Colour and sight: Golden blond, multigrain beer with a very persistent, lacing head.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden with medium white head. Managed to leave the yeast in the bottle despite its opacity. Fruity aroma - oranges and lemons, some apple, distant banana. Also honey, yeast, alcohol, candy sugar. Medium body for the abv. Warming alcohol finish.

digopossobon (115) - MACAE, BRAZIL - JUL 5, 2014
Aroma suave doce de malte e de álcool. Líquido dourado, translúcido, com carbonataçăo viva. Creme branco e espesso. Bom amargor com doçura inicial breve. Bastante encorpada. Final bem amargo e prolongado, talvez em demasia. Alguma acidez bem colocada.

I've had this beer for several times before, and this is the first time I have it with original proper glass. But it doesn't hide its strong alcohol. Very strong feeling while drinking it.

Hanoi (352) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Nose is cereal, yeast slight corn nuts. Taste is uneven, candy sugar, leading to bitter spice and pepper. The alcohol is poorly handled giving an unpleasant petrol note which pervades the finish. Not a particularly nice drink.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Habja krémes és rendkívül tartós, gyorsan fejlődik. Illata különleges és összetett: fűszeres, citrusos. A pohárba töltve élesztődarabok jelenlétére lehetünk figyelmesek. Ízében szintén felfedezhető a citrusos aroma, a fűszeres jelleg azonban hangsúlyosabb. Összességében szokatlan, üdítő és emlékezetes ízvilág jellemzi.

kevnic2008 (7569) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a yellow color with an offwhite frothy head. Smells of toffee, nuts, candi sugar, some spice and lots of malt.
