MarkoNm (1899) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 6, 2015
Pours almost clear golden color, topped with a nice white frothy head. Mild fruity aroma, some flowery notes and a hint of elderflower. Taste is slightly sweet with some grassy hops to it, very mild bitterness in the finish and a bit watery. Drinkable, not bad.

BrunoSanchez (189) - Fermo, ITALY - MAY 6, 2015
Golden ale di stampo inglese. Colore oro con scarsa schiuma bianca. Al naso fruttata e floreale. In bocca corpo medio. Bilanciata bene. Sapore troppo fruttato a mio parere. Lungo finale nel palato.
