KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light puddled film and medium collar and had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of a lightly sweet grain malt, floral hops and a doughy yeast with a note of caramel and a mild fruity ester. The taste was rather malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a pronounced grainy feel from the start, becoming lightly hoppy with a slight adjunct presence and a light fruitiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow and had a light spicy sweetness at the very end. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a good refreshing brew with an unpretentious taste and a great drinkability...

On tap at Cartopia. Not much going on here. Plain gold body, with a slight head. Nose is hoppy. Taste pretty nondescript, with some hops.

slowrunner77 (9620) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Floral aroma and dry finish as advertised. Nothing really catches your interest in the middle, though. Pale in color, light in body, light toast, cream and floral hops. Meh. 22.

tightslice (848) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is rain-soaked cardboard, some floral notes, maybe some grassy, herbal pils vibes. Taste is sweet and floral, creamy but sickly. Is there a particular reason this is on the 1001 beers to try before you die list? Not a fan in any way. Dumping out.

355ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Clear golden yellow colour with slight traces of yeast sediments; Three quarter finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for one minute. beautiful sticky lacing with fizzy small carbonation; Fragrant but slightly pungent aroma of malt, with floral, raw plum, apricots, yellow fruits, honey, sugar, dry biscuits, strong yeast, light lemon and fair grass; Close to light sweet taste of Pils malt, with light apricots, light floral,molasses notes, dry biscuits, strong yeast, lemon, moderate bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Dry, criso and slick palate; Mouth feel is full Pils maltyness in a rather smooth and light background. Very dry like a Belgian White, with some light but good apricots and floral tightly hugging the dry biscuits. Nice!... Hoppiness is floral, yellow fruits, light lemon and light grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is moderate to strong for a lasting, mid-astringent malty yeasty finish; Dry after taste; Crisp, fruity and fairly bitter to mouth.

This is a very nice play of Ale and Lager, with excellent head and lacing, full Pils maltyness, dry crisp to the tongue, fruity aroma and taste, and a strong Hallertau like hoppy finish. What more can I say, this is simply enjoyable!
