From Oct 2007 This pours from 24oz can a clear yellow-gold with a small head of foam that recedes quickly to just a ring around the glass. The smell is a mix of sweet malt and hops. Pretty balanced. The taste is pretty malty up front. I get some grain and some semi sweet malt and then a bit of citrus, lime, in the background that moves in and it gives it a bitter finish. Pretty easy to drink and though it's not overly abundant with flavour, what's there is pretty good.

Tessic (1206) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 This one poured a clear yellow colour with a minimal, white head. No lacing. Scents include corn, honey and white bread. First swig was really thin and watery with flavours of corn and light malt. Finish is lightly bitter with corn flavour lingering.

jjsint (3493) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2017
Bottle from Brewhouse and Kitchen, Bedford. Clear, golden, slightly carbonated. Slight skunk in the aroma with some cardboard and musty citrus. Cleaner taste than I'd envisaged. Refreshing without the distraction of flavour. I've had worse.

2.3
vinivini (3009) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 17, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden colour, small white head of very low retention. Aroma: skunk, grainy malts, honey, restrained esters. Light to medium body. Medium sweet malty taste. grainy, some caramel. Low to light bitterness. What is 'especial' about it?

2.7
MasDen (483) - Mogilev, BELARUS - OCT 16, 2017
The aroma of malt, grassy hops. Golden, clear color with small white head. Malt, grass, hops bitter in flavor. Light body, high carbonation.
