yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2008
75 cL bottle, beautiful bottle with a nice print directly on the bottle. Pours slight cloudy yellow with a slowly collapsing white head. Dry bitterhops aroma with a mild cornish and citrus note. Smooth flavour with a light fruity accent and mild sweet corn note. Goes into a light bitterness in the finish - still matched with a nice sweet cornish and light citrus note. Good balance.

A hazy light orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet yeast combined with notes of fruit. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of yeast as well as a touch of wheat, the end is dry and yeasty combined with a delicate bitterness.

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Bottled. Golden colour, not much of a head. Aroma is alcohol, some fruity sweetness as well as mild notes of earth. Flavour is quite much the same, in a bad way, as the beer is totally out of balance and also quite harsh.

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2008
Canned. Pale golden, brief head. Fruity nose. Sweet and thick. Fruit syrup and peppery alcohol is there. medium bodied with little substance and no bitterness. Drinkable for it’s size - but that’s about it.

Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a white head. Sweet malty corn aroma. Sweet malty yeasty flavor. Sweet malty warming aftertaste. A little too strong and sweet.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Super smooth lager. Good carbonation. Clean cut, juicy malt. Slightly floral but with a bitter undertone. Very nice! 2010 note - underated beer. Too much lager snobbyness going on!

Bottle at home ... Crisp golden yellow ... Mellow fruity slightly belgian hop nose ... nice crisp clean but more a mellow belgian triple than a lager ... and from my tasting much better than the 24th percentile its currently sitting at.
