4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a pint glass. Straw colored and transparent. Almost a finger of head. Great lacing all the way down the glass. Lots of bubbles visible.
A big mix of malt and hops on the nose. Rich malt smell, a background of lemon and grapefruit.
Light tasting, almost watery at the beginning, moves to a clean maltiness, then a pointed bitter and lemon taste at the end.
Soft texture, medium body, low carbonation.
This is an enigma of a beer. The smell made me think I was in for a powerful malt bomb. A really subtle taste, but still flavorful and dynamic. And you can throw them back without worry at AVB 4.2%

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fading light white head with a crisp clear deep golden colour. Has a predominant hop nose with floral notes, malt and some sort of fruit salad. Light slender medium body with a light slick texture offering some sweetness after a short fizz developping further a harmonic bitterness. Well balanced with a good lasting finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The description made this sound like the perfect brew, but I was left feeling extremely let down. All I could feel in the mouth was bubbles. Hints of hops but nothing to write home about. All I can say is that I only chilled it for 20 minutes or so before drinking it, and I don’t think it was enough, I will definitely give it another go, but my overall feeling was that it tasted like a decent lager, nothing more. And as everybody knows, lager that hasn’t been properly chilled is absolutely undrinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a very thin off-white head that diminished almost immediately. Aromas of caramel, mineral notes, light green tea, and grapefruit. Light bodied and easy drinking with citrusy grapefruit notes up front, caramel, excellent minerality, and spice in the finish. This is an excellent session beer. BIG thumbs up.

Half liter bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head that quickly fades. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, faint hops. The taste is big citrus hops, lemon, candied lemon, grapefruit, some further non-descript fruity notes, mild caramel malt and tea. Medium bodied. low carbonation, lingering bitterness. Decent enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly golden in colour with good carbonation but only a temporary head. Aromatic hoppiness that smells of citrus and fragrant orchard-fruit and flowers. It is bright, fruity and punchy and then has a good twinge of bitterness that carries the flavour onward well. This is tasty stuff.

500ml bottle. Toronto, Ontario. Pours a translucent golden body with a small white head. It has a citrusy and floral aroma. What a refreshing citrusy and exotic fruity taste. Well balanced hoppy finish. Light - medium carbonation. I had low expectations for this beverage but it tasted amazing.
