Dorqui (2174) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 7, 2013
Draught at "MadreBirra 2013" - Brescia. Golden dirty color, good foamy head resistance, modest bubbly presence. Fresh hoppy and herbaceus nose, realy crude and raw perception. Very crisp and lively taste, refreshing bitter final with a good alcoholic equilibrium.

77ships (7466) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2013
Obtained in a trade with Brigadier. 50 cl. bottle @ home. BBF 02/2014. Lot 256. The gorgeous thistle designs on the label and cap make me instantly think of Scotland – absolutely lovely and mission accomplished I presume. Pours a gorgeous amber orange with a creamy white head, incredible lacing. Nose is full of fruity & juicy American hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, mango coupled together with delicious light touches of sweet malts and candy sugars. Taste is lovely tropical fruits, light orange peels and touch of marmalade, light candy sugar, light peach, fruity coupled with some malty sweetness. Mainly juicy and fruity with only some lesser orange peel bitterness in the back. The light body and ABV make this for a highly drinkable and incredible session brew. Great flavour coupled with easy drinkability makes this one a winner for me. Honestly I am taken back entirely by the low scores on this one because the high drinkabily and excellent flavour make this a real winner for me. If this is sold near your area at a reasonable price, you should really consider holding a prolonged drink session using this beer. For my half a litre went down as easy as water. Also I had fun using my new Brigand glass with apparently holds roughly half a litre.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle@Home. Light malty, yeasty, hint of diacetyl. Golden, off-white head, good lace. Light sweet, light bitter, light malty, light herbal, hint of diacetyl in the flavour as well. But not annoying. Dry, very British.

ClubGonzo (5359) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is orange marmalade, citrus tones, pale malts and hints of grass and bread in the back. Taste is pale malts, mild citric tones and hints of grass and faint sulfuric hints and traces of diacetyl. Light body, medium carbonation. Aroma is much better than taste. Fair enough, but somehow fails to make a great impression.

visionthing (4685) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2013
50cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian (thanks!) Pours clear golden with a white head. Lightly hoppy and fruity aroma with pale malt, citrus, tropical fruits and hints of herbs. Moderate sweet and lightly citric with a nice bitterness. Easy drinking and quite okay, but slightly boring. (2013-06-05)

Pours golden, white a short white head. Aroma is sweet malt and citrus fruit. More grapefruit notes on the taste, with more malt sugars. Finish a bit sweet, but good body for a 4%er.

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle pour@4th Festival der Bierkulturen Köln 25/05/2013. Very light, delicately dryhopped Scottish Bitter spin-off, reminiscent version of Störtebeker Atlantik Ale’s version of an APA. Crisp citric zest aftertaste. Faintly watery, some residual lagerish malt. Exotic UK bitter, light APA? Tasty sessioner.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 27, 2013
The head is ok, the body gold. It smells a bit citrus, mild. The taste is mild, a bit fruity, hoppy. Good basis, but could be a bit more intensive. 11/10/10/10/11/10
