Nilz (458) - Glasgow, - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle that pours a clear gold with a white foam head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma a flowery hoppiness. Taste hops, pleasant metallic dry clean and fruity with a clear bitter finish. Lager yeast and I’d see it’s appeal.

Estava ansioso em prová-la já que é considerada por alguns como uma das melhores lager do mundo. O aroma é maltado e gostoso bem acima do padrão do estilo. Já o sabor, apesar de ser acima da média, não tem nada de excepcional. O ponto forte é a harmonia. Amargor na medida e é bem refrescante. Minha expectativa foi em excesso. Também não se pode esperar muita complexidade de uma lager. É uma boa breja que cumpre bem o seu papel

jjsint (1387) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Kings Parade). Dark deep yellow, quite fizzy with a loose white head. Aroma of grass and lemon, some tangerine, the tiniest hint of astringency. It has an excellent taste, however: sweet and refreshing with a bitter/herbal balancing note. The bitterness is more obvious in the finish. Orange peel in the finish and aftertaste. Nice.

ManVsBeer (5807) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Pale golden with a very light carbonation and next to no head. Has a very floral nose that’s not overly pleasant. Some lager malt is evident whilst retaining an ale-like texture.
