nephirem (540) - CROATIA - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear golden pour with small and short lasting white head. Ok lacing. Pleasant nose, a bit hoppy with coriander presence. Thin body with watery texture. Carbonation regular to high, refreshingly prickly on the tongue, bringing the hops more into the spotlight. Mildly bitter taste. Aroma of hops and wheat. Grassy, herbal, peppery. Hay. Coriander. Medium finish, moderately bitter. Decent amount of aroma for the low ABV. Overall, pretty good. A bit thin, yes, but otherwise clean, crisp and very refreshing. Excellent thirst quencher for the hot summer days.

Onesimus (85) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Amber with a slim head quickly gone. A muted nose with notes of hops Thin on the palate and lacks carbonation. Lightly hoppy hints if malts giving a delicate sweetness a muted drink up front with a herbal follow through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rich8880 (52) - - JAN 14, 2017
Minimal aroma. Golden appearance but in the bottled version quite flat with limited carbonation. Subtle taste and leaves a slightly bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Light / medium body but a little flat. Overall a drinkable but unexceptional bitter.
