Copenhagen 18/7 2015. 75 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen shared with my girlfriend. Pours clear yellow with white head. Disappears very fast. Aroma is a little floral and fruity. Medium carbonation. Taste is fruity and a little spicy. A little citrus as well. Some notes of alcohol - but pleasant enough. Fine blonde. Maybe a little generic.

TorbenJensen (490) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Strong spicy aroma and citrus reflects high alcohol strength even before you’ve tasted. The flavor is deep rich orange (peel). It have a rounded fullness where its pleasant malty side gets a little more space. Maybe more like a lovely and very full-bodied blonde ale. A lovely soft carbonation promotes its flavor notes of particular citrus, orange and a little cilantro. Hop bitterness is beautifully balanced in proportion to the weakness of malt sweetness which is left with the hops in an elegant end. In the beginning, it has a little fine oiled nature that causes it to hang long in the mouth and just keep well on its great flavor notes. Very elegant and tasteful.

Icedwarf (716) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, licht zoet en fruitig, anijs en hoppig. Erg goed te drinken bier, komt helaas iets waterig over.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is golden colored and pours a small white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is fruity with tones of green apples and vanilla. Further a bitterness with tones of nuts and spices (pepper like). It has a slightly accessible sweet flavor where you can clearly taste the corn. A pleasant taste with character and kept simple. Just enjoy without your taste buds are driven to extremes.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Mild yeasty nose, with light malt, spice rising from thin effervescent carbonation, and sloppy lacing. Clear golden straw color, thin head. Sweetish fruity initial, hits of alcohol right away, some peppery notes, and bitter and lightly dry in finish. Medium-full body. Seems quite wheaty. The alcohol is rather too warming. Still, quite tasty.

TedE (494) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2015
On tap at Cafe ’t Galgenhuis, Ghent. (Tiny, tiny pub). Sweet malt nose, golden beer with lasting white head. Taste is slight bitterness followed by roasted malt sweetness. Equal parts sourness and alcohol finish it off. Excellent.
