0,5 l Flasche. Riecht fast wie ein Radler. Schmeckt dann malzig süß, leicht fruchtig, angenehm bitter, etwas wässrig.

einherjar (335) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JUN 17, 2017
Pale golden color, small white head. Aroma malt and some fine hoppy notes. Taste lightly sweet, moderate bitter, some herbal and fruit notes. Exactly as says delivers both flavour and refreshment.

MBlessing (1288) - Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2017
Goldgelb für ein englisches Bier ein ordentlicher schaum, im Geruch malzig getreidog leichte Frucht, im Geschmack überrascht es durch recht kräftige Frucht, etwas Melone, schöne bitter Noten grüner Tee und etwas grasig, für ein Bier mit nur 4,1 % finde ich hat es richtig Charakter, mir schmeckt es und in dieser Kategorie durchaus was besseres

Pat90 (4) - ITALY - JUN 12, 2017 does not count
Leggera e rinfrescante come promesso dal birrificio. Intenso colore dorato, schiuma quasi assente. Inteso odore di malto, molto piacevole al naso.

3.3
Zlotta (3188) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2017
0.5 l bottle from local ’LIDL’, best before April 2018. Clear, golden amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity-grassy and a little herbal aroma of lemongrass, pineapple and some honey. Slightly sweetish, moderately bitter, fruity-grassy taste of pineapple, mango, lemongrass and a touch of honey, followed by a short, moderately bitter, herbal-grassy and slightly dry finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice thirst-quencher, really refreshing with a an unexpected and aromatic hoppiness.

ogivlado (7764) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 7, 2017
Bottled 500ml. -from local Lidl Zagreb. Clear golden coloured, medium sized white head, weak grassy nose. Sweetish malty, light fruity, mild grassy and some herbal notes with light bitterness in the finish. Discreet hoppy touch. Not bad for the ABV. I’m generous here because other similar beers from Lidl selection were more or less with higher ABV and even less body.

2.8
SVD (1949) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2017
Bottle at home, golden beer, small head. Aroma is grain, malt, gras. Taste is the same, sweet and bitter, meh average
