Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is mild fruits. Taste is fruit sweetness with a dry bitter to balance. Texture is soft and smooth.

Hazy golden beer with a sort of mottled head of white and amber from the bottle. I assume this has arisen from sediment in the bottle or something. Faint grassy aroma. taste has the same quality, with some zesty citrus coming through from the hop. Other than a faint bitterness there isn’t much flavour which lingers. Nice though.

Bottle won in a raffle. Enjoyable and well-balanced session beer, pleasant floral qualities and easy-drinking.

beeebon (443) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a golden amber with a substantial white head which clings to the top of the drink throughout. Smell is grassy, floral, slight citrus and a sweetish malt. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, nicely balanced. Not too watery and overall a nice lingering taste. Pretty decent bitter!

TEJA (3010) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle from K-market in Kouvola. Guscher!, Big light grey head with debrie. Clowdy with much debrie in the golden colored beer. Flowery hop aroma in small quantiies. Light acidic with spicy taste and a light body.
