Karol (877) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 21, 2016
Can from an LCBO in Toronto Canada. Fill date 12 August 2016. Pours a very hazy dark golden color like pear juice. Ugly color. Good head. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus fruits. Taste follows the aroma. Good body. Refreshing. But the color is ugly, like mud. Edit: probably a bad batch or bad storage of the cans. The hoppiness tasted worse and worse with each sip. I drained it.

Aroma is hops, pine, lemon, grass, slight peach - light and inviting. Body is hazy and very pale gold, with a nice persistent head and gorgeous lacing. Taste is very dry. Nice citric hops and astringent peach/apricot flavours. Long finish is unbalanced - grapefruit pith and a little soap, which really dampens the refreshing character. Still a good beer, but it’s not the summer quencher I was hoping for.

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
Draft. Straw yellow in colour with medium carbonation. Flavors are of hay, cut grass, and spent yeast. Very grainy and dry on the palate. Some green hop and dried herbs are present, but there’s an odd husky/papery finish that kinda spoils it. Disappointing.

At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly head, hazy palish yellow color, citrusy lemony aorma, some lemon grass and a skunky hint, flower herbal flavor, soapy bitterness. lemony aftertaste. Not bad at all.

DSG (12189) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 16, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks troubles. Cloudy yellow with a soapy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citric, with a slightly stale note. Flavor is quite dry, with nice moderately bitter fruity hops. Quite light-bodied. Refreshing.

Tropical fruit and straw on the nose. Grapefruit and lemon hops with a bit of a floral on the tongue. Very nice. Great summer quencher.

Can shared with TylerDurden. Hazy medium yellow with a lasting white head. Grassy, guava flavours with pale crackery malt and a moderately bitter finish with a light tartness. Refreshing and tasty.

Raistlin (315) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Pours a hazy golden colour and a white head. Fresh grassy hop nose. Nice dry mouthfeel with the bitter finish, and then some grain aftertaste. Flavors of fresh grass. Leaves citrus after taste and tingling sensation on your tongue.
