coolfunnj (343) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2016
aroma is at first floral hops and yeast,earthy yeast and malt presence as well..nice slightly cloudy amber red appearance with pure white foamy head lacing too no prob with the appearance..taste..like a much stronger IPA but more top heavy than most in a word a well worn and time proven classic would love to taste a ’double or "imperial" version

klaing (223) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2016
Pale Amber with frothy persistent head. Moderate carbonation. Sweet caramel in the malts, grapefruit in the hops. Been drinking off and on for 20 years. See no reason to stop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Japalo (1672) - DENMARK - APR 27, 2016
Bottle@home. One finger foam. Amber very clear. Pasteurized faint hoppy notes. No citrus grapefruit. Some undefined fruityness. DME suspected. Low bitterness. Skunk from the shelves of the grocery. The exp date 07022017. The beer must be rather fresh. A great disappointment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LeoN_ (3) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016 does not count
Wow! Absolut rundes Gesamtkunstwerk. Im Antrunk beim ersten Schluck ggf. noch recht "lau", kommt die Fülle des Körpers mit seiner Ausgewogenheit schnell zu Geltung. Der Abgang ist leicht bitter, was aber durch die Einbettung in den fruchtigen Körper absolut in Harmonie ist.

Maersk (81) - MOLDOVA - APR 26, 2016
Amber color. Small creamy head. Lots of carb and a bit hazy. Fruity citrusy aroma. Unexpectedly sweet and malty body with strong bitterness hovering it. Tastes empty though. Drinkable but not bursting with flavor at all

remALUS (130) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle. 355ml. Price 0,99€. Skaidri, šviesiai rusva spalva, nedidelė bet ilgokai išliekanti puta... geras skonis

UPDATED: APR 26, 2016 Medium-full body, some foam but it disappears shortly after pouring into a tumbler cup. Some light carmel, quite piney.

Bottle purchased at the source. looks similar to draft, aroma is similar too but slightly less citrus and a bit more pine. Taste, I’d say identical but mouthfeel on this is thinner, dryer finish with a little nuttiness. everything else is identical. Bottled within a week or two so this is probably as fresh as I’ll get a bottle.
