jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is yeast, malt. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a smooth light watery fruit yeast palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Not sure where the alcohol was. It certainly wasn’t evident. Nice bottle :-)

solros (88) - stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Doft: Toa doft när man går på allmän toalett. Smak: spritig och kan inte fly dofterna från allmän toalett. Känner mig besviken på grund av flaskans form som är rätt udda. Tänkte mig en udda spännande framtida smak men vill tala om för er andra vad jag lärt mig om detta...ni som vill bjuda på udda god öl i en udda flaska...SMAKA PÅ DEN FÖRST!!!
