A "gathering" of ingredients from around the world: Hops from the Czech Republic, and the U.S., Belgian pilsener malt, German yeast, and Scottish water take their own good time to combine and produce a delicious, crisp, citrusy lager.

ThirstyBird (1181) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 17, 2014
Pours a hazy light yellow with a lofty white head. The aroma is grain, mild fruit, floral. The taste follows the smell ending nice and crisp with a touch of spiciness. The body is light and slick with fine, nicely structured carbonation. This is a very pleasant lager.

Bottle from Novomestsky pivovar. Hazy orange golden color with small white head. malty, grainy aroma with citrus hops. Malty taste, followed with citrus hops. Citrus hoppy bitter finish. In short time period this is 2nd lager hopped with US hops and this one is really good.

ruigo (856) - PORTUGAL - OCT 21, 2013
Shared a 50cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pale straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma is light hops, malt and distant floral notes. Medium carbonation and light watery body. Flavour is very light and I could better with more complexity and bitterness. Not bad, but nothing to be longing for.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle at Quilon, with the poppadoms. Light golden colour, decent lacing. Clean and reasonably crisp lager, lightly floral hop character. Could do with a bit more richness and/or hop bite.
