A little dark golden colour, with bright white head. Head stays nicely after every taste. Some bitterness in the palate, refreshing aftertaste with hints of fruit flavors.

Very clear and dark red colour with nice bit white-pink head. Aroma is grassy, vanilla and bit hops. Taste is light bit water like. After gives some hops but won’t last too long. Neeh...

0.56 l on tap at Guinness Pub Ljubljana. Dark red/amber color with thick constant brownish head. Some fruity aroma with medium sweet taste and bitterish aftertaste. Light body, almost watery aroma. Really diluted beer, disappointed.

Shain (156) - ISRAEL - NOV 11, 2015
On tap, 500ml. Pours dark reddish brown with a short, thick, creamy head. Body is light and mouth feel is watery. Carbonation is medium low. Tastes mildly sweet with some herbal bitterness. Flavors of dark malt, light hops, flat tasting, herbal. Tastes like malta (aka wheat soda). Boring and watery enough to be unpleasant.

440ml can with nitrogen widget. Poured into an English pint glass. Takes a while to settle with a lava like bubbles streaming to the top to produce a super tightly packed eggshell white head that you could float a spoon on. Slightly ruby brown in colour. Creamy mouthfeel and flavour. Mellow with a somewhat bitter sweet finish. Best part is the mouthfeel with the flavour being OK. The more you have the better it tastes.

Gaelic (62) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Amber coloured ale. Small white, creamy head. Taste of fruit, malt, quite dry. Not very special

SkillsFactory (273) - ITALY - OCT 23, 2015
Alla spina, rossa limpida, schiuma beige chiara molto persistente. Molto beverina ed equilibrata ma decisamente niente di speciale, bel corpo, oleosa, malti tostati, aromi abbastanza leggeri.

DrNosha (649) - Baden Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
Vom Fass. Rotbraune klare Farbe, cremiger Schaum. Röstmalz und Trockenfrüchte in der Nase. Geschmack weniger fruchtig. Die Röstaromen und leichte Säure dominieren.
