2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Drank this beer and the other Simon beers many times on vacation in Luxembourg.
White head with a clear darker yellow to golden orange colored beer.
Smell some hops, some grains, herbs and malts with more malts than it’s pils brother.
The taste is also more maltier, but still not much malty. There are some light hops and more bitterness, some grains herbs and wheat. There are even some light light fruity tones in the far distance.
Bitter herby malty aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft tingly mouthfeel, low to medium body and a light watery texture.

Bottle. Pours golden colour with a small white head on top. Good carbonation in the glass and it leaves great lacing. Aroma of grass, hay and grains, nothing special but no skunk. Flavour is fresh, light bitter and medium carbonated mouthfeel. Easy drinkable, good session beer.

October 2008: Brown 33cl bottle, the last of my beers from Luxembourg during my 5 beer review evening.
Poured, like all the other beers on the night, into my Veltins Pilsner glass.
Golden, pale yellow with a white foaming head, clear and clean looking, just like a Lager/Pilsner should.
Normal odourless lager score of 3.
The taste was flowery and sweetish, the alcohol was also detectable throughout the drink.
It lacked any real body, the alcohol came through too much and made the beer feel watery because there was nothing else to play against it.
An average beer (3rd in my scoring out of 5 beers).

Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of grain, lemons, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, leading to a dry, bitter, and hay-ish finish.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Bildet zwar wenig Schaum, aber der Geschmack is sehr angenehm und es perlt herrlich im Glas. Ein gutes Bier aber kein Überflieger, und das Etikett is echt verdammt hässlich :-D
