kajser27 (641) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2015
Clear, copper colored, medium strong, lasting off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, quite tropical fruity, citrus. Taste is moderate sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, mild tropical fruit and citrus finish, moderate bitterness, quite dry bitter finish and after. Moderate bodied and carbonation. Nice hop aroma at start but it weakens relatively fast, flavor is more on the malt side, bitterness is fine.

330ml bottle at home bought at Merkur Hoher Markt. BB 03/2016. amber hazy color, quite big off-white head unfortunatly also rather stable. smells of pines, herbs, citric notes, light sweetness, a bit soapy. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of pines, grass, some sweetness, citric, grapefruity, orange zest, herbs, alcohol lightly noticeable, a bit soapy. finishes with light grapefruit, herbs and citric bitterness. quite good, I remember not liking this too much the first times I tried it, years ago, but its rather nice, maybe they changed the recipe over the years.

0,33l pullo @ Schweizerhaus Vienna. Lähes kirkas oranssinkeltainen. Tuoksussa sitrusta, humalaa, appelsiinia, mallasta ja vähän metsää. Maussa appelsiinia, humalaa, hiukan neulasia, aavistuksen paahteista mallasta, hiukan karamellia, leipää. On hyvää!
