Clear golden color. thick head. Grassy aroma, hops evident. Sharper than most lagers. Tart start but smooth finish. Better than I expected.

0,5 l bottle, Pours Golden to pale yellow clear body with nice white dense lacing head. Aroma is berries, plums, pineapple, grass, juniper and some malts. Vague orange fruit hops aroma. Palate is medium full-bodied, lively, carbonation is fizzy and mouthful, crispy. Taste is mild, malty with medium hoppy end. Finish is floral, little bleak, and no real bitterness noticeable. However Cascade flavors reminds it a little of pale ale, and there is a subtle lingering from these hops genera. Although it has clear lager crispiness, the hops varieties used, make this an interesting mix of ale and Pils, or just a weak pale ale with papery notes, depending on your point of view. Overall drinkable and quaffable.

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
(50 cl bottle). Shiny golden, clear, with a medium white head. Aroma has some floral, light fruity and grassy notes, though not as much as one might expect when reading the list of hop varieties. It’s a lager, after all. Quite some honey as well, seemed a bit worty at first. Taste has light bitterness and a touch of sourness. Quite light-bodied, making it rather quaffable. OK.

DuffMan (6531) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Very pale yellow, thick creamy white head. Delicate florals, clean grains, light but flavourful, dry finish. A pale lager with some finesse. Better than anticipated.

Eh. Not too much to it. A pretty standard lager. Some grassy hop flavor. So-so.

wlajwl (3763) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Aroma is pale lager bready malts and mild but definitely there grassy hops. The flavor is bread, pilsner qualities, pale malts, very slight heat and a citrus/grassy hop finish.

For a.beer brewed with Nelson sauvin you think the aroma woukd be a littlw less grainy and mildly grassy. Light bland malt and grsssy hop aroma. Well balanced but boring

thegreenrooster (3170) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Wow only the 2nd rating for this beer. Pour is a clear gold with a average white head. Aroma is slight malt but with a decent grassy hop. Flavor is a sweet malt with ok sweet grassy hop bringing things up. I guess this is brewed in England. Decent for a lager, a bit watery of course, but I really like the hops used. They are the focus here.

reebtogi (4085) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
500ml bottle pours a bright golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a nice ring and some spots of lacing. Aroma is light with some grains and floral notes. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a sharp hop bitterness which is grassy with some citrus. Light bodied with some decent carbonation. This brew overall was a little better than I expected it to be. Quite refreshing.
