3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles, but the head doesn’t lasts for much time, and not much lacing down the glass.
Aroma: A nice collection of hops, sweet malt, tropical fruit and slight citrus.
Taste: Crisp light malt with some bitterness. A little grassy, and quite ’clean’ compared to what the aroma hints at.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Fairly dry to the finish, with a very slight astringency.
Overall: A very easy to drink beer, but nothing special. IMHO, it could probably do with either a tad more flavour hops or a bit more sweetness to balance the astringency.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fra fat på CBC mai-13: en lett og floral øl som sikkert er en super forfriskning i varmen Down Under. Her gjør den meg ingen tjenester. Vanskelig å hevde seg med 4,7% i et landskap av heavy duty stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appears yellow and with a fluffy white head and plenty of sparkle. The aroma is of sunflowers, golden grains and some lemon zest - light and enticing. My impression of the flavour is that it is light and sessionable, so it does what it sets out to do. It is spritzy and floral, light and fluffy. Not a lot for the likers of heavy beers (myself included) but serves its purpose.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle. Pours hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, passionfruit, honey, some esters, a little malt and yeast. The aroma promised so much but there’s not a great deal going on in the flavour; fairly subdued, a little wheat and yeast, some esters, low bitterness and sweetness. Light body, soft carbonation and a short finish.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice beer for a hot summers day. Poured a little too light and clear for me which raised concerns about the flavours which had light citrus undertones.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a crystal clear light yellow colour with a white frothy head. The aroma is malty, but a little on the weak side. The flavour is medium bitter, hoppy and a little zesty. It’s a refreshing beer no doubt and that hoppy bitterness was very evident on the palate. I don’t think I’d go out of my way to drink it again, but I’d be happy if this beer was my saviour on a hot summer day sometime in the future.
