AlchemikalGab (43) - Borgomanero (Novara), - SEP 18, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a beautiful deep golden colour, amber-ish at times, with a thick, lasting, off-white head. The aroma is the thing I liked the most about this beer: aggressive grapefruit at first, then tangerine, even a softer apricot and a touch of honey. Light bodied and not really balanced in the mouth (lacks a bit of maltiness), still does the job itís been designed for. 33 cl is really not enough. Could do from the bottle, as suggested, but the aroma was really elegant, would have been a pity to miss. Very short aftertaste, but leaves your mouth clean and dry.

HammerTroll (335) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2014
Hazy golden color, minimal white head. Fruity and hoppy nose. Very nice fruity aroma with some citrus and hoppyness. Strong bitter kick with long bitter finish. Kind of watery, though. Medium body, average carbonation. All in all, great!

MarkoNm (439) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours clear amber color, topped with a solid tan colored head. There is a very pleasant aroma of citrusy malts, and some other fruits as well. The taste is decently bitter, slightly fruity in the finish. Nice stuff.

Beertobealive (205) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2014
Large foamy beige head with lots of hops and flower flavors. Clear Orange body. Very bitter and spicy taste. Tastes strong for 4,6%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BillHick420 (419) - North Dakota, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
Pours amber/honey with a slight tanned head. Resinous hops on the nose, fruitiness, pine. Refreshing hops, with a backdrop of sweet malts. Foamy mouth feel, a bit sticky. Good.

JDBaker11058 (1216) - Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Appearance: muddy brown, like a chocolate milk spiked with cola, frothy, bubbly light tan head and generous lacing. Aroma: wet cardboard, light grassy and hay notes, a bit of granite, and some toasty brown bread. Taste: toasty bread, slightly crackery, with a bit of lemongrass, pipe tobacco, and earth. Finish: abrupt and lightly toasty, with a watery minerality. Notes: Terrible. Iím convinced this must have been a bad/old bottle, because my experience was far outside those of other raters and descriptions, as well as prior exposure to the excellence of this brewer. Watery, with flavors and appearance nowhere near the traditional pils, and certainly not seeming like a premium lager (or premium anything).

VDuquerroux (224) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow orange opaque beer with a medium white head. Many thin bubbles. Medium persistence. Good lacing. Intense (like Wow!!) exotic fruity aroma, grapefruit, melon and many other fruits I cannot name, resin, "spices". Dry heavy bitter taste. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lasting dry bitter finish. Overall, a great hoppy beer, and fruity as hell or heaven, I guess !

djoeye (1230) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
Tall off white head. Clear beer-golden body. Aroma with hops, grapefruit peel, lemony hops, lemony malts, very fresh and inviting to the nose. Taste is lots of lemony hops, mild wort, mild malts, dominating citric herbal stuff, not too bitter. Fresh normal nice on palate. Finishes nasty, bread, bitter, the good brew.

Rosslew (185) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
Light aroma with a bit of fruit. Bit of tropics, citrus and malt with bitterness in the middle. Not spectacular but more than pleasant. 330ml. 4.6%. 1.2 std drinks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hop_Hedonist (231) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2014
The Rolls Royce of lager - as far removed from the commercial mass produced Euro lager of my youth as can be - Iíve always hated lager as an adult but this is pleasurable - a classy hoppy delight.

Cloudish golden color with minimal white head. Thin body, a bit watery. Aroma is hoppy, fruity. Bitter aftertaste. Good one.
