Easily drinkable, light and fairly hopped beer. Hop flavor is fruity, more of citrus. Don’t expect much of it. If you’re thirsty, take one cold, pop the cap and enjoy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Batch #2, BBE 23.01.2015
Aroma has fruity hops, tropical fruits and some odd grainy, plastic and orange-like off-aroma with some gooseberry bush tones. Flavour has gooseberry bush, berries, nettles, apricot, peaches and some plastic. Also some menthol and mint. Feels stale. A beer of this style ought to be refreshing, but unfortunately this one isn’t that much; too much berries. Gets better towards the end of the glass though.

Clear yellow color with nice white top. Aroma and taste are quite the same. Light and just a little bit bitter. Hoppy blond ale. Not something special but also not a bad beer either for summer beer and that’s what it is.
