Draft @ Novare Res. Pale yellow color with thick full head, good retention in the Tulip. Light malty nose. Flavor is mild yeast providing a light fruit. I also get a light grain. Lighter in body with a short finish. Very plain and simple. Drinkable but I wasn’t craving another glass.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.

ruigo (862) - PORTUGAL - AUG 29, 2013
Shared a 75cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and light. Medium carbonation and very light body. Flavour is light with some bitterness at start but getting sweet at the end. A regular beer.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottled(750ml). -from Auchan Budapest tried in Sarajevo.
Golden coloured, medium to big sized white head that went away slowly, light cheesy nose. Sweet malty, herbal and slight yeasty taste with notes of spices and friuts. Some grainy notes in rather bitter finish. To be honest I’ve expected (much) better beer.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2010
Corked bottle from Auchan, Quatre Temps, La Défense, Paris
Blond color. Unoffensive Ale (?), poor aroma (corn), poor flavor in the front, but strangely there is a late fruity touch (Ale yeast), and even very light hop burp. Drinkable; well, in France.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a weak grassy aroma and a yeasty and weak flavour. Overall quite a poor beer for the style.

Lubiere (9430) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2010
A golden ale with a thin white head. Aroma of red licorice, malt, some orange peels. In mouth, a sweet cloying malt, rather light bodied, some light orange, harsh alcohol. Not very good. 1.89 euro for a 750 mL bottle at Galeries Gourmandes (Auchan) in l’Atrium du Palais des Congrès.
