Bottled, thanks Bierkrug! Clear pale amber, creamy head. Fruity nose with canned pineaaple, ripe mango and tin. Sweet and fruity, fairly light bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Slick, grainy mait, some tropical fruit hoppiness and a mid bitter finish. Well drinkable.

Leighton (11876) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2010
Bottle. A very generic beer. Totally drinkable, but just nothing special to distinguish this brew. Pours a light brown-gold with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma of light, sweet malts. Flavor is metallic, malty, with some mild roast on the tail.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: The pour is a pretty light/watered down amber color with a thin ring of white foam. S: Definitely a lager yeast aroma to it with some toast and a touch of grain. A touch of caramel and maybe bread. There might be a little bit of orange zest to it too. Smells kind of stale, though. T: Fairly bitter, which I wasn’t expecting. Orange peel, toasted bread, and some toffee. There’s maybe even a bit of coffee and chocolate notes to it. A touch astringent, perhaps. M: The body is light with a moderate to high level of carbonation. D: Not really all that horrible, but I can’t see that it’s something I really want to drink again.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
Bottle from a small upscale liquor store. Poured clear amber with an ok beige head. Aromas of malt and extremely mild citrus. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor of caramel and very light citrus. It is dry. It finishes a tad astringent. Rather refreshing. And some definite bitter is coming out.

rlgk (11504) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Skövde. Golden beer with an ok offwhite head. A bit odd malty aroma with some hops. Hoppy flavor, alittle roasted, grassy, bready malt.

Lubiere (10463) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
A reddish amber lager with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet musty caramel, with light vinous notes. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with light roasted notes, grassy hops, a bit oxidized, but decent.
