Grima (2228) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2013
The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow, slightly cloudy, with a high, soapy head. It smells yeasty and sweet, subtly tart, with a lot of aroma hops, grain and bread. Starts mild malty, very bready and grainy, with plenty of aroma hops in the background. The middle part shows some sweet yeast, coupled with a lot of grain, bread and aroma hops. Goes into a hoppy-bitter finish, coupled with some caramel and toffee.

inbirraveritas (1414) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 18, 2010
Szép, mély aranyszínű lager, habja viszonylag tartós, és vékonyan megmarad, szénsavassága átlagos. Illata édes, gabonás, fűszeres. Enyhe csípősséggel indul, íze gyümölcsös/malátás. Aromájában is a malátán van a hangsúly, mely mögött fel-feltünedezik a komló. Befejezése először édeskés, utána válik fokozatosan egyre fűszeresebbé, mely megmarad a szájban ill. valamelyest kiszárítja azt. Teste közepes, könnyen iható. Összességében inkább egy jobbfajta átlagos élményt nyújtott nekem:, annak ellenére, hogy érezhetően minőségi alapanyagokból készült...

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours orangey amber with a thick white head that quickly dissipates. The wonderful aroma is of rich malt, some grassiness, fruit -- virtually no hops. The flavor is nicely layered: more rich malt, some caramel, fruit. It is rather sweet, but not overly so, and well balanced with some light hops that come on toward the end. The mouthfeel is creamy. All in all, a very satisfying, interesting beer. Rich, but not heavy.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 22, 2010
Tükrösen tiszta,sötétebb aranysárga színű sör amin hósipkaként fekszik egy fehér,vastag buborékos hab,ami lassan elolvad szép csipke függönyt hagyva a pohár falán.Illata malátás,kissé égetett cukros és enyhén olyan mint a pisztáciának.Íze erősen malátásan és kissé édeskésen kezdődik amit egy kesernyés és gyümölcsös finom komló íz követ,ami kitölti az egész szájat.Van benne egy kis pörkölt sós mogyorós íz is.Nagyon érdekes!Elég jó teste van és a kezdeti nagy buborékok után közepesen szénsavas marad.Utóíze komlósan száraz és kissé sós,alaposan kiszárítja a szájat.Nagyon könnyen iható,fantasztikus pils ami a legjobbak között van!
