Pours yellow-orange with thin white head and lots of bubbles. Aroma is sweet with malty tones dominating, but lemon and some oranges spill through. Taste is complex, with fruit and malty tones combining. It even has a slight bitterness in its quite long aftertaste.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 7, 2007
750ml bottle, corked and caged: Poured deep golden yellow, almost orangeish, with a medium sized white head. Quite a bit of herbal hop aroma. Slight fruit notes with apple and grape. Flavor is solid: bitter hoppiness with a touch of fruit and grains. Clean. Goes down well.

armando629 (2455) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 4, 2007
0.75 l bottle at Auchan. I was surprised about a beer like that in this hypermarket. The color was gold-orange, the nose was not so strong. In the taste dominates the sweety malt with some fruity things. And the beer was not expensive:)

Big offwhite coarseish head. Deep yellow body with carbonation. Floral milky aroma with fruity notes. Dry floral peppery mealy taste with fruity notes. Light body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry floral peppery fruity aftertaste with mealy grassy light toffee notes. Nice and drinkable, with some character. (0.75l bottle, Auchain, Illkirch, Strasbourg.)

yngwie (16303) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked. Pours a clear, golden body under a minimal white head. Malty and fruity nose with a little grainy touch. Similar flavor, malty and fruity with a grainy backbone, leading to a dry finish with fruits and some bitterness. Medium to full body. A decent and easy drinkable beer, but there’s nothing special with it. Just a plain Biere de Garde. 090821
