christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Straw gold with a large white top. Light wheat biscuit smell with a little toasted almond.grassy and bitter.Quite dry as the bitters rest on the palate with a slight sweetness. Nice enough, but nothing extra-ordinary there.

Garrold (4346) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Shelley Garden Centre, West Yorkshire. I’d hope this was a bit of a duff bottle, because it was like the liquid version of a well buttered, overripe banana sandwich. Which is alright as a sandwich. But as for a beer...

Bottle bier huis ossett. Pours with little head a light gold colour. Slight fruit aroma with hop. A malty start soon overpowered by strong hops. Bitter finish. Pretty good

Dobre Blond Ale ze swiezym i aromatycznym chmielem. zapach jest kwiatowo-cytrusowy. W smaku takze chmiel. Slodowosc zaznaczona ale daleka i w tle. Chmielny smak ja przytlacza. Niezle to piwo jest goryczkowe, sadzilem ze to przynajmniej bitter. No ale jest sporo lepsze od niektorych swoich konkurentow, a nawet bitterow.

Lighter golden coloured ale, but with plenty of body and character. Has a mild bitterness and some fruitiness.

Dendroid (6) - Bawtry, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012 does not count
Bottle bought 28 Dec 12, Best Before May 13, Batch 2963 Clear pale gold, frothy off-white head. Accidentally sniffed the head - noticeable yeast aroma in the nostril. Getting mainly a doughy smell. The dough follows through in the flavour before giving way to the crisp, dry hoppy bitterness touted by the bottle. Not everyone’s idea of a good beer, but I like it.

Idiosynkrasie (6522) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, macropore to frothy, white head. Fruity aroma has a decent apple note, grainy and husky overtones. Taste is initially malty and minimally fruity, some husky notes come in, before bitter hop notes take completely over.
