Kurtos (119) - Sydney, - FEB 8, 2013
Aroma. Very feint tropical fruits aroma. Appearance. Pours a golden colour like the name would suggest. Taste. I can taste banana and citrus flavours, and surprisingly some alcohol flavours. Overall. A good beer, best enjoyed on a nice hot day with some fish and chips.

anstei (268) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 20, 2015
345ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a small head that quickly disappears. Grassy spring nose. Fruity, citric taste, a bit sour even. Still watery in the mouthfeel though. And where is the hops that produced that beautiful aroma? Killed by overcarbonization I assume. What a shame...

RafeAU (365) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2015
mild ale. Some fruitiness from the yeast and hops, no malt character to lift it up. thin body. it’s okay. better macrobrew than most lager options.
