fiulijn (20938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2009
Draught at Barcade, New Yorkmjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2009
Cloudy blond color. Golden ale without special features; light hop in the aroma; too light malt flavor; reasonable bitterness.
(Bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Poured ambed and lightly hazy without any head to speak of. Aroma was musty and aged. Palate was light bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavour showed mostly age with some hints of bitterness and fruitiness. Aftertaste was bitter. I don’t know how this one would taste as fresh but it seems to go bad when aged. Unfortunately the bottle had no BBE date. halfonit (1389) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Deep golden color, slightly hazy. Aroma is of sweeter malts, a little citrus, caramel, and slight hops. Taste is pretty much the same. This one has a slightly citrus and hoppy aftertaste. Overall this one wasn’t too bad. A good session beer. omhper (25349) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2009

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, slight cocoa, and a hint of toasting. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, off-white head that lasted as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny, and small particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malts and slight bread. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malty finish. Absolutely not a Kolsch!

Clean hay and honey aroma. Shimmering golden with a thin white head. Bitter flavor of pilsner style hops. Light bodied. Celery finish. Bitter and boring, but not terrible. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2009
0.355 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2009. Hazy orange color. Sweet malty and slightly fruity aroma. Sweet, malty, toffeish, slightly fruity and slightly resiny flavor with low bitterness. Easy and simple. rosenbergh (11653) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2009
355 ml bottle. From the US (H).
Pale amber colour with thin off-white head. Some caramel and citrus but also ginger in aroma. Fruity tea-like flavour with some bitterness. Quite light and almost no carbonation. Very easy to drink but it feels more like ice tea than ale. 6% couldn’t be noticed. j12601 (12973) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
On tap at Barcade. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white. head. Light malt, mostly empty. Medium, light malt, light citrus. Finishes with a slight dry bitterness.

The appearance is beautiful cloudy copper. Minimal head, butg the translucent color is gorgeous. With more head, this would be a 5.0.
The aroma is bitter, flowery German hops on top. Roasted barley underneath. Grainy but with lemon and earthy tones. Very strong, very inviting.
The taste is earthy, grainy malts foremost. Pilsnerish/German hops floating above. Hint of perfumes, but more bitter and with a bite on the swallow. Complex; lots of flavors to admire here.
Medium bodied feel and creamy but also refreshing. Spring-y! Lots of bitter hops, earthy malts and a citrusy respite. A heck of a nice spring-friendly beer.
