Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 7, 2013
This is a very mild beer but a slight step up from your typical lager beer. It has a little more malt flavor and a mellow hop finish.

tomer (1647) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 6, 2013
At a tasting, thanks Tom, clear light amber colour, aroma of peanuts, grains, and some hay with a hint of caramel, sweetish caramel flavour with some nuts, light bitterness and body, a touch unpleasant bittersweet aftertaste. Not too good.

DSG (5672) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Clear amber. Aroma is a bit oxidized, with malt, caramel and some stale and slightly skunky hops. Sweetish malty flavor, somewhat stale, with caramel, honey-ish notes and a finish with faint bitterness. Medium-bodied.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2013
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a dark copper colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malt and caramel leading to malty, medium to weak bitter flavour with caramel and toffee on the palate and into the smooth but slightly watery palate. This beer deserves a better rating IMO.
