worldbeertaste (1740) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Light amber with a thick soft stickly lasting white head. Smell of caramel malt, floral and citrus. Smooth rich creamy body. Taste of orange peel, citrus, sweet caramel with a bitter hop finish. Very nice character and drinkable. Some chocolate.

McWorta (989) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 31, 2012
Smells of floral hops and malt Copper with a light wee head Light bitter and sweet which is nicely balanced, light body, with a thin and oily texture. Lightly fizzy. As it says on the bottle - a session beer. Good in the afternoon on the terrasse watching into a wee bay in Cornwall. Other than that just another generic ale.

Smells of dust and doesn’t taste much better - quite thin and not bitter enough for my liking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yespr (35029) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2011
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is light toasted malt and rather grassy to herbal hops. Pilsner bitter and grassy mixed with a dry toasted malt base. Light herbal into a malty finish.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2011
500ml bottle. Clear chestnut brown body with an effervescent carbonation and a thick & lasting, creamy, rocky off-white head leaving a fair lace. Toffee sweetness on the aroma with mid fruits and toasted, nutty malts. Chewy sweet malt flavours, delicate citrus with a grassy hop & toasted malt bitterness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a decent length, dryish finish.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Clear light amber with an average lasting creamy/frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite mild, very hard to pick out anything other than sweet cereal grain and lightly acidic floral bitterness. Taste is also mild, but quite decent - same, but add more bitter pungency, just a hint of alcohol, and tart apple as it warms - even a hint of dry spiciness. Light-bodied, softly carbonated, finishes fairly quickly - starts with the sweet light grain and leaves behind a faint dried wildflower bitterness. I know I’m supposed to hate it because it’s filtered, but I quite like this, even if it is light and simple - it’s clean and refreshing and not too sweet.
