lethe (177) - New York, USA - APR 20, 2012
Pours a very hazy pale yellow. Looks like a Pilsner or a Landbier, but the nose dispels that with way more notes of hoppy grassiness in standards of those styles. Fair amount of body to the palate and low carbonation. Flavor is very nice and is most reminiscent of a U.S. harvest ale: grassy, herbal notes and healthy dose of bitterness. Some citrus flavors as well, but mainly bitterness and grass. This is really nice and a great single hop from a German brewer. If this was a little stronger and a little hoppier it would make a great IPA. One of the best hoppy German pale ales I’ve had.

NosirIwont (2041) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. 5.1%. Best before 07.06.14; 8 months past. Pours a clear straw yellow, with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is citrus hops, a bit tart. Feels a bit stale. Flavour is sweetish, with citrus hops, a bit tart. Light milky note. Dull. Too much carbonation. Overall not bad, but so-so; should probably try a fresher one. 28.02.15.

rikstar (1107) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2014
Bij Fritz in Binz flesje. Uitgeschonken oranjegoud met een niet overdreven veel schuim. Mango en citrus in de geur, in de smaak blijft vooral de mango staan met een klein opbouwend bittertje zoals in grapefruit. Body is dun,lichte verfrissende IPA. Aardig

McWorta (796) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 18, 2014
Nearly opaque bright yellw colour with a solid frothy white head with good lacings. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and sugared lime, elderflower develops with clear notes of hay and light caramel malt on the retronasal side. Light and bright texture with a fine carbonation. Some floral light fruity sweet notes develop which move on to a light acidic and bitter area all pretty harmonic. The finish is somewhat quick but pleasant and refreshing.
