shoestring (384) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Looks nice and flat but has bit of head on it. Very light golden . Very easy sunk. Light grass notes but not a lot in nose or mouth. Actually enjoying it more than rating suggests. Livened up as heated up as served very cold. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Sessionable

Butelka 500 ml. Jasno zlote o bialej sredniej pianie. Wydje sie byc lekko metnawe pewnie przez pszenice.aromat owocowy cytrusy i chmiel. Smakuje lagodnie bez wielkiego chmielu i goryczki. Nic ciekawego ..ale dobrze wchodzi

Kauge (1871) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle from Selver in Tallinn. BB 30.04.2016. Pours a near clear pale straw colour with a big, fluffy, white head. Good lace and retention. Very subtle, slightly lemony aroma with a bit of yeast and floral hoppiness, plus mayble digestive biscuits. The taste is characterised by a slight lemon, its quite rounded and well-balanced between sweet and modest bitterness, which together with the dry palate works nicely. Peanuts note. Light and easy-drinking, except for the somewhat - thin, yes, but - aggressive carbonation. Despite being 5 months until its BB, it still feels very fresh. A nice quaffer. Wouldnt mind having a few of these to accompany some chat in the pub.

MarkoNm (2624) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 5, 2015
Pours a clear and very pale golden color, topped with a minimal white head. Mild malty aroma, some pleasant hoppy notes also present. Taste starts with a moderate sweetness, very watery and light, but with a surprising bitterness in the finish and enough taste. Not that bad.
