oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. Coppery/golden colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is some malts and spices and that’s pretty much it. Flavour is spices, malts and some fruity hops. Something between a pils and ale...

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2007
Clear golden beer. Small white head. Malty aroma. The flavour is rather sweet and malty. Hardly any bitterness. All by all I would call this a good "pils". Very refreshing.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2007
(Bottled) Clear, deep golden with a smallish, lacy head. Slightly sweet, malty aroma of a typical lager, with some faint hops and vegetables, plus a strange sour-vomity accent. Toffee-malty flavor with vegetably hints, and practically no hops. Medium-bodied, slicky and quite low-carbonated palate. An ale is not necessarily better than a lager - here’s one living proof... A poor pils in an ale clothing.
