Palme (2993) - Bergen, - OCT 4, 2012
On tap @ Bayswater arms. This is a clear golden one with a small fading white top. The aroma is light malty with a tone of cellar and smoke. The last part could easily be the guy smoking just outside. A bit anonymous, boring and definitely low. It’s soft on the carbonation and it has a thin almost watery body. Mild malty flavor, some leafs perhaps? Not really much going on her. Low on the bitterness as well. No, this was not something I have to try again, even if it wasn’t any bad flavors here. 20.07.2012

Tom303 (68) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Light golden colour, malty bready sweet fruity aroma, taste to follow with a slight bitterness to balance but overall a light refreshing sweeter ale and not a million miles from a pilsner. Very good.

MichaelAwesome (2982) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Citeus and some light hops in the dominance. Easy to drink, maybe a bit thin but with a nice, crispy finish.
