BlackHaddock (7672) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Big offwhite coarseish head. Deep yellow body with carbonation. Floral milky aroma with fruity notes. Dry floral peppery mealy taste with fruity notes. Light body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry floral peppery fruity aftertaste with mealy grassy light toffee notes. Nice and drinkable, with some character. (0.75l bottle, Auchain, Illkirch, Strasbourg.)

Clear dark blond colour. Flavour has sweet stale malts. Much too sweet and has a metallic finish.

Bottle 75cl @Auchan, a clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is on fruits, sugar and spices. Aroma is sweet, medium malty, currant fruit notes, peppery hops, bit too sweet. Quite basic.

minutemat (6045) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
75cl bottle all to myself, present from my Belgian father-in-law. Pours gold with medium fluffy white head. Taste is fairly basic but a pleasant table beer with a nice strength.

3.2
erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2013
Golden body, clear. Little aroma, light malty, cereal and clean yeast. Light bitter, simple accessible taste, very short aftertaste. Well enough made but too boring for me. As expected. (75cl bottle from Auchan)

Bottle. Pale golden beer with a weak grassy aroma and a yeasty and weak flavour. Overall quite a poor beer for the style.
