Bullit (4008) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 24, 2008
Clear golden colour, huge foamy white head. Aroma is a bit skunky. Grassy hops. Flavour is malty and fruity (indeed, grapefruit). Slighly bitter. Disappointing.

AndrewC (323) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Straw gold with lots of orangy fruity esters in the aroma and body. Nice soft mouth feel with some sherbert. Quite a earthy hop on the finish. I liked it.

SaintMatty (5204) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
500ml Bottle - Dark golden/amber in colour with a white ehad. Grassy aroma with some citrus and hoppy notes. Hoppy and fresh taste with grapefruit and a pleasant but not overwhelming bitterness. Bags of flavour for the strength.

yespr (31110) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2008
Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a lacing white head. Light fruity hops aroma. Light fruity hops flavour with a mild sweetness. Light bitter and dry finish. I find this between the red and joker in flavour-scale. Another nice hoppy brew.

Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep golden with a pretty big, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet malty with a light citric hoppiness. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is softly hopped with good chewy maltiness. Fine pine, grassy and citric hoppiness. Very drinkable.
