Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the White Horse Old Ale Festival, 27th Nov 09. Hazy amber. Fresh North American hop aroma. NA hops on the initial taste too but the palate drops off nearly instantly and doesn’t retain the flavour.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2009
Very pale golden pour. The nose is quite sweet with lots of sweet malt character. A little bit of honey and herbal malt character as well. Lightly grassy nose behind the sweetish malts. It is very hoppy on the palate with a very assertive bitterness. It’s really kind of a mess. Some nice aromatics but they’re clobbered by being too boozy, too bitter and just too much.

dchmela (2559) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Tap at Redlight. Big pillowy white head, light gold body. Huge hop aroma, very aggressive. Nice clean lager profile with a big hop bitterness. Very good.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2009
(Cask, by gravity, at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 29 Nov 2009) Hazy copper colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, resin and pine needles. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, resin and pine needles. Rather sweet with intense hop flavours. Full body, chewy mouthfeel. Slightly over the top and hardly very well balanced, but still a very tasty beer with an impressive hop presence. Nice one.

Golden with a big and lasting white head. Rich herbal and spicy hop aroma with a faint citrus note. Intense spicy and pine hoppy flavour with a somehat weak malt background.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2009
draft @ redlight redlight. Bready honey aromas with spicy earthy hops on the nose. Pours golden blonde with a thick white head, bubbles slowly cascading to the surface. Honey malts, bready malts flavors, and spicy bitter hops, a little sweet but otherwise a solid pilsner.
