Soft blonde pour with a white head. The nose is sharp and bready, oxidized, vitamin-y, papery, and herbal. Sharp and grassy flavor, bready/earthy malt character, and herbal. Light body with a dry finish.

VamboladeTolly (227) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle @ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours clean golden with big fluffy-creamy white head. Aroma is grassy, hoppy, malty, some citrus. Taste is heavy bitter, grassy, malty, grapefruit, some honey notes,hay. Its really bitter beer, but thats all, nothing special. If you want something bitter then its for you.

birraiolo (217) - ITALY - NOV 22, 2014
Bottiglia da 500 ml. Color ambrato con schiuma media di color nocciola. Al naso un buon caramello con note maltate e resinose. Al palato attacca con un caramello molto accentuato che lascia spazio ad un leggero dolce maltato con un finale molto secco.

Beersiveknown (3230) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail
slightly hazy amber with pillowy beige head. Pithy mandarins and Dusty hopsacks, fruity. Sprightly carbonation, pithy, slightly chalky pithy bitterness. Dry finish. Quite austere and tonnes of pith...would make a good aperitif

adster (437) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Mézhez hasonló küllemű ital, amely vastag, krémes, tejfehér habkoronával büszkélkedhet. Ez a krémesség aztán az egész története során nyomon követhető mind aromái, mind íze tekintetében. Gyantás trópusi gyümölcsök, tejszínes desszert illata töltik be a teret laboratóriumi tisztasággal, étvágygerjesztő kompozíció. Dzsúzszerű jellegében remekül egyesül a grapefruitos gyümölcsösség üde karaktere és a tejszínesen édes, a nyelvünkön szirupszerűen szétterjedő, fenyővel teletűzdelt kesernyés komlódesszert ízhatása. A teste majdhogynem tökéletes, minden kortynak mondanivalója van, elő-és utóélete teli tartalommal. Kifinomult elegancia és kiadós, harapható ízek, csemege a javából.

It pours a cloudy golden orange color with a full white head. It has a sour fruit smell. The taste is dominated by caramel malt with some floral hops. It has a strange bitter twang on the palate.
