matbli (255) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 2, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 Bottle, pours slightly hazy golden with extrenly fast falling white head. Aroma shows no bigger defects but it?s very light with some notes of sweet corn, honey and hay. Very water with light sweetness and some light bitterness that is still the most noticable taste in the foreground. There is also some bready sourness in the aftertaste. Avarage lager.

Slight malt & grape aroma. Pale and slightly hazy in appearance. No head. Well carbonated, dry and not thin. Hints of diacetyl. Some negative esters and phenolics that do not compliment the beer. However nice hop balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brew_Cat (119) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle at home bought at a Bio store near my home. Pours yellow with no head. Heavily particulate, thin bodied, poor palate. Slight aromas of malt, mostly cereal and herbs. Light presence of hops, mostly grass and herbs. Taste is similar, with dry finish and slightly bitter-sweet aftertaste. I’ve had it many times in the past, it’s an ok brew but nothing that special. I do prefer it to commercial beers, and I appreciate their following the German Purity Law.

Swingtop Bottle at a Beach side cafe in Rethymno, 5/31/15
Pale yellow, frothy, bright white head, lots of carbonation in glass. Clean sweet malt aroma. Light and refreshing beer. Crisp and clean flavour. Light bodied but not watery. Quite solid and refreshing.

Brink’s blonde 33cl swingtop bottle in Athens. Looks good but somewhat faint aroma with overly mild and simple flavor. Bready aftertaste with faint herbal and spicy hops.
