"A light and refreshing beer. A surprisingly full mouth-feel with a superior balance of malt and hop, and a rewarding fruit finish."

Quite nice for a Jock brew. Surprisingly yellow in colour. Sweet a tad flat and tasteless.

Bottle at ÅBF08. Teaish hop aroma. Hazy yellow colour. Small lacy white head. Mild flavour, some hops. Gets a little green apple.

Yellow with a lasting white head. Aroma is malty and fruity, including a note of pear. Sweet and fruity, rather boring flavour.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2008
Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours slight cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Mild spiced hoppy aroma. Flavour is light hoppy and with a mild breadish note. Medium dry and bitter. Light citric and breadish finish. Refreshing and uncomplicated.

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle @ Aarhus, 2008.
Pours pale hazy golden with a small, creamy white head. Aroma has a little ’wet dog’ character, good grassy hops and a slight smokiness. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour has a little washing powder feel at first, but then turns okay malty, biscuity with a good dry hoppy finish. Okay.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Golden with a low head, but it leaves nice lace. The aroma has notes of malt and flower. The flavour is sweetish in a nice way, and it has notes of fruit, flower and roasted malt, and the finish is rounded by honey like sweetness. There is a lot of flavour in this only 3.8% beer!

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2007
Bottle: Golden coloured, mid-sized lacing white head, light fruity (citrus)-malty nose with a distinctive hoppy touch; light to medium bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; sweet-flowery-hoppy finish, a bit lingering, with a fruity-zesty touch. O.K., refreshing and clean.........

TBone (11917) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2007
Bottled (BB 12/2008)
Pale golden color, very small white head. Nose is nutty hoppy, light notes of oak, vanilla and aromatic hops. Light, almost watery, pale malty with yeast flavors and vague apricot hints. Must be a lot of better in the cask. Now bland.
