Scipio's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Scipio (1111) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a clear, thin golden with a minimal white head. I was impressed with the aroma. It is very citrus and fruity. Lots of peaches especially, with orange, pineapple, and floral hops. The taste really sours unfortunately. It retains a bit of the strong peach impressions, but is actually more bland. Maybe somewhat grainy, but the best description is that it is almost lacking any taste. Thin, watery body. This really began with much promise from my first impression, but turned out to be a disappointment.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Draft at Irish Pol. Clear golden amber. Fizzy white foam. Well carbonated. Easy drinking mix of medium-light toasted malts and mild earthy grassy hops. Feels like a slightly spicy iced tea. Refreshing.

Stultus (173) - ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2017
Pours golden with a quickly receding thin head. Sweetish malty aroma with light citrus and a bit fruity. Taste is malty, citrusy, lightly bitter, crisp, sweetish.

Flaska från SB. Ljusgul med vitt skum. Lätt fruktig och örtig doft. Mild smak med låg beska och sötma. Lite fruktig.

Golden colour with quick fading head. Aroma has some citrus and tropical fruit notes but they barely carry through in the taste.

I had it on tap. It pours orange and golden with a white head. The aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. The taste is the same with some hops. This was crisp, refreshing, and much more flavorful than your average golden.

Craftakt (58) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2017
Sehr leichtes, dezentes Bier. Geruch relativ neutral mit einem Hauch grasig zitroniger Note. Geschmack leicht süßlich, ein Hauch von exotischen Früchten und ein wenig Malz. Im Abgang dominiert dann die Hopfenbitterkeit. Vielschichtiges Bier dass aber viel Charakter dadurch verliert, dass es sehr wässrig ist. Entsprechend leicht ist auch der Genuss. Ein Sommerbier.
