COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
"Bottled with approximately 1/3rd less Carbon Dioxide than most beers. This results in a fresher more natural tasting beer. Combines Hallertau Hersbrücker with Challenger. Late hopped with Styrian Goldings, which gives a sharpness like the twist of a lemon."

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2006
A dark orange beer with a thick dense off-white head. The aroma is fresh with a lovely note of hops, making it very fresh. The flavor is fresh with a nice crisp malt accent on which is a nice hoppyness giving it slight hints of grass and lemon. Very refreshing.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour with small white bubbly head. Hoppy and flowery nose with weak hints of malt. Flavour is bitterish but a bit weak to what I waited it would be. Some notes of citrus can also be found. Mouthdrying beer, but it lacks aftertaste almost completely. Nice palate.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Pretty syandard blonde beer. Supposed to be all sorts of things but is really just sharp and a little bitter.
