ClubGonzo (5070) - 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 (4354) - 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 (3170) - 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

# 3250 ersma: ein weiteres viertel zum nächsten tausender ist geschafft. bernsteinfarben mit mittlerer verschäumung. der geruch ist cascade-typisch: grapefruit, etwas mango und passionsfrucht. der antrunk ist hopfenbetont, bitter, mit leicht fruchtigen noten von grapefruit, die ich nach dem geruch ausgeprägter erwartet hätte. die mitte ist recht bitter mit fruchtigen und malzigen anflügen. der abgang wird malziger, bleibt primär bitter. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: die hopfenaromen könnten ausgeprägter sein, ansonsten für 4 volt erstaunlich viel geschmack. gut trinkbar. 10, 10,9,9,11,9 - 9,35 - 29/3/13

Beerheart65 (1291) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Slightly hazy honey, one finger white creamy head leaves nice lacing. Fresh aroma has bready malting and fruity hoppiness. Bit fizzy carbonation, thin feel and body, dry, bit bitter, fruity sweetness also, dry and bitter finish. Bit watery but would work in summer.
