Ragnampiza (491) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 25, 2014
500 ml from handpump at Birra+. Rich pale gold, quite clear, with a big, frothy and bubbly white head. Grassy, hoppy and herbal nose, some light cereals and white bread presence. Incredibly smooth and refreshing, so easy to drink. Perfect level of bitterness (quite low), persitent hoppy and fruity taste. Mild malty backbone. Soft carbonation, light body, creamy texture. Superb session beer.

wihlan (286) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Ljus färg och något grumlig med vit skumkrona. Söt men den övertas av en härlig beska, väl balanserad.

VictorStr (1334) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
En av det bättre lågalkohol ölen jag druckit. Fruktig kanske ananas i aromen. Riktigt len och balanserad i smak och kropp.

Nocturne (833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Cask at JDW. Light amber shade with a white head. Not as hoppy as I expected but does have some nice tangerine and passion fruit characteristics. Smooth caramel underpinning. Refreshing drop but doesn’t stand out as much compared to the other Dark Stars I’ve tried.
