A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small mostly lasting white head. Aroma of grass, some sweetness and hops. Flavour of hops, some maltiness and a slight spice touch. Good refreshing lager.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2007
(Very early rating and very short, I’m afraid) Nice head and color. The flavour has notes of fruit, hops and a nice bitterness. It’s nice.

I guess its supposed to be cool that this is organic...but it doesn’t make it a better beer. Not at all. A typcial lager. Watery and thin. Boring. Blah.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Crystal clear, yellow lager. Huge, frothy, white head which evolves into a small, creamy, swirling head. Spotty lacing. Spicy, peppery, hoppy notes with some mild, malty notes... straw and English toffee. Also a touch floral and citrusy. Very well-balanced with just the right amount of bittering hops. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, astringent finish.

Rune (8937) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2012
355ml bottle kindly shared by Finn at a drinking session. Partially gushing when opened. Near-clear, yellow-gold body colour. Fresh, but subdued, floral-fruity aroma as well as pale malts. Herbal hops and malts in flavour followed by a mild fruity tail. Clean tasting. Drinkable (at Finns in Tromsø, 09.02.2012).

leaparsons (8669) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2004
Golden with a big white head. Aromas are fresh, clean with some grain and hops. Like a good lager. Flavours are fruity lemon, butter and some floral notes. Dry on the finish. Better than some lagers I could mention.
