COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

This is, frankly, a relatively unimpressive, hyped-up malt liquor. The grains steal all of the taste --that is to say that this is sticky, bready, and sweet without much bitterness-- and the hops are missing.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2006
75 cl bottle. Golden colour with a fizzy white head. Nice aroma of spice, fruit, yeast and a little sweetness too. Flavour of grain, yeast, spice and ends up with a very dry finish.

imdownthepub (10647) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle conditioned, 330ml. Golden beer with heavy head. Thinnish but spicy blonde beer, quite dry and a hint of hops. Not fully flavoured and finishes quickly, basically fairly average.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Bottled. Frothy, off-white head and hazy, golden beer. Banana, citrus and wheat in the aroma. Flavor is like aroma, but there’s coriander too. Feels a little spicy. Long belgo-bitter finish. Rating: 7-4-7-3-15-3.6. 051028

Bottle, 75cl. A small, off-white head forms over a sparkling, unclear, pale golden body. The aroma has white sugar, fruityness, a faint spiced touch and some weak notes of yeast. Some bitterness in the end. The alcohol is present, but far from dominating. Overall, a quite pleasant one, easy drinkable and quite tasteful too. A beer I could drink on a regular basis, although it’s a bit too sweet. 120107

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2005
(bottle, best before 05.08.2004) Hazy orange colour with big yeast floaties and small creamy white layer. Dusty and yeasty fruity (orange, peach) aroma with a touch of cloves. Light bitter flavour, medium body. Citrus fruity and slightly sweet malty taste with yeasts with a lemon fruity, light hop bitter and slightly alcoholic but warming finish. Quite rounded brew.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2005
Surprised to find banana notes in the otherwise fruity aroma, reminding me of hefeweizen! Hazy amber colour with sediments. Big head that left lacing along the glass. Sweet and spicy flavour. Rather fizzy, medium body. Well above-average blonde.

Pale gold on the pour. Slight spice aroma and flavor. Some fruitiness present as the beer warms with slight carvonation.

Hazy honey gold hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, pale malt nose, with a citrus and peachy fruitiness notes, sweet floral hops, hint of spiciness in the aroma follows though on a medium-bodied palate with a yesty character, fruity accent, sweet alcoholic note, with a vanilla spiciness, leading towards a juicy low bittering finish.
