King_Alex_II (910) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Golden color with some foam. The smell is malt. The taste is a bit malty and bitter in a solid balance. The aftertaste is like the beer: not very special, but very solid.

JorgeLee (1572) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle from Beer Hawk. Golden in colour, quite high carbonation, white bubbly foam. Initially tastes like a slightly minerally slightly grainy bitter, but a nice earthy fruity hop bitterness grows on you mouthful by mouthful. By the end of the glass, very moreish and tasty, could certainly be a great all-night beer. One for the drinkers...

Russo (1957) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2015
Golden amber color with thin white head that last for while. Aroma is corny, yeasty and malty. Flavor is pretty much the same as aroma but with hints of hops. Low to medium carbonation and a light to medium body with a dry light bitter finish.

500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Fife, Scotland. BB date stamp of April 2016 (about 1 year away).. Normal strength of hops but a little more malts and some unexpected levels of toffee and vanilla notes. Easy drinking with plenty of flavor for 3.8%.

Lively yellow beer with a decent frothy head. Light malty scent. Flavour is light with a bit of hop and a bit of fruit but not that much of a taste of anything in the end. It’s not bad, it’s not watery, it just isn’t especially tasty.
