3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Vienna, 2006. Bright, golden yellow. Not so large head. Good malt aroma, slightly sweet, with hops as well. Rather complicated flavor. Strong hops and pretty strong malt. A tinge of sweetness more than balanced by hop bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation. Flavors of grass, fruit. Slightly bitter and also malty finish. Good beer, not overly exciting, but few faults.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a medium sized foamy white head. Fresh aroma: slightly sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of citrus and herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Soft malty and subtle fruity base with a light but aromatic hops-character; a bit slim but clean and refreshing fruity and herbal hoppy finish. Nice one (05.08.08).
