500ml bottle. Pours copper, very clear with moderate off-white head. Nice aroma of lightly mulled fruits and citrus. Some sweetness to begin followed by gentle malt and a mild bitter finish which is offset by some lingering sweetness too. Not particularly complex or distinctive and perhaps not too memorable but pretty pleasant overall.

Cunningham (6912) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2016
A really nice and refreshing bitter.
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation. A quite nice and refreshing bitterness. Semi dry texture. Malty, floral and mild fruity flavor.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
500ml bottle in multipack from Waitrose. Pours with foamy white head which dissipates with some lacing. Aroma of toffee, butter and some woody notes. Medium bitterness and somewhat oily mouthfeel. Not particularly distinctive and rather flat and watery.

Sigmund (6646) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2016
500 ml bottle, bought in London. ABV is 4.2%. Deep golden colour, large white head. Aroma of blackcurrants and blackcurrant leaves, a hint of toffee. . The flavour is medium dry with a slight fruitiness, which makes it quite drinkable. Decent hops in the finish, become sharpish in the aftertaste.

Grassy and buttery aroma. Grassy hops, medium bitter taste, kinda weak on the palate.

Beerowl80 (198) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle. Very little aroma just a bit of dank malt. Not much flavour either just a bit of caramel and light bitterness. Forgettable.

Itstasty (42) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle. Dull - no more to say, but guess I will have to. Appearance is the highlight, it goes downhill rapidly on taste, palate and aroma. Thin flavour, if this was the only beer to drink Iíd be tee total.

Plytkie i wodniste piwo o blado zoltym kolorze z biala piana. Wyrazna goryczka w smaku z lekkim cytrusowym finiszem. Nic ciekawego

ogivlado (7174) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2015
Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Marko and hrabren. Dark golden coloured, small off-white head, slightly sulphury nose. Water with notes of sulphur or similar chemical compound with touch of caramel and herbs. Something is wrong here...

hrabren (856) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 13, 2015
0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Marko and Ogi. Clear golden, almost invisible off white head. Industrial malts and hops, watery. No distinct taste, no finish. Like a watered down soup cooked in dirty water or something. Terrible.
