ShonaIi (20) - HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle at PaterMarcus. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a stiff ecru head. Aroma is very weak, I can only smell a bit of orange peel. Taste is light, a bit watery in the middle, otherwise its mainly bitter with some citrus and a tiny bit of hidden sweatness. Overall its nice, easy to drink, i can image drinking this on a hot summer day, but it lacks any definitive characteristic.

Deep amber colour with orange notes, perfect creamy head. Nose of malts, spicy yeast, some grassy hop. Medium body. Malty taste of rather dry character with notes of grains, candy, some spice, notable amount of hops in ending. Quite pleasant

Bottle, 33cL. Home. A brown orange opaque beer with a big off-white creamy head ; good retention ; many small bubbles ; good lacing. Roasty toffy aroma, light citrus.

twos_een_keun (28) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
Pours a beautiful clear amber beer. Head disappears quickly. Not a lot of aroma. A hint of hops and somewhat grassy. Tastes sweet at first, then malty and finally a subtle bitterness. A clean and refreshing ale. A great alternative to a lager.
