KoNrRiI (1415) - rhus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A clear, gold color with a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, pears, and faint notes of other fruits. Taste is yeasty, alcoholic, fruity - smacks a bit of fermentation. A full body, a creamy texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is medium long, fruity, and does not forget the aforementioned fermentation. Overall the beer is fine yet very simple.

Beer5000 (6328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2016
330 ml bottle from the brewery. Almost clear golden body with a big, frothy, long lasting white head. Not much aroma, some pale malt, herbs, hint of mature apples and leaves. Flavor is quite sweet, white sugar, pale malt, yeast, herbs and hint of alcohol. Low bitterness. Medium to full body and sweet aftertaste. Its kinda interesting when you know what these beers are about, but objectively its a rather dull beer.

Parmenion777 (243) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2016 Slightly hazy gold colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is grassy, earthy, and some malt. The taste is sweet malt, grass and alcoholic warmth and a slightly medicinal, spicy pepper bitter finish. Not for me.
