yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. It pours a hazy orange body with a lively carbonation and a decent white head. Quite weak on the nose, with citrus being the dominant, and it has company of pale malt or wheat, and some vague notes of spices. Medium body, very effervescent and slightly citric, with flavors of lemon, spice-notes, malt and sugar. It sort of feels dry, but it’s actually quite sweetish. Some bitterness too, especially in the very end. I could wish for more pronounced aromas and flavors, and less carbonation. It’s far from a bad beer, but I dont’ think I’m gonna by more bottles. It seems to be more a beer made for marketing than for real enjoyment. (081025)

asheft (2484) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2008
[bottle at EBF 2008] Nice malty aroma with some nice lemon notes. Anemic, cloudy yellow with a white ring. Very lemony flavour, almost like Sprite plus hops. Gentle, sweet malt developing into coriander. Thin, but clean, not complex, low carbonation.

Maria (10130) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2008
EBF2008. It’s hazy, golden and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of honey, citrus and malt. The flavour has sweetness, notes of malt, honey, citrus and it’s sort of OK, just way too sweet.

Where the heck do these guys get off ripping off the Mikkeler Black bottle and logo? Mikeller should sue them!
Bottle (EBF2008)
Slightly wheaty fresh aroma. Refreshing, but odd fruity spicy taste. Lovely simple grainy finish. Watery in places. OK in summer for some, I’m sure.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle from Centra, Oslo. Well, I really don’t know about this one. Soft wheat beer mixed with green tea and some spices thrown in for good measure. The Japanese answer to Radler? It tastes OK, but I don’t think it works as a beer.
