Golden colour with a small head that fades soon, leaving some lace. Aroma is weak, a bit of malt and a bit of citrus. Nothing special in the palate else, flat and boring. Taste has note of citrus, caramel, cookies. A normal beer that didn't fill my expectations.

From Corte Ingles El Duque. In Ikea's pint glass. At dinner, with pampean burger. The very definition of drinkability, and with a pleasant taste with the adequate amount of bitterness for not feeling watery

Light tasting and hoppy for its colour, it's a good session beer. Outside of that it's nothing outstanding. If you like dark beer, this isn't a deviation you'll appreciate.

A: Honey amber with a light haze, lots of fine bubbled carbonation and a finger of yellowish head.


S: Malt, skunk, wet dog, light spicy aroma like red peppers, and black pepper papadums.


T: Malt, caramel, lemon citrusy taste with a light sourness. Hint of bitterness on the end. Malty through and through.


M: Medium body with light acidic tartness and lots of powdery carbonation.


O: Enjoying it. After seeing the ratings I lowered my expectations, but trying it does not disappoint. Bought and drank in Chiang Mai Thailand, Oct. 5th, 2014.

On Tap in London. Pours hazy golden with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus fruit, bready malt and yeast. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of earthy, herbal hops, bready malt, some salt and green apples. Finish is long and earthy. OK session brew.
