Pours yellow golden, medium big lacing head. Aroma grass, floral hops, hay, sweet malts. Palate is soft, mouthful. Carbonation is medium soft and lively. Taste is sweet, grassy, watery. Finish is sweet and dry with some hops notes. Drinkable but pretty simple a beer.

labeerinthum (60) - ITALY - JUL 2, 2015
Lattina. Colore giallo oro. Limpidezza completa. Schiuma compatta e cremosa, a bolle fini, poco aderente al vetro, a veloce sparizione. Intensità e persistenza olfattiva sufficiente, con fragranza persistente e accenno di malto. Amaro non invasivo ma duraturo. Gusto appagato ed elementi bilanciati.

MichaelAwesome (5729) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2015
Wie befürchtet ein recht dünnes und nichtssagendes Lager. Mit ein wenig Honig im Hintergrund, aber das nur leicht getreidige Piwo ist eigentlich geschmacklos. Schade drum, denn die Lionjungs punkten allein schon beim Etikett.
