Bottle, at Cardinal. A lightly unclear, golden colored beer with a finger-thick white head. Pale malts, some fruityness and a touch of yeast in the aroma. Some herbs and grass too. Pale malts and fruityness in the flavor, it’s not too sweet, the bitterness is suitable, and there’s also a grassy touch in the flavor. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish, a tad much on the malty side perhaps. Anyway, it’s a pretty decent one, but not the kind of beer I feel an urge to repeat. 140726 Sebilinz (2345) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 23, 2014

Clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Rich, boozy aroma. The taste is a little like a Belgian Strong Ale, with hints of apple and hazelnuts. Good bitterness. A very classy beer with rich flavours. AshtonMcCobb (6604) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery.
Appearance - golden with a thin fluffy head.
Nose - light pine, custard (maybe funky).
Taste - dry biscuits, green apples.
Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - this is gnarly and not very generous, considering the alcohol. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014

Thin white hsad. Hazy golden pour. Very nice sulphursouls (42) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2014
This is a very pale, full bodied beer (using the famous Maris Otter malt and Columbus hops), which comes out very lively, rich and foamy and with a wonderful head. The smell is a sweet perfume, fruity hops with lightness. The taste is of hoppy floral bitterness, with only the lightest sweetness. It has a good body, is very easy drinking and hides its true strength. Great stuff.
