sunstoneale (28) - MOLDOVA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle. Pours clean golden, very low head that evaporates quickly. Rich grape, wine, floral aroma - pure Nelson Sauvin - but on a colder side of the spectrum. Light body, a bit of malt in the taste, followed by white wine flavor and finished off with dry hoppy bitterness. A very nice light refreshing beer, like a hoppy pilsner with an emphasis on the aroma.

dnicolaescu (1518) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 18, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden, white head with good lacing. Aroma is basically New World hops, mando, tangerine, grapefruit, a hint of cat piss. mellow and rounded - no sharper edges. The taste is clean as a lager and hoppy as a pale ale - citrus, grapefruit, lemony. Citrus and resiny bitter finish. The body is super clean and light to almost watery. A good clean hoppy lager.

500 ml bottle. Pours golden with small white head. Aroma of citrus, floral and hops. Medium body and carbonation with bitter finish. Taste is floral, hoppy and crisp. Very nice combination of IPA and lager.

Dunc1981 (36) - - OCT 16, 2015
Crisp & hoppy, it's a decent lager/IPA hybrid. There's definitely a bitterness there, but it's counterbalanced by the crispness of the lager. Does what it says on the tin! Is it the only such hybrid in the world? That I can't say, but this one's fine by me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ianwelby (870) - SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Clear golden beer with a thin foamy white head. Sour, fruity smell with a hint of lemon coming through. Flavour has the same qualities with the lemon coming slightly more to the fore, but there’s a slight doughiness to the flavour too. Aftertaste is a touch tart. Crisp and drinkable.

bhensonb (13228) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsbury’s. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus/floral. Near med body. Flavor is citrus/floral with a strong herb/grass component. Nice, but light, malt support. It is hoppy and bitter. In the US this would be a session IPA or similar. Or IPL.

gegwilson (2526) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle from a Tesco in Oban. Golden with a frothy white head. Lemony citrus aroma. The taste has quite a bit of of citrus hop flavour and a touch of grapefruit too. There’s a little underlying caramel. Nicely light and refreshing. Very nice for summer drinking.

ManVsBeer (6891) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Prestwich. Straw-blonde coloured with a thin head. There’s certainly a fusion of styles here with lager malt most evident in its nose. There’s some malts, but much more hop, and very much an ale texture. Mildly fruity.
