchess. Carbonation - just above comfortable. Taste - slightly oily, bitter hops, citrus, honey. Bitter decent but not the best in its class.

zenkis (549) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 22, 2013
Pours cloudy amber-coppery with white top, medium lasing. Aroma is weak hoppy, piney with time becomes more malty, some toasted malt tones. Taste is light sweet with average+ bitter, pleasant aftertaste with herbal-piney hoppy notes. Flavor seems a bit too simply at the beginning, but with persistent aftertaste becomes more pleasant. Medium body, watery and a bit slicky texture, average carbonation, long mild herbal-bitter aftertaste. Nice bitter, mild, not sharp and maybe too simple flavor to me, but I wonder where are those "heavily loaded dry hops" ?

Philym (944) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Appearance: Clear amber with 2 finger thick white head. Aroma: Lemon, floral, grassy/hay, bread/biscuit. Taste: Medium bitterness, low sweetness and low/medium sourness. Palate: Thin smooth texture, light body, average carbonation, dry burnt malt, peppery, marmalade, fruity citrus lingering finish. Comments: Very tasty and glass lace.

Hallstein (110) - Skogn, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2013
From a 0,33 Bottle. Hazy yellow-golden color with no head. The beer itself has aromas of floral english hops and slight citrus. Very low carbonation, with grassy, fruity and zesty flavors. Not too pleasant flavor to be honest. Didn’t really enjoy this, at all.

Wischylini (125) - Grimstad, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a hazy honey-golden colour, with a thin head that disappears very fast. The main note of the aroma is citrus and fruits, it makes me think of tangerines. There’s also a mild nutty malt flavour to it, and as the beer warms I’m getting notes of honey. The taste is sweet, but with a tangy aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a wee bit oily and makes the beer seem heavier than it is.

djoeye (1230) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2013
330ml bottle, 4,6%, from supermarket. Scents of hops, hints of caramel. Moderate head on a golden to amber body. Tastes hops, grains, roasted malts, and has a fine balanced mouthfeel with the right bitter twist, and easy to drink. Ends with soft malts, still some hops and a little bitterness. It tastes good also for me, who has (czech) pilsener as favourite.

ThreeCats (554) - ISRAEL - SEP 28, 2013
Hazy honey color with a nice creamy head. Aroma of fine English hops and caramel. Taste of refreshing bitterness, crisp caramel malts, and light to medium body. There’s general "fruitiness" to the flavor, though I couldn’t tell you what fruit it tasted, A nice English bitter. Next time I’m going to let it sit open for longer so that it gets a little flatter and warmer - for the true experience.
