DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Aroma is very faint, with a bread malt, minor floral hops, a faint doughy yeast. The appearance is a very clean light copper with a small collar of white head. The taste has a nice light bitterness, with some pleasant dough and caramel malt flavors. The finish is thin bodied, with a very lean texture, a small amount of carbonation, and an abrupt finish. A very nice session brew, would definitely buy again.

AshtonMcCobb (6916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2017
Bottle from the Caley Picture House. Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon and malted barley. A bit shandy-like. Taste - more lemon barley water, but astringent malt this time. Palate - light bodied and dry astringent middle and finish. Overall - ok on the nose but a bit hard going on the taste.

limpide, faible mousse amertume puissante manquant un peu de nuance merlin fait un M avec un éclair magique sur l'étiquette + factoïd sur sa tombe situé près de la brasserie : bonus décorum +3

Tastes like metal. This isn't a bad thing. Great fizz and a nice head. Beautiful amber colour. Would probably not go out of my way to buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
