Dashimus (225) - London, Greater London, - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle at The Laundromat Cafe, Reykjavík. Pours a dark yellow with a medium white head that faded quickly. Aroma was faint with fruit And maybe some caramel. Both a light sweet and bitter flavour with an abrupt finish. Not bad but a little underwhelming. Thin body with very little carbonation.

radiomgb (2421) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
500ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Clear golden-yellow in colour with a long lasting white head, good lacing. Aroma is a bit fruity, some citrus hops, wheat with some malt sweetness. Flavour is lightly bitter, light juicy hop bite, some underlying caramel malt sweetness. Lightly bitter and dry mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes hoppy, quite dry, lingering. A total surprise this was, very refreshing.

Reimer96 (1375) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a clear orangish copper with a small white head that leaves little lacing. Aroma of sweet pale malts, cereal, fruity esthers and a touch of spicy wheat. Taste is sweet pale malts, fruity esthers, spicy wheat and a crisp bitterness. Dry finish with a perfect medium high carbonation finish this off nicely!

This actually one of the best lagers I’ve ever had. Not usually my style of choice but this has great flavour and aroma while still being refreshing.

33cl bottle at The Laundromat café, Reykjavik. Pours clear deep golden with a lasting, off-white head. Fairly fruity aroma with some floral notes, pale malt and hints of honey. Moderate sweet with mild, but pleasant fruity flavours and soft bitterness in the finish. Pleasant.

Bottle in my Copenhagen hotel room. Thanks again to Rune, such a generous lovely Ratebeerian. Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Light airy malt, some floralness. Trace of apple tang and a touch of paper. Light airy finish. Not great.

Bottle., at Jomfruin in Reykjavik. Surprised to see that it’s a California common style! Delicate florals and clean pale malts. Very enjoyable, surprisingly aromatic.
