Blonde, white foam. Medium carbonation. Very sweet and malty beer. Aroma is sugar and caramel. Light bitterness in the finish.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a clear yellow colour, with a small head that doesn’t hold much, but leave a ring. Smell is faint, but there’s some vanilla, sugar and flowers. Creamy palate, good enough cabonation. Taste of sugar, citrus, biscuit. Kind of goes from delicate to average and to delicate again. I’ll have to taste it again for a definitive opinion.

Belle bière dorée, limpide et où flotte un large col blanc laissant au verre une fine dentelle. Des arômes richement maltés, un peu de fruits tropicaux et un filet d’alcool. Elle est peu amère avec un peu de sucres résiduels. Elle est crémeuse, de corps moyen et se termine sur un peu de sucre et des arômes bien ronds.

50cl can. Clear yellow with a full white foamy head. Some citrus, yeast and alcohol aroma. Medium body with low carbonation. A bit too sweet at some points, but a nice aftertaste.

Heftiges Bierchen, ohne dass es wirklich classy wäre. Süßlich-schwer mit ordentlich süßem Hopfen und einer Menge Schaum. Mund voll - und auch der Kopf, bei so vielen versteckten Prozenten. Trinkbar, aber nicht ohne.

Can. And when I say "can" you know what I mean with "can". A can never, never (!) , makes you happy at all. This beer came out of the can in a very light hazy golden colour, very low head and medium to smooth body. Nose of ripe hops and barley. Taste of citrus fruits, white peaches, grass, light malt, torf, white sugar and bitter vanilla. You definately notice the strong alcohol in it - and I didn’t like that point at all. Not easy, not nice to drink. It is just too awful, too way below average .... and also too can-y. I swear to myself now, never to buy canned beer again - I hope, I can manage it.

Light gold with a lasting white head. Light on aroma, just hints of beeswax and old attic. Starts out lightly malty/sugary and finishes with a gentle sour note. Great on its own or with very light fare. The alcohol is very well hidden.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes mildly sweet, yeasty, and lightly hoppy. Solid on the palate. An easy drinker, but that’s about it.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a light, white head. Grapes, white wine, mild hops and some sour dough. Light, but has a sullen alcholic punch waiting for the unsuspecting. Unremarkable, but pleasant to drink on a hot day with some dense bread and sausage.
