MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 11, 2007
500ml bottle: poured golden yellow with a full thick white head that dissipated quickly leaving just a slight layer of white. Not a lot of aroma even after a vigorous swirl. A touch of hops. Flavor is mostly bitter hops, very slight citrus notes and herbs. Finshes dry and bitter. Decent.

50 cL bottle. Nice aroma of noble hop. There’s also a bit of spice in the air. Dark, brassy gold color with a substantial white head that even left tatters of lace. Soft feel, medium bodied, nearly creamy carbonation. The flavor begins with light malty sweetness accompanied by a decent amount of floral and grassy hop. The finish is not very dry, but there is enough bitter to cover that issue. And the lace turns out to be substantial. Clean, crisp, and mouthsmackingly good.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle purchased at the Covell Nugget in Davis, CA. Nicely aromatic, floral and lightly spiced herbal hop nose present. Some sweet grassiness is also there. Transparent golden body with a large, frothy white head and nice nice lacing. A bit sweet, malty, and a touch of floral and herbal hoppiness comes into play early on. A bit of roasty malts also make a cameo in the middle. Finish has a bit of a musty flavor with some mildly bitter, dry, spiced hops. A classic rendition of the style. Solid.

Crisp aroma with metallic undertone, flavor is similar with aftertaste of grass and bitter hops. Not very interesting.

zootfinster (202) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours gold and slightly cloudy. Has a slightly malty sweet flavor. Nice tall white head that leaves fairly quickly. Very nice aftertaste that leaves you wanting another drink. A pretty decent beer

boring. fantastic bottle, but tasted like every other normal beer. reminded me of heineken, but was more expensive, so find of a let down.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Poured clear golden with nice white head. Aroma is light with sweet malts, some wheat and cereal. The taste begins sweet and cereal like and then quickly becomes bitter as the hoppiness runs across my tongue.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2006
From a 500 ml. euro bottle with a coded freshness date on the back label. Poured a clear, deep lager golden with a foamy, fluffy, bubbly topped white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, small amount of laced sticking. Aromas of a sweet husky grain, lager yeast and a subtle herbal. Good, steady, even carbonation and a crisp, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of sweet grainy malts, a tart, sour lemon fruitiness, earthy, spicy, herbal hops, and a dryish, sweet malty, herbal grassy finish. Not bad drinkability, I would try this again.

GG (2019) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 17, 2006
rather light and refreshing beer, it does have an interesting nose of oats and sweet fruit. Appearance was yellow in color, nice head with little retention. Mouthfeel was light as a feather very clean finish. Flavors were very smooth, slightly hopped, some malty sweetness but not too much. Overall something that can be consumed over and over and still be interesting and refreshing.

Ahhh a beer made by nuns. I can taste the sexual frustration! Aroma is hay, grains, must and cereals. Color is a very delicate gold and the body holds a two finger thick creamy white head. It’s a beautiful beer that could stand as a standard for the style. Fore is loaded with cereal/grains flavors. Taste like you would imagine steeped grains would from their smell. Even has a little oatmeal-like kick to it. Quite refreshing. Gets pretty sweet through the middle like a sweetened wheat cake or cookie, but it’s pretty damn spot on to the style. Nice find this one from a style that sees very few examples in the states.
