UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 500ml bottle. Clear light/medium brown. Pleasant mildly malty aroma. Medium malt with some toast. Hops and moderate bitterness to finish. Perfectly drinkable if not exceptional.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2014
50 cl flaske. Klar ravfarvet, lille off white skum. Græset næse med lette noter af biscuit. Ikke meget spark i smagen, blød, flad, kedelig, lav bitterhed, støvet floral engelsk humle med vag citrus.

Vells (542) - LATVIA - MAR 17, 2014
Quite simple, but drinkable brew. Ok maltiness, with some hops and notes of honey. Cant call this bitter thou. Mostly sweetish with light bitterness. Bit boring, but can grab some for ice hockey

ThirstyBird (1198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow color with a thick off white cap. The smell is grain, mild fruit and a hint of honey or carmel. The taste is honey, fruit, some nutty character and a tart fruity ending. The body is light with active carbonation. Decent but not much more.

I liked this even with it,s wartery taste, very mild with little after taste, this is something I would drink cold to quench a thirst. Got a few bottles from B&M and would get some more if in stock. Clear body but again head didn’t last very long bit to fizzy for an ale in my mind.

SarkyNorthener (1420) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle from local offie. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is mild bittering hops, malts and caramel with a hint of fruit. Watery. Below average bitter, but good enough to drink a few on a night.
