Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2007
Canned 50cl. It pours a yellow beer with a white head. Lemon, pineapple and hops in the aroma. The taste is extremely mild. Weak body. Very easy drinkable. Nice balance between sourness and bitterness. Slight hints of dark bread, hay and peaches in the taste. Not much strength to this beer.. The finish is clear and dry leaving a hint of lemon. Refreshing and very easy drinkable in any case. A beer I will purchase again.

oh6gdx (24920) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2007
Canned. Pale golden colour, small white head. Aroma is slightly bready and sweet malty with some hints of grass and hay. Flavour is malty and hoppy, and that’s pretty much it. Pleasant balance, but not very special.

Beer5000 (5818) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2007
330 ml bottle. Golden body with a small white head. Not much aroma, a bit malt and a somehow sourish in a typical pilsner manner. Flavor is pretty straight forward euro pilsner. A dash of malt, a small indication of fruitiness and somehow bitter. This bitterness emphasizes a certain feeling of being sour when this beer is sampled in the middle of an ale session. Refreshing and that’s it.

NosirIwont (2309) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2007

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Bottle in Austria. Poured orangy gold with a white medium head. A high level of carbonation dominates this beer leaving it feeling rather bland. Still it has some sweet and hoppy presence. Still refreshing.
