Poured out of the bottle pale-ish gold with off white head. Very little carbonation, medium body with malt flavour hits you from the start but fades too fast, leaving a bitter hop aftertaste. I don’t get any citrus. I would buy again.

20/VI/2012 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 26/VI/12 (2012-640) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the bottle!

Clear gold to light orange beer, nice off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of grains, malts, barnyard, hint of sweetness, some green herbs. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: little sour in the start, lemony, some grains, nice refreshing bitterness. Aftertaste: little sweet, malty, nice bitter hoppy ending. Pretty decent lager!

Clear pale gold beer. Short lived white head. Light palate a little dry. Very light malt with just a whisper of hop. Competent but bog standard lager. Easy drinking.

KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 24/5/2012. Pale golden colour with very thin head that quickly reduced. Low to moderate carbonation. Initial malt aroma. Mid range flavour with slight bitterness on palate. Smooth and clean on mouth. Tasted 3/2/2014. Draught at "The Pub ’n’ Grub", Taupo, NZ. Poured a clear golden colour with a thin white foamy head that retained poorly and laced poorly. Carbonation low with large bubbles. Aroma of malt with no hops. Taste a bit tangy then sour malt and no bitterness - malt dominates. Light body. Malt dominated. Not that good.

At Tap East. clear pale gold lasting white head. Bit of staleness on aroma. Frankly this isnt very good. Stale flavour. Ugh. Nasty

BeerViking (4779) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Rip-top 330ml bottle from Bierpost, as golden as its name, with a clingy white head and a malty aroma with light touches of honey and biscuit. Smooth lightly biscuity body, with caramel in the mid-body, a little bitterness and a sweet yet lightly dry finish. A bit dull, but inoffensive. Would be easy drinking if it was less gassy!

Nice golden colour. Quite strong sparkling. taste has nothing at the beginning, slight malty at the end.

Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2012
The beer in the glass is crystal clear and golden yellow. The head is fine pored and disappears quickly. It smells malty-sweet, slightly metallic and hoppy-bitter. Starts malty and sour, seems somewhat artificial. Some metallic bitterhops are noticeable. The finish is chemically, sweet, slightly metallic, nearly no hop aroma!

2.2
omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 8, 2012
A beer for drinking. Not overly carbonated and quite soft on the palate. Taste however is not too challenging so very easy to knock them back in quick succession.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Golden pour with a small white head. Diminishes quickly. Light honey and grass on the nose. Faint honey malts with a touch of pine in the taste. Not much going on here
