Bottle / on -tap - Unfiltered hazy, light golden coloured beer with a thin, white head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy (Magnum and Spalt!?). Herbal taste along with a sweet malt base. Leave a really awesome bitterness in your mouth. Currently the best bottom fermented here in Hungary.

Aroma is fruity, mostly of mango, suggests an IPA, although this is a lager. Golden colour, hazy, minimal and mostly disappearing head. Medium bitterness. Pleasant beer, a bit unconventional. Draft.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Cunningham. Pours hazy golden with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with sour apples, yeast and hints of grass and honey. Feels a bit like homebrewed cider, more like fermented green apples than beer. Slightlyly sour with a moderate sweetness and a fairly decent bitterness in the finish. Some of the strong pale lager aromas shine through too, but all in all more interesting than nice. Feels a bit homemade, quite strange but drinkable. (BB Sept. 2013)

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.
