From a bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru glass. Pours gold with small head. Aroma of light grains, amber malts, cereal, hay. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of light malts, powdered sugar, minerals, some bitter herb flavors. Overall a relatively simple malt bomb with modest complexity...it’s OK but I wouldn’t order a 2nd for awhile.

mice (1130) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Oranssinruskea olut kohtalaisen runsaalla valkoisella vaahdolla, joka jättää kivasti pitsiä. Toffeemainen, makea tuoksu on varsin houkutteleva. Siihen nähden maku ei ihan yllä samalle tasolle. Maussa makeaa toffeisuutta, hedelmää ja humalaa. Suutuntuma kuitenkin turhan vetinen ja bittermäinen puraisu loistaa poissaolollaan. Hyvä maitokauppatuote, mutta samalla hinnalla (n.5€) saa jo paljon parempaakin.

500ml bottle from Morrisons. Clear copper colour, very fizzy head that disappeared instantly. Floral aroma, floral, slightly spicy taste. Ok beer, nothing special, but the packaging was excellent

A very pretty pour to a full head, snappy carbonation and a caramel color to go with a caramel aroma and a bit of green grapes in the aroma. Taste and finish are both mildly bitter. Nicely done bottle label graphics to go with a solid ale.

zacgillbanks (5726) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Bright golden coloured with sweet toffee and citrus flavours followed by almond and caramel on the finish. Ok.

Skarecrow (1110) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 21, 2016
500ml bottle BB 25/2/2017 Fruity ester aroma with a strong hint of cardboard. Poured light amber with OK head. Mild bitterness is followed by grainy thin finish and more cardboard. Disappointing.

Floral hop aroma. Cloudy amber colour with poor head. Aromatic hop flavour with a bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Pours a clear dark golden colour, with a slight head, which quickly disappears. Aroma of hops and slight fruitiness. Flavours of hops and fruit, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Pretty bland offering refreshing enough on a hot summers evening bottle at home from morrisons hint of orange honey

3.2
Svarun (184) - - MAY 13, 2016
Orange to copper color, head is minimal. Floral and fruity aroma. Average bitterness, well balanced. Good but not really impressive. Too expensive.
