Panzerfaust (561) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2007
Cask at the Coach and Horses. Pale golden beer topped by a light fine-laced head. Very light spicy/fruity aroma. Smells like Challengers to me. Lightly earthy with a very fine spicy quality. Good balance, moderate bitterness. A hint of astringency, but is quite nice. A hint of wheat and some soft orange marmalade as well.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2007
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pale golden with a low firm white foam. Lemon-zest, grapefuit and straw in the dry but light-aroma. Light-bodied with notes of hay, lemon and minerals with mild but long bitter finish of grapefruit. Nice and really refreshing.
