Pale golden beer with a thin bubbly head. Smells of grass and lemon. Taste is sweet, tangy citrus and a slightly drier finish. Unspectacular but tasty. Could probably have gone being a bit colder than I had it.

Holmen2 (3632) - NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Dark golden. Good off-white head and lacing. Bitter aroma and taste of grape fruit and orange marmelade. Creamy mouthfeel. Refreshing and balanced.

Flaske delt med importør Ovesen: flott skum med varighet, gylden. Myk karbonering som gir en kremet munnfølelse. Fin, lett citrus (sitron og appelsin) i aroma og smak. Behagelig og ganske mild bitterhet i ettersmaken.

Left at my wife’s 50th birthday party bŷ Jo Gavigan. This top selling independent ale is intriguing. Described as blonde noone quite knows what ingredients are used - including the brewer! I emailed their sales team to ask and got no reply. It’s rumoured to use wheat? Anyway, little nose and soapy mouthfeel lead to a well balanced refreshing beer of no character. Nevertheless I liked it and was thankful that I hadn’t paid for it.

Bottle in the wild. Fresh hops with citra, some candy/honey. A little yeast. Clear golden with great white head. Small head lasting. Little sour taste, light bitterness, light sweetness. Finish is a little dry, not much. Soapy texture. Light carbonation.

Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Clear golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hops. Flavor is like aroma but with notes of corn and cereal. Soft to medium carbonation and light to medium body with a bitter finish.

HampshirePhil (241) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
500 ml bottle - clear, slight fizz with slight white head which is quick to disappear. Fruity aromas and lovely palate.

ruigo (2948) - PORTUGAL - DEC 12, 2013
Shared a 500ml bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a orange golden colour with a off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, malty and floral. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is light bitter, light sweet with a bitter a lightly dry finish. Overall, a nice beer but a bit too sweet.
