Whoa. This has a lot more hops and bitter aftertaste than I expected. It looks average. Smells like watered down grapefruit juice. It’s smooth and refreshing, but then the aftertaste kicks it. Not bad at all!!!!! Bottle.

Goudgeel, witte schuimkraag, wazig, weinig koolzuur. Aroma: Zoete mout, iets tropisch en licht grassig. Beetje vlak. Smaak: Net als het aroma erg vlak.... zoet moutig, beetje tropisch gehopt.... iets Citrus en grapefruit en iets tropisch mango.... zeer vlak. Op het einde een rustige bitter met een licht scherp randje. Zeer drinkbaar maar niets bijzonder. Light body frisse ale.... that's it.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Clear golden, small head. A bit carbonated. Zesty hoppy grassy aroma with some lemon freshness. Taste is old, a bit bitter and dull. Crispy mouthcoating. Old basement aftertaste.

I have found this bottle, in one coop supermarket, in Switzerland. I have tried this beer on the last wednesday, at home, in Lausanne. To be sincere, there is nothing sexy with this beer, drinkable but there is nothing more to say, boring. The color is yellow, gold and clear, normal carbonation, white foam. The taste is watery, some hop, a bit hoppy, metalic touch at the final and the taste is really basical, you have something hoppy but at the palate, it disappears so quickly, cheap ale.

Very smooth, kind of a typical beer aroma and a good head. Taste has a hint of pineapple and maybe a hint of other fruits/spices. Nothing too fancy here but altogether a typical Hawaiian beer.

Fruity aroma. Light billowy head. Light, slightly oily texture and finish. Very smooth, but not much to it.

September 9, 2017 - draught keg at The Sheaf (Borough). With my wife and our friend LagerLoather on our first Saturday in England - we had walked over London Bridge in defiance of the cowards who had caused so much death and havoc in the area on a Saturday earlier in the year - we had planned this day, to walk the area and frequent some of the pubs where these animals had terrorized so many - we did this on a sunny, fear-free day and we observed NO difference in people, so ... yeah, you lose, scum. Anyway. Clear bubbly clear gold with a small white head. Smells and tastes like a dry golden ale with citrus zest an modest alcohol. Light body and decent carbonation - quick finishing and no linger - yay pork scratchings!!

Köpt på Rost, Stockholm. Helt ok men lite tunn för sin stil. Passar dock till lättare sammanhang och säkert utmärkt till många sorters vardagsmat ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
