chinchill (2709) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2015
From a bottle in Edinburgh. Bright golden body with medium carbonation. Crisp light body. Modestly stronger flavor than average for style, mostly due to the hops.

leosanches (33) - - APR 25, 2015
Cerveja amarela e translúcida, sem espuma. O aroma é frutado e campestre, com toque cítrico e com o lúpulo já se fazendo presente. O sabor é equilibrado, cumprindo aquilo que o aroma promete, com amargor leve, álcool pouco presente e toque cítrico e lúpulo acentuado. A drinkability é boa, mas o aftertaste não agradável, com um amargor levemente rançoso. O pálato é fraco e pouco envolvente. Apesar de escola, lembra as IPAs americanas devido ao lúpulo acentuado e corpo leve.

TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2015
330 ml bottle into schooner glass. Fruity nose, a touch of hops. Pale amber beer with small lasting white head. Medium carbonation. Smooth in the mouth with delicate fruit notes then strong bitterness to finish. Quite abrupt. Excellent lager.

From a bottle. Mild peppery malt finish is interesting, minimal head and a faint aroma biscuit. Not too bad.
