Hanuta06 (404) - Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, sparkling, orange body. Taste: light to moderately bitter, initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and soft to lively carbonation. Overall: one of my favorite beers. It’s thirst-quenching, has enough hops to keep it interesting, but is also not overly bitter.

Brewhemia (106) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
Beautiful clear deep amber color with white head that lingers beautifully. Not much aroma but some cellar aromas and some grass/cereal. The taste is subtle and a light bitterness dominates with a light sweetness taking over in the finish. Afinetuned balance I think. I like it. Good level of carbonation.

Aus der Bügelflasche. Dunkles Rot. Malzig herber Duft. Sehr wenig Kohlensäure, deshalb recht süffig. Malz, leichte Säure und bitterer Abgang. Ungewöhnliches Bier!
