Bottle at home from Anstei for European summer santa, cheers andreas!
pours pale brown with frothy tan head. Quite light in body, rather sweet, toasty, brown malt, moderate bitterness. Not enough hop character to be referred to as "USA"

Bottle from Beers’n’more. Clear cascade aroma and it looks brown, but there’s not so much brownness otherwise in this beer. It is more malt-dominant than others, but not as much as usual; Some caramel and nuts. The highly crisp carbonation doesn’t help with that either. Still has a nice spring-like aroma and a fresh taste to it, making it quite pleasant to drink.
