Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Flaske. Farven er gylden gul med en hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er græs, malt og lidt karamel og smagen er ligeså. Ikke særlig interessant.

Slight fruity aroma, clear, pale golden colour, sparkling, nearly no off-white head, light body, soft carbonation, sweet creamy malty taste, dry palate with alcoholic and vibrant hoppy notes. Not a sophisticated beer.

hauxe (380) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2015
Rated from old notes. A little grainy in taste but smooth an surprisingly pleasant. Light and airy but not really my style. Turns a little skunky. Pouring more and aerating it seem to help.

ghostbeer (75) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 6, 2015
I wanted to like this one. It was malty but tasted overdone to me. I found it unspectacular and would not buy again.
