oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2010
Bottled (from BierZwerg.de). Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is quite big on bready and caramelly malts, also has some citrus fruits, mild earthcellaryness as well as some mild herbs. Flavour is wood, fruits, some earthcellar as well as mild bready malts. Biting carbonation. Some slight harsh grainy notes as it warms up a bit, otherwise quite nice.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Draught at the brauhaus
Blond color, just a shade darker. It’s a mild beer, with no noticeable characteristics; the very light fruity sweetness is maybe the only sign of the top fermentation; ordinary bitterness. Easy, but not totally bad.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle at Pig’s Ear BF 09. Dull. Needs to be fresh. It’s ok, but lacks freshness. OK. Some lemon fruit on the end.
