mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2013
Strong hoppy aroma that is quite citrusy. Quite a thick texture with a medium carbonation. Flavour has a fresh zesty edge but also plenty of refreshing hop bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
Smells like a woman’s neck. And not an ugly one. Punchy, deeply bittered flavour underscored with tongue-numbing booze, pot pourri, liquorice, shampoo, lavender and bitter chocolate. Clean bronze with a fine, slick foam dabbing the (Flensburger) chalice. I’m not mad about this one to be honest- too much alcohol, shampoo and perfume. 330ml bottle.

Bottle at home. Blond/pale amber colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma is hoppy, lots of grapefruit, some pineapple in there too. Pretty fruity. Taste is nice, not full on bitter, lots of fruit again, orange and tropical, some malty sweetness in the background. Finish is nice, sweet and orangey, but also citrus bitterness. Very nice.
