Pours a bit hazy golden with small foam. Aroma is strongly fruity, mango, grain, something sweet and some sourness. Taste has strong influence with cucumber and citrus water. Otherwise fruits, mango, sweet malts, grain, caramel. Little bit watery, but well balanced. After taste is a mixture of sweet grain and hops. Pretty good beer!

brewtalita (237) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 15, 2016
Golden color, stable low head, fizzy appearance. Aroma grapefruit, grapes with spicy earthy finish. Palate medium, carbonation high. Taste citrus, rose water, with herbal notes in finish and delicate english hop spiciness. Finish dry and bitter, long lasting. Big surprise, this one is thoroughly drinkable for a supermarket beer.

Jyrsa (491) - - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle from somewhere in Estonia based on bottle markings. Pours clear light yellow with a light white head. Sweet nose with peaches, caramel malt and citrus. Slightly salty with refreshing hoppyness, albeit not very hoppy. Light body, thin and lively with an astringent finish. Nice and a refreshing change.

Bearinlondon (23) - Greenwich, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Nice thin foam with fruity smell of peach and mango more than orange as on the label. Very mild hops with peach to mango taste and no after taste or bitterness. Supringsly good with the chance of being the beer of choice before going out .

rotaman14 (561) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2015
Clear amber body, small white head. Aroma of barnyard, pinecones and apples, rather weak though. Taste is moderately bitter, very malty, mellow, caramelly. Pleasant enough drink, but really nothing mindblowing.

thirstyrabbit (1743) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle. Aroma has fruity hops with some tea. Medium to light mouthfeel for the ABV. Taste has English hops with tea and light fruitiness. Drinkable but somewhat thin and uninteresting. Too weak in every way to call it an English Strong Ale.
