Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay, caramel, moderate hoppy, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light metalic. Refreshing but borring !

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2008
Bottle shared at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Pale gold with thin white head. Not a great aroma, bit nothingy, faint hop on finish. OK, but doesn’t taste of much.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Milder, wenig hopfiger Getreideantrunk, der bald pappig wird und seine Frische verliert. Nun erhält man ein lascher Gerstenaroma ohne sonstige Noten. Wässrig, langweilig, lieblos. Von solchen Bieren gibt es Tausende! 11/6/6/5/7/5

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white, quickly vanishing head. Honey and toffee nose with restrained, peppery hops and biscuit malt. Medium-bodied with passable carbonation. Medium sweet caramel and biscuit balanced by a resilient hop bite. Short, snappy finish. Thanks to Magic_dave6 for providing this rarity!
