McTapps (5716) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle from Pivnizub - many thanks! Beer pours out in a clear dark golden colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is nice as well: Ripe hops, light malt, apples, straw, flowers and caramel. Nice indeed but yet little bit too boring. Hints of brown sugar and nuts. Easy to drink and refreshing.

kappldav123 (5480) - GERMANY - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle looks simple and a bit boring. Beer in the glass not vey zippy, small head. Starts mild, but not washy, mild-dry background. Finish malty-wheaty, still very mild. Okay.
