17/20 Cross between a lager and a wheat beer. I thought it was excellent, surprised at the low rating. 6.5% and plenty of yeast action in the beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2016
Thin layer of froth around the glass. Sweet, flowery aroma. Caramelly, slightly flowery beginning. Bit sweet caramelly taste in the middle. Bit sweetness, notes of honey, maltiness in the end. Quite well drinkable beer, but not surprising.

Pours with a small head in white. Beer hazy and straw coloured. Taste is creamy and with light fruity notes. Very small bitterness but some nice hints of hops.

Blueshawk (398) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- leuchtendes Orange mit leichter Schaumbidlung - Aromen nach Honig, Biskuit, Karamell und eine dezente Hopfennote - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Idee zu moussierend für ein Bockbier - der Antrunk zeigt sofort eine gewisse Verwandtschaft zu einem Ale - der Körper ist mir für ein Bockbier etwas zu wässrig und nichtssagend - allerdings baut die gut erkennbare Honignote ein angenehmes Szenario im Hintergrund auf - diese immer konstante und angenehme Note rettet das Bier dann doch noch Fazit: Eigentlich kein Bockbier, aber es ginge als richtig gutes Honigbier durch

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small head. Aroma has loads of sweet fruitiness, white bread and grains. Flavour of sweet malts, grains, a bit of pear, grassy bitterness and quite nice grassy bitterness. Medium bodied. Crisp and clean. Kudos for being unfiltered. Good.

Tjeerd (316) - GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016
I didn’t quite catch the tropical fruit aroma that was supposed to be there. Nice Golden beer with a quickly diminishing Reasonable mouthfeel, medium to low carbonation. Dry aftertaste. Not really my thing.

Very tasty and refreshing beer for a sunny afternoon. Very creamy in the mouth with a pale white head that dissipates quickly. The beer is a striking solid pale yellow. Tastes very much like malty biscuits. Smells of fresh hay and malt. Good amount of carbonation.

MayumiH (984) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy golden colour. Malty caramel biscuit backbone. Medium body. Nice bitter sweet finish. Not bad at all.

hauxe (445) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2016
Pours hazy light orange from the bottle. The crown soon dissipates to fine lacing. The aroma is subdued and goes in the direction of ginger tonic. Taste is rich malt, honey, caramel, and slides into a warming, lightly bitter finish. Chewy and creamy with overall relatively low carbonation. Overall pleasant and consistent. Would pair well with most meaty dishes.
