Sort of an average blond, decent malt and nice hops, but not much character or complexity. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2011

(thanks Frank!). Slightly hazy golden colour, small white creamy head. Aroma is bready malts, some fruits, wood, yeast and mild sugary sweetness. Flavour is fruits, some yeast, sweet malts as well as mild spices and herbs. Lets the alcohol through quite well.
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.MiP (16083) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2005
Golden coloured, lightly hazy. Interesting orangey nose. Dry and medium bodied. Big, spicy nutmeg flavour, a hint of vanilla. Sparkling mouthfeel. Lingering nutmeggy, dry and bitter finish.
Clear yellow colour, very small head. A bit thin, but with a nice bitterness and a hint of aromatic hoppiness.

Clear pale blond beer, very creamy solid white head, very stable, bit adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: citrus, grassy, bit sweet, some almonds, marzipan. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, little metallic, sourish touch, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: very bitter, bit soapy, metallic, vegetal touch, bitter finish.
Draught Yellowish head, very dense and fine, stable; clear yellow-gold beer. Grain nose, flowery, very fruity-yeasty notes. Bitterish almond flavour. Usually I don’t like this, too remindful of cheap brandy, but in this restrained, really nut-like way, it’s quite fine. Every new sip renews this flavour. Pale malts underneath, grain retronasal. Light, "cobwebs" texture. No new aftertaste, but longlasting main taste. Actually, quite good lighter blonde. A tip? Svesse (9134) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2007
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Pale yellow colour, slightly hazy, with firm white head, leaving lots of lacing. Malty, fresh and spicy nose with lots of grassy hops. Malty taste with initial notes of tropical fruit and lemon, replaced by impressive amounts of grassy, slightly lemony hops. Long, dry finish with a fresh, citrussy bitterness. Very nice beer, leaning in the direction of De Ranke’s XX Bitter. Tasty, hoppy and fresh. Ernest (7912) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Body is murky dark yellow, dense large particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, citrus - lemon), moderately yeasty (dough), with a strong coriander note. Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, dry and watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent, lightly alcoholic. Too dry and acidic for my tastes.
