Pours like a regular pale lager. Nice aromas of lemongrass and honey. Flavors are more of the same but with some mineral bitterness as well. Body was light-medium. Overall it was an easy drinker and decent but forgettable.

rand (1410) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle 330 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Luminous blonde, average white head, laces on the glass. Aromas of malt and honey, fragant notes of thyme, oregano and citrus. The taste is soft, malted with a honey fragance, citrus medica and citrus, aromatic hops. Fresh and oroginal, a pleasant surprise.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and some good amount of lacing. Aroma of floral honey notes are dominant with some light cereal notes. Taste is also a mix of cereal with clear floral honey notes with light residual sugar notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Not the most complex beer out there but enjoyable nonetheless with great honey floral notes.

Tiene un sabor aceptable. La miel y el citrón no los note. La mitad de lo que recauden va para la deuda griega.

Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2015
330 ml bottle. Unclear pale yellow/golden body with a big, dense white head. Quite light in aroma, grain, some yeast and spices. Flavor is medium sweet, mild pale malt, yeast, spices, medium bitterness. The bitterness is a bit sharp, not in a unpleasant way but not practical elegant either. It’s absolutly drinkable, but easily forgotten.

Gerbeer (2681) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a deep gold with full head. Aromas of cereal and lemons. Flavors of cereal, sweet honey and light citrus. Fuller body than expected. A nice beer for the beach.

obguthr (5088) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Honey, malt, very lagery aroma. Hazy golden, medium head. Malt, honey not cloying. Medium body, easy carbonation. Easy drinking. Remarkable for just how unremarkable it is, but it was good.
