Filipbeer (164) - - AUG 26, 2013
Golden beer with white and not very long head. Very nice and curious: orange and chocolate aroma. Also some hoppy and spicy notes. In mouth light flavor (orange peel), medium body, bitter taste and dry finish. Low carbonation. Quite nice beer despite a too light flavor. Amazing aroma. Filip

Piepenhenrich (1171) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2017
Reasonable Blonde, pours light golden, very little, quickly disappearing gead. Not very intense in taste, old, easy to drink with a gentle hoppy bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all, not too special either.

Pours blond which wont be a surprise with a light white head. Aroma hint of apple, light malt. Taste hoppy, biscuit and skightly metalic. Really enjoy this as a regular and at £1.70 well worth it.

mahkus (136) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Sweet, refreshing aroma and taste. Perhaps too sweet. Golden colour, Thin head.

radassace (409) - SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Pretty good, medium bodied blond ale. Honey, floral slighly sweet caramel malt with an orange peel hoppy finish. Could session this one.

Piw (1223) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2016

hackobock (4073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2016
August 14, 2015. Bottle. Tasting at omhper, thanks for sharing!
Clear golden with a smal white head. Aroma is sweet malty with some wort notes, grain, some hoppy floral and grassy notes. Taste is light to medium sweet with some unfermented wort notes, soft medium bitter finish with some floral and grassy notes. Medium bodied, soft to average carbonation.

CroccyLc (13) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2016
500ml bottle from Tesco. Initial tastes of light malt and tangy sourness, followed by a pleasant hoppy sweetness that blankets the tongue. Feels a bit oily at the front of the mouth.
