emartell (349) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAY 18, 2013
Aromas ricos y agradables a granos, principalmente malta de cebada y ligeros aromas citricos a naranja. En su apariencia, color cobre con destellos rojizos, cuerpo medio y corna de espuma de mediana reterncjon. En boca es suave y presenta un muy buen equilibrio entre dulzor y amargor. Al paladar es una cerveza agradable y fácil de tomar. En primera instancia es suave, muy ligera y con un ligrro dulzor. Finalmente se percibe un final seco y ligeramente amargo que dota de equilibrio a esta buena cerveza. En general es una buena y sabrosa cerveza que combina el dulzor de la malta con el amargo final, dotando de caracter a esta buena cerveza.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
(Bottle): Pours an amber with ruby tint, small white head. Sweet malty aroma with floral and citrus notes. Taste has strong fruity sweetness, malt, caramel with some earthy, floral notes coming through with the bitterness on the finish. It’s pretty good, a little too sweet - I prefer hobgoblin to this.
