Ahhhhh! Fa caldo e vuoi bere. Entri in un beershop e ti ritrovi una helles... che fai? La prendi mi pare ovvio. Mi ci sono buttato sopra come fa un cane in calore sopra una cagna. Aroma floreale a tratti fruttato (citrico addirittura) e di malto. Struttura acquosa, beverina e rinfrescante. Fa il suo lavoro (di bevanda rigenerante nelle calde giornate di sole) dannatamente bene. Prosit!!

Beer4000 (4603) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Tarjei. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity with grain and hint of spices. Flavor is soft, light malty with some fruit and moderate bitterness. Soft mouth feel and medium aftertaste. OK but rather ordinary.

AshtonMcCobb (2916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2012
On tap @ Holiday Inn, Central Munich. Pours light golden with gentle bubbles and a proportionate head. The nose is lightly malty with a delicate citrus note. The taste has a big citrus zing against a malty profile. The palate light to medium bodied with a light texture and a clean finish. Overall, a decent lager.

On tap. Pale yellow beer a little hazed with small but lacing head. This one rely most on the fruity notes (peach) than malts. Sweet with a light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation.

ClubGonzo (4226) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2011
Sample glass @ Hopfingerbräu am Palais near Brandenburger Tor, Berlin. Slightly hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts and sugar with hints of dry hops. Taste is pale malts again, sugary corn notes and hints of dusty hops. Not too impressive and pretty dull, but relatively well brewed and quite drinkable.
