Tap at Sweenys Bar, Dublin. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is grainy malt, light tropical fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light smooth refreshing fruity dry hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

lmojoh (597) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2017
Flaske kjøpt på Extra Hamna. Aroma sitrus, frukt, humle, noe søtlig i kanten. Utseende klar gylden med hvitt skum som holder. Smak noe bitterbesk i starten, sitrus, humle, karamell. En grei øl med litt bitterhet, men besk i starten, går over i karamell og søtlighet i ettersmaken som redder ølen. ---

pitch992 (188) - SLOVENIA - FEB 1, 2017
On tap. Fruity notes, caramel and some grasiness. The hop notes actually carry on in the taste, the bitterness is not too bad. Well rounded and drinkable, although could be a lot better. Does its job of appealing to the masses well.

tfredvik (1859) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2016
Crystal clear golden body with a large, creamy, white, very long-lived head that settles as a fully lasting layer of foam, excellent lacing. Quite strong and pale lager-like aroma of pale malt, wet hay and faint fruits, with some citrus in the back. Moderate flavour that follows the aroma. Light sweet taste with light to moderate bitter grassy finish. Light and dry on the palate. Zzzzzzz.

Jak na globalne piwo to jest super. Bardzo wytrawne pachnace wyraznie aromatycznym chmielem, Jasne slody, jasny kolor i biala spora pianka, srednio trwala ale zachowujaca fajny aromat piwa. W smaku niby delikatne, ale porzadnie chmielne i wytrawny dlugi finisz. Butelka i etykieta to pelna elegancja
