0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: Malzig, würzig, leicht alkoholisch. Erscheinung: Dunkelgoldenes Bier, relativ flacher, aber stabiler, weißer Schaum, sehr schöne Gardine. Geschmack: Malzig süß, leicht würzig, minimal bitter. Nachgeschmack: Vollmundig, der Mund wird leicht warm durch den leicht erhöhten Alkohol, Süße hält sich recht lange. Gesamt: Solides Bier, typisch für seine Art.

Bottle. Golden coloured leaning into yellow. Decent head. Aroma of noble hops. Taste is spicy, bready and grassy. Creamy texture. Some alcoholic warmth. Ok. In a blind tasting I would have taken it for a Helles.

Tony_Grayne (277) - Borisov, BELARUS - DEC 10, 2016
500 ml bottle. Crystal clear bright yellow golden colour. 2 finger white steady head. Flat carbonation. Aroma: salty crackers, cornflakes, grain, sweet malts, faint hops on the background. Almost like a basic pale lager nose. Flavour is sweetish malty, cereal, grain, grassy & lemony, alcohol touch. Very basic short hoppy finish. Dry finish. Thin texture and prominent abv. Somewhat boring.

Cerveja excelente! Corpo leve, aroma destacado do lúpulo, e obviamente como a família exige, baixo destaque do lúpulo.

Malts and some grassy, herbal notes. Kind of simple in its taste, not very bitter, just very much average. Pleasant enough, but doesn’t really stick in your mind in any way, either. Nice, though.
