Bottle. Clear with a presence of hops. Citrus flavours are there as well which result in a clean sharp ale. Nice.

Camrakipah (17) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
Cinq cent millilitres (short-changed Pint) bottle from Tesco. Pale appearance, looks like a lager but don’t let that put you off! Smells like a real ale and has a caramel and slightly fruity initial taste. Lingering taste is mingled bitter, hoppy and fruity. Very pleasant real ale, probably best on a warm summer day (we do get them occasionally here in England). Enjoy.

Panzerfaust (565) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a very clear golden color with a medium fully diminishing white head. Aroma is soft malty/yeasty with notes of cardboard, flowers, ripe fruits and vitamin C. Flavor is sweet, fruity and nice. Orange, vitamin C, kiwi, papaya and maracujá. Too sweet for my taste. Light body, low carbonation. Soft, fruity finish. Simple, generic and sweet golden ale. Nothing special.

Appearance: transparent blond color. Little head, white and consistent. Aroma: pale malts, vanilla, honey, sugar, yeast and butter. Aromatic fruity like papayas. Flavor: sweet start mainly from the pale malts; light yeasty and some vanilla’s touch. Fruitiness similar to papayas and peaches, but some artificial. Light and ephemeral hoppy final. Some sugar beet aftertaste. Palate: light body and few carbonated. Fruitiness some artificial, similar to powdered juice. Average beer.
