rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle 0,33 l from Le Palais de la Bire - Aix-les-Bains (F). Golden blonde unfiltred, with short white head and living crackling. Appetizing and fruity aromas, a little spiced, with also grain which we find especially to the taste. Moeover, the mouth is similar, creamy malt with grassy and zesty hoppy accents and hints of fruity yeast and lime.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber orange with yellow edges and a creamy, mostly tight off white head. Nose is nice with lots of zest, lemon, pepper and dusty and a touch of banana candy. Faint citrus hop in back. Taste is pretty solid, zesty lemon and white peppery spice are followed by some earthy dustiness and a fair bit of citrus hop. Light body with good carbonation and slightly dry finish.

ClubGonzo (5568) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Light pale yellow, medium creamy white head. Aroma is sweet marzipan-like tones, pale malts and hints of melon in the back. Taste is mild pale malts and sweet maize-ish marzipan tones. Pleasant in a strange way, but not really that good. Slightly fuller body than a regular pilsener. Somehow I cant help kinda liking this beer, although something deep inside says "no". Strange. :-)

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2012
Its hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of flower, fruit, bread and malt. The flavor has a light sweetness and lovely notes of white-clover flower, bread, fruit and malt, and the finish is slightly dry and spicy/fruity!

kevnic2008 (11568) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2012
Slightly hazy yellow with moderate carbonation and next to no head. Sweetish, orange fruit and grassy hop aroma. Drinkable.

yespr (41884) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2012
From tap at 4:20. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and light yeasty. Bitter, light bubblegum yeasty. Crisp hoppy and light grassy too.

Mortlach (2107) - Rome, ITALY - APR 22, 2012
20/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata spenta, lievemente torbida, con buona schiuma biancastra. Aroma non molto intenso ma meravigliosamente armonioso, sentori di pane (lieviti), latte e miele (orzo). In bocca dolciastra, delicata, maltata, con amaro non percettibile, ma che contribuisce al bilanciamento complessivo della birra. Sorso dopo sorso emerge una gradevole e inaspettata complessit nonostante la sua semplicit di base. Corpo medio, carbonazione molto (troppo) abbondante. Davvero una bella birra, peccato per la carbonazione eccessiva che ne limita la bevibilit.

EithCubes (5663) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle by 18.04.2012, with the grenade pull-top (and this one more pleasurable than usual). Nose is quite sweet with dominant vanilla and lemony citrus. Golden body with a creamy white head. Taste is sweet and somewhat bitter with (too) strong floral-hoppy overtones, the rare touch of German resin and complementary chalky yeast. Full-bodied and smooth, creamy, leaving with a dry metallic wave and slightly sour goodbye. Worth a try, but a little difficult.
