darker than one is used to for the style, and fairly flavorful as well. better than average, but not wuite a standout, as it’s #2 rank implies. good dose of hopping and crisp malt sweetness make this a nice summer quencher."
not as good on repeat visit.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Abbey-style blond session beer since 2013, with snow white, sticky head and colour of ’old gold’. Aroma of green apple, iron, grains, banana, honey, grapefruit, cauliflower. Dry fruitiness, grainy, bit metallic, retronasal hint of DMS and low hop bitterness in the finish - need I say more?

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml cork and caged bottle. Pale gold, perfectly clear, with an average, creamy, moderately persistent bright white head. On the nose grain and corn mainly, some light fruit esters, light toffee, cardboard and booze. Fizzy, cloyingly sweet, massive wet cardboard taste upfront. Malty, a bit astringent, no fruitiness and hoppiness whatsoever. The alchool is well hidden, but it’s not easy to drink at all. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Tastes like a cheap macro lager with lots of brown/dark sugar added and a slightly bigger body. Almost drain pour.

dość delikatny zapach, lekko drożdżowy. słaba i brzydka piana, kolor złoty, klarowny ale jak nie naleje się ostrożnie to jest dużo bardzo brzydkich frędzli. w smaku dość wytrawny, lekko bananowy i drożdżowy.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very clean body and fizzy bubbly ugly head. Very sweet grainy smell, cheap, sugar water, urine. Taste is even more like sugar water without any character and way too sweet. Of course no hop to be found at all. What a terrible brew. Looks horrible, smells horrible, taste crap. I should have know better than wanting to tick another beer. (50cl can at Auchan in Tours)

750 ml bottle Pours golden with a long lasting, foamy white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is grassy hops, candy sugar and bready malt. Finish is long, slightly hoppy and spicy. This brew reminds me of industrial lager.
