davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 27, 2008
Appearance: clear golden color. Medium head with ivory color, good persistency and some rocky. Aroma: floral hoppyness and malty smells, mainly. Nuts, oranges and grapefruits aromatic reminiscences. Flavor: ephemeral pale-malts in the start. Orangey and dry-hoppy progress with floral reminiscences like chamomile, also, semi-dry fruity notes similar to grapefruits and peel-orange. Dry and lasting final with floral-herbal hoppyness and slightly mentholated. Palate: light to medium body and low carbonation. Remark: Nice dryness and refresh beer, but some mediocre.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Bottle. Deep golden-orange color with a fast shrinking white head. Aroma of citrus, bitter hops, grass, tropical fruit, and bread. The taste is bitter and a bit sharp and one-dimensional, some lighter notes of tropical fruit, citrus, grass, wood, marzipan, and caramel. Light bodied.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber colour with a white head. Aroma is very thin - some hops. The flavour is also thin - with some hops and malty caramel. Sme butter in the finish with a surprisingly small amount of bitterness. Boring.
