Bottle 355 ml. Hoppy taste and aroma, but somehow dull and not greatly balanced. Need to repeat it sometime.

De color anaranjado con espuma persistente. Floral y cítrica, con el fondo dulce maltoso de la malta Caramelo. Buen cuerpo y final ligeramente amargo. A día de hoy un clásico!

The only reason I don’t rank this higher is because sometimes, I’ll get a particularly bitter one. But I’ve had enough outstanding ones to know that this is a really good beer.

One of my all time favorite "go to" beers. I look for it on tap at every bar I visit, and I know that if nothing else, I’ll be able to enjoy a good tasting pint if they have nothing else promising locally. Just the right amount of bite, beautiful golden color, and well-defined but not too much head. I love it!

brewtalita (127) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 7, 2015
Golden color, clear, nice thick white head. Aroma of freshly baked bread and lime peel. Palate medium, high carbonation. Taste full and very balanced. This beer is stable like a rock. Drinkable on any occasion. Light maltiness go well with very decent citruses and pine resin in finish. This gets never too old for me :)

A bit sweet for the style but it works. Kind of like a hoppy Oktoberfest. Refreshing and has a clean aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer, but I think it is just overrated. Or we are not getting too fresh beer over the ocean.

One of the most rated beers in the database, and finally I got to try it, thnx to Hippoman for sending me this bottle. Pours a clear light orange, light amber beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is rather malty, grainy, grassy and leafy. Flavor is bittersweet with a good amount of citrussy hoppy notes alongside some sweet maltier notes. Well balanced, could’ve been a bit fresher in my opinion, but hopefully I will come across this again. Softly carbonated, short aftertaste and just a decent beer.
