COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, pasteurised;
It’s rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Nevalainen (393) - FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015
A can, 0,5l, 5%. Bought from a lokal supermarket on Lanzarote. The color is clear amber with stable off-white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Taste is very mild with hoppy notes. Lightly bitter finish. Smooth to drink, but I’m missing a bit more taste/alcohol in it. But anyway, enjoyable beer.

Rhombic (78) - SPAIN - NOV 15, 2015
Pours clear reddish amber with a small white head, mostly diminishing. Crisp hoppy aroma, grassy, like that of a strong pilsener. Flavour is light hoppy with more malt coming in through the finish. Refreshing feel. Carbonation is medium to high, texture is thin oily, body is medium with a clear hoppy finish, on the long side.

njnut (395) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 Poured into pint glass a copper Amber with quick to dissipate to sides of glass white head and limited lace. Aroma of malt and wet cardboard. Taste was malt heavy and mostly toffee with a mouthfeel a notch or two above thin. Slightly bitter in the finish with a slight woody note. From some of the harsh reviews I though it would be worse but it was okay.

hank37 (193) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a bright deep golden with dense off white head.earthy, bready aromas. Creamy, low carbonation. Inoffensive ’high pitched’ hop flavour that is let down by a lack of significant malt presence to balance. No.
