hohops (211) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Appearance is a very clear amber, an off-white foamy head which clings to the glass. Aroma- lots of raisin, caramel, toffee, malts, a bit of wheat. Taste- smooth, an understated bitterness, lots of caramel, big maltiness, quite a long finish with chewy toffee and some dark fruits in the background. Nice.

Bottle. Nice but unstable, white head. Low carbonation and bitterness. Aroma is sweet with malty notes. In taste is very sweet and watery.

gyllenbock (4398) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2014
Can from Systembolaget. Clear copper with a medium head. Aroma and taste of malt, caramel, grass and fruit. Also some medicine. The finish was on the bitter side. A bit boring to be honest.

gwizdek1990 (8) - POLAND - JUL 4, 2014 does not count
Piana biała ale znika tak szybko jak się pojawiła. Kolor jasnego bursztynu. Aromat chmielowy i przyjemnie intensywny. W smaku chmiel i nuty cytrusowe i kwiatowe. Niskie wysycenie i przyjemna goryczka. Jest intensywna ale nie zalega zbyt długo

generallee08 (530) - New York, USA - JUL 2, 2014
It has a rich amber color with a small creamy off white head. It has slick lacing which coats the glass but slides right down as I sip. This head doesn’t last to long as it fades out buy about the mid way point down the glass. The nose has a soft malty buttered dinner roll like character. There is a slight suggestion of fruit and hops way off in the background. It has a light to medium body with the same mellow bready and buttery character detected in the aroma with just a hint of toffee sweetness. There is also a very slight earthiness like white button mushrooms in there. It has some light, somewhat distant herbal hop notes on the back end which reminds me of black tea with lemon. The hops still add a good balance to the mellow malt sweetness. It has light carbonation on the palate giving it a smooth creamy texture that slides down with ease.

Piana jasno kremowa, gęsta, ale dość szybko opada. Klarowne, w kolorze bursztynu. W aromacie słody i karmel. W smaku karmel i kwiatowo-cytrusowe odczucie. Lekko wyczuwalna goryczka. Tekstura oleista. Wysycenie niskie.
