Bottle brown, 330 ml, 11.3 P
Appearance: Pours metalic yellow to pale and bright orange body colour. Body texture is not perfectly clear, head is initially medium and quickly decreasing to small, frothy, snowy white and leaving very nice lacing.
Aroma: Very gentle and faint, some notes of natural honey, some micro hints of malted barley and practically no hoppyness in aroma, heard to say anything more.
Flavour: Old, crystalized honey, later on notes of natural honey. Barley grains, initially seems wattery and unimpressive but the initial impression is definitely missleading later on especially in the aftertaste you can feel nice bitterness focused on the sides of the tongue, binding your tongue, a bit syrupy but not sweet, chalky, definitely the hoppy taste is compared in the malty sweetness of a beer and being strong is staying at the background not coming up front. Finish duration is long.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery but a bit oily, carbonation on palate is light, finish feel is bitter, a bit accidic and salty.
Bottle shared by The_Captain. Thanks Mark. Golden pour with nice head. Had a nice crisp bitterness though rather nondescript flavor. Still rather enjoyable though. TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Swing top - Pale yellow pour with white head. Good carbonation and crisp, refreshing. A blend of hops and thin malts, biscuity with a slight dry finish. A good mild german Pilsener. SilkTork (5849) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2008
330ml swing tip bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale yellow. Fairly crisp carbonation. Thin, characterless malt. Slight sweetness. Dusty, slightly cardboardy hops. Fairly noticeable bitterness which lingers in the finish. Faint biscuit and citric note inbetween the swallow and the finish. Better quality malt, fresh, whole hops, no filtering, no force carbonisation, and some sense of adventure might lift this above the stunningly ordinary. Nice bottle, shame about the beer. nearbeer (5601) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 25, 2008
335 ml swingtop, bb Jan 27, 2009. Gold with a small, but lasting head. Aroma is faint honey and dry grass. Flavor is similar, but with some apple-grape and a slightly harsh lemongrass finish. Light tingly body has a dry finish.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2009 Bottled 33cl. It pours a yellow beer with a white head. The nose is citrusy. Hints of lime, lemon and chestnuts. Grainy. Rather citrusy taste. Notes of lime showing up again. It reminds me a bit of Bölkstoff. Light bodied. Poor lacing. Some bitterness in the finish which is quite pleasant. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2008
Nice beer, but nothing more, so an avarge appearance, body and taste of a german pilsner. tedovertu (298) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 Bottle, Horrible beer. Extremely metallic tasting with chalky overtones. If this beer actually tastes like this then I would be ashamed to produce it. I must have gotten a bad bottle. Poured with no head and a flat body. I will track this one down again and re-rate later. zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - JUL 5, 2008
Taste 7/8. Looks: Very pale yellow, white top. Aroma: Bread, straw, minute floral. Taste: Whole grain wheat bread. Palate: Thin dry and a little spice. An unusual mild creaminess to the body. Would be happy to drink this again. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2008
Bottled. Pale golden colour with small white head. Aroma is saltwater, hops, some maltyness to balance it up. Flavour is quite much the same, with a rather long hoppy aftertaste.
