SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with medium head that reduces to nothing. Aroma of bread and citrus. Taste is bready and citrus. Slightly too carbonated on the palate. Refreshing, saved for a nice warm day like today.

Golden yellow pour with a thin fading white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste is light caramel. Little dry finish. As it states on the bottle, it is refreshing.

allanvw (2) - Liverpool, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013 does not count
bottle from waitrose stores. Dark gold appearance, thin head did not last. Aroma clean and fresh with floral notes. A lively beer with a light bitter taste and a dry finish

thornecb (4167) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours deep gold into an English pint. White head with good retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Initial skunk aromas subside to reveal caramel and butterscotch. Medium bodied with sweet candy corn upfront turning to mild, bitter earth in the medium length finish.

Down2die (106) - IRELAND - APR 4, 2013
Bottle from as a. Love the challanger hops in this. Seems to be chock full of aroma hopping spruce and citrus on the nose.Lovely rich golden colour. Not much carbonation on the bottle or head or lacing. A nice finished beer but not something I?d enjoy drinking all the time

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours deep gold with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is fairly heavy skunk, floral/herbal, fruit... Taste is lightly bittered caramel, flowers, light fruit. Will try this again, a little suspicious of how it rated....might be I got a bad bottle.

Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
500ml bottle from EuroSpar Langnes. Crystal clear golden body. Loose white head, some of it remaining. Momentary aroma of hay and hoppy fruits. The taste character is a fine and mild blend of pale malts and fruity hops. Half dry, bitter tail. Crispy on the swallow. Easy to drink and a fine partner to the Easter lamb pie (Tromsø, 30.03.2013).

KansaiBeerLvrs (1338) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 29, 2013
A decent session beer I picked up 3 for 1000 yen at Yamaya. The bottle poured a nice amber with a decent head which quickly dissipated. The aroma was sweet with notes of malt grass & hay. The flavor was sweet, fruity with hints of lemon and grass. The label said tropical fruits but all I picked up on was lemon. An earthy beer which made me think of farmland. A decent everyday beer but nothing special.

08.03.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Meny Karmsundgata, Haugesund. Golden amber colour with white head. Aroma dominated by floral sharp fresh hops. Very nice aroma of soft summer flowers. With this beer, spring is in the air! Medium body with moderate bitterness. Nice bitter aftertaste. Very good beer.
