jaghana (6363) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer with huge white head and good retention. Nose is nutty as for a bottom yeast beer. Aroma is malty, slightly sweet, grainy, touch of honey, light apple notes, grassy and hay hops, light honey at the finish.

Tom303 (146) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Light golden colour, malty bready sweet fruity aroma, taste to follow with a slight bitterness to balance but overall a light refreshing sweeter ale and not a million miles from a pilsner. Very good.

MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Citeus and some light hops in the dominance. Easy to drink, maybe a bit thin but with a nice, crispy finish.

McTapps (6984) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a clear deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and malt. Taste of ripe hops, straw, honey, caramel and apples. Light sweetish finish with a nice, low carboantion. Good one - quaffable, enjoyable, refreshing.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Appearance: Clear golden with 3 finger thick white head. Aroma: Floral, biscuit, slight honey and hint of corn. Taste: Low/medium sweet and sourness, with medium bitterness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, prickly carbonation, lingering malty floral finish with fruity sourness in the mix. Comments: Enjoyable and slight lacing.

mmahut (1858) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2013
Pours in pale hazy body with medium, quickly fading head. Aroma is grainy, metallic, malty and little bit fruity. Taste is light sweet with light hop character as well. Body is light with medium carbonation.

elbernays (1731) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 9, 2013
Pours Golden with white head. Biscuit nose. All sweet bready malts and yeast. Slight bitterness. Uncomplex and average.

ekstedt (7007) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle (50 cl) from bierzwerg.de. CLear deep golden, medium white head. Grainy and haysih malt aroma, some faint herbal hops. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with light to meidum bitterness. Pretty dull.

Erzengel (9750) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle conditioned. Orange-trüb steht es im Glas, fast weißer Schaum. Geruch ist trocken- ale-typisch, leicht muffig. Im Antrunk zeigt sich das Bier trocken, leicht wässrig mit ale-typischen Tönen. Der Hauptteil ist hefig-mild, ale-trocken, leicht süßlich mit feinherben Einschlägen. Im Nachgeschmack bleibt die aletypisch trockene Note zusammen mit der leicht süßlichen Herbe und mild-weicher Hefe. Insgesamt aber recht mild-leicht.
--> Nettes Bier, dem es etwas an Aromentiefe fehlt, wäre die typische Ale-Note nicht vorhanden, wäre es wesentlich zu wässrig-körperlos. So gerade noch auf der Grenze.
--> Nettes, durstlöschendes Bier im Sommer, ich vermisse etwas Tiefgang und Aromenvielfalt.
(Test vom 20.2.2011) --> 12,9,13,9,12,9 - 10,05
