Bottle. Hazy deep golden body, medium creamy off-white head. Nose is corn flakes, cereals, hints of grass. Grainy cerealy malts, hints of grass. Medium body and carbonation. Kinda like a homebrew from the countryside, but OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle pours a hazy, deep gold with some thin, clumpy white head. Nose is sweet and sugary, honey, malt, a little cake icing, a little banana ice cream. Flavor is sweet, light grass, light honey, some light biscuit, a little light vanilla, some chewy grain, a little light citrus. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter, slightly silky finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from the brand new Liquid Drink Bar in Budapest. First sip brings out luscious creamy cheesecake flavours that hint at mango, peach and citrusy notes. Certainly an intriguing beer that balances out its floral elements in the second glass with a slightly bitter undertone. Don’t know if I could drink too many of these in one sitting, but no doubt lovely with a desert.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Cheers Drinkbar, Budapest. Puors hazy golden with good thick head, which stays long. Aroma has a lot of cereal character with citrusy, bubblegum and little fermented error aroma. Taste is also very cereally with grassy hops in the aftertaste. There is also citrus and hay. Palate is medium with hoppy character in the middle and aftertaste. Surprisingly good and well-hopped kellerbier, with good balance. There seemed to bee litlle error in aroma, but not in taste, which is good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml swing-top bottle from Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer in Budapest. Pours a hazed golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral with a slight honey sweetness, a touch of DMS, oxidized cardboard, a bit of an herbal spice, and some bread. Flavor is better. Creamy pale malts with a slight honey sweetness, a light grass and herbal spice, some yeast, a good amount of florals, and a light bready note. Finishes clean and creamy with a light floral bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light, soft body and a creamy, medium carbonation. Overall, the aroma wasn’t very good, but the flavor had a nice creaminess and floral bitterness without any of the off-flavors showing up. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Draught at Szimpla Kert in Budapest.
Incredible to read it’s a lager! it’s seems an IPA, sure I wouldn’t have said it’s a bottom fermentation beer!
Hazy yellow colour, with a big white head, very smooth and fluffy. Very fruity aroma, citrus. Taste is bitter, nice herbal notes, and again citrus. It starts sweet, then finishes quite dry.
That’s a nice beer! Maybe the best hungarian beer till now, in my opinion, it was very pleasant and drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unfiltered, hazy, light orange colour, like weizen, big white head, fizzy. Unpasteurized lager.
Taste and palate is very herbal and full of hops, mild bitter citrus shells, it is easily drinkable, higher alcohol content, but very noticeable. Medium bodied and carbonated.
Pleasure! A good Hungarian beer.
