UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Perfect starter beer on a hot day. I found this beer to be quite pleasing after a few games of disc golf.

Always drank this with a curry. Thought I'd try it with a fresh palate. Pour is golden straw and sparkly. Small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is weak but what's there is like a foil wrapped lemon: metallic and citrusy. Mouthfeel is nice: sparkly and a good texture. Taste is light, quite sweet but overall lacking in anything interesting. Aftertaste is like lemon peel. It's obvious why such an innocuous beer is such a hit with curry: it's light tasting, zingy, and quenches the fire. When sipped on a nice Saturday evening without something fiery: it's lacklustre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blonde bien claire à la mousse très faiblarde. Léger goût de céréales, amertume légère, globalement très fade. Absolument aucun intérêt, hormis remplacer l’eau en cas de visite du tiers monde...

Bottle at Hills & Mills, Delft. If only the beer was as good as the food! Clear golden with short lasting white head. Very malty, light lemon and raw veggies. Light sweet, a bit more bitter. Over medium body, a friggin maltcake, low carbonation. Rice dry and citrus peel bitter finish.

labeerinthum (420) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 6, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso viene preso dall’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con bollicine medie e bassa carbonazione. L’aspetto del liquido è limpido, con bollicine fini. La carbonazione è morbida ma molto marcata. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è rotondo. L’amaro è più che medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo, lungo, asciutto e complesso. In bocca l’aroma ricorda sentori di miele, cereali, agrumi e resina.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. After dinner. A bit better than average lager. Soft, without an agressive bitterness. Very drinkable and refreshing

djoeye (3148) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2016
Normal lager scents, notes of yellow apple and marcipan. Golden straw clear body, white soft head with integrated bubbles. Lager malts, grass, yellow apples to the tongue. Light feel. Short finish. Inoffensive and easy, somewhat watery. [33cl at Indian House Restaurant]
