Taste, a bit like old socks. Looks okay, being hazy and amber, and with a nice head. The taste, bitter, very bitter, and a bit sour; like a bitter sour IPA, or something.

nearbeer (5520) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2017
33 cl. bottled sometime in 2016. Foggy golden with a thin creamy film and nice lace. Aroma of funky yeast, apple/grape mix, honey, toast and a hint of dusty mold. Flavors of dust, yeast, honey, wheat, apricot and unripe white grape. Strong undercurrent of pithy wooden hops provides the bitter finish. Light plus brew has medium plus fizz and a definite bitter slant as advertised.

NordicV (2420) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2017
Flaska @BA, Lund. Dimmig gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Doft och smak av citrus, främst citron. Dessutom lätt kryddig belgisk jäst. Torr munkänsla.

TomHendriksen (643) - NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2017
Fles gedeeld met LiekevdV. Het is een mooi goudgeel bier met een stevig schuim. Het heeft een hoppige geur en bittere smaak waarbij de hop goed blijft hangen.

Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 13, 2017
Amber. Lightly fruity with notes of citrus, and some noble hops, on a malty and yeasty flavour. Full, moderately sweet taste that finishes with a dry and solid bitterness. Full body. Overall, a very good "india" blonde. Refreshing, elegant and well-balanced. The additional hops complement the style very well.

Hazy amber, no head. Aroma is light citrus, flavour is dry, grassy citrus and not a hell of a lot else. Decent enough but..... meh.
