Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours light hazy orange-yellow with a fine, white film for a head. Very true lemongrass aroma, lightly tangy and sharp. Very refreshing flavor, sweet lemon and orange, a bit of wet grass, hints of spices and yeast. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some zesty citrus to finish, light dough malts, medium sweetness, some grassy dryness. A pretty solid beer. The lemongrass is well integrated. Perhaps a touch too sweet, and I wouldn’t mind some more dryness, but overall it’s very nice.

Hazy golden with a white ehad - nice citrus aroma - some malt taste in the back to support a good ctirus / lemon tast - this was nice and refreshing

mansquito (4967) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Aku Aku, Oslo tap (72 NOK): Pour is slightly darker than golden, but the bar was not well lit. Aroma is citrus hops and a good helping of lemon grass. Taste is very much on the light side. Lemongrass is prominent, but it is in no way overpowering. Hop bitterness is pretty low. This is a good session brew.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Draught at Copenhagen Ølfestival 2012. Hazy golden color. Sweet lemony aroma. Very lemony and herbal taste with fairly light body. A bit lemonade like.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Draught at Danske Ølentusiasters Ølfestival 2012, Copenhagen
Cloudy dark blond color. The aroma is a bit smelly of dirty water. Weak body, simple flavor, there is a touch of lemongrass that brings freshness, dry mouthfeel, light soapy feeling, correct bitterness. Not impressive, it can be improved in many ways, starting from the aroma.

77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2012
25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // light yellowish amber, close to clear, huge creamy white head // smells of American pine hops, clean, sharp, rounded with a vague lemon peel edge, could be lemongrass but not necessary, almost floral // taste is clean sharp, lemon peel mellow & once again not necessary lemongrass, touch grass, it is funny I am getting lemon & grass but not necessary lemongrass, I can pick it out maybe but don’t think I would have without the name, mellow lemon peel bitterness, plenty of pale malts, bitter grass & dash lemon peel, American hops are definitely more aromatic here than anything else // cork dry, nicely bitter, this is a quite lovely summer beer // a lot better than score appears to indicate, this is exactly what it strives to be in intend or at least that is how I feel
