Lambister (314) - - NOV 2, 2012
50cl bottle at cottage. Golden bubbly liquid with light white head. High carbonation and light bitterness and sourness. Nose has copper, metal and hops. Nice hops and citrus aromas. Very nice brew, more body to be better.

MiP (14442) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle, 4.1%. Good grassy and refreshing hop aroma. Clear and shiny light golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour is quite malty for the style. Has a good grassy hop note like the aroma. Chalky finish. Full-bodied for the style and the ABV.

Bamsen78 (4271) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with some estery notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with bready and estery touches. Rough and bready aftertaste. Drinkable, well-balanced, but nothing really impressive.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada clara no mucha espuma. Desaparece pronto. Aroma escaso, ñigeramente citrico. Lupulada en boca, frutal. Seca, bastante seca. Tono extraño que no acaba de convencer, pero no esta mal.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear, mid golden colour, with a thin white head and visible force carbonation. Aroma of mineral, light floral hops and sweet fruit. Brown sugar in the flavour, with malt and dried fruit. Finish was cream soda, peal and copper.

Boa cerveja, mas não tem nada demais. A leffe blond é mais saborosa. Veio na assinatura mensal da Onbeer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cimbasso (328) - - OCT 17, 2014
Golden colour with lightly foaming white head. Slightly grassy aroma. The taste has a deep malt flavour and a good hoppiness with grassy and floral notes. Lacks the mouth-filling maltiness and long finish of some golden ales, but is highly drinkable. Nice label featuring Scafell Pike. If this means nothing to you, you don’t know about Alfred Wainwright!

Hoppy ever so slightly caramel aroma. Very light honey appearance. Slight mist to it. Very hoppy taste on the back of the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle quiet lively. Quite a nice taste but not something I would stock up with to many.
