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

dogbomb (930) - ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. Very pale straw ale with a thick fluffy white head. Smell is a breezy lemon and peach. Quite a lovely fruity explosion in the mouth with that light touch of lemon and peach, with a sweet malt backbone. Quaffable and pleasant.

Beerheart65 (978) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Lightly hazy straw, big white frothy head, ok lacing. Earthy hoppinesd, hay, malting with nuts and bit wood, slightly roasted caramel, bring czech beer to mind. Medium body, really is surprisingly full feel, soft, semisweet and bit bitterish, long finish dries. Nice and malty, enjoyed.

stevoj (2025) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 17, 2013
Nice soft hoppy aroma, pours medium golden with creamy head. taste is initial hops and then...nothing. Watery mouthfeel and no finish (because there’s no taste). Doesn’t taste bad, just doesn’t taste at all...
