Hanuta06 (404) - Washington, USA - APR 3, 2013
Serving: from (nitro) tap at Doyle’s Public House. Aroma: moderately sweet and malty. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Hazy, flat, medium-yellow body. Taste: lightly solvent-like initial flavor and lightly acetic, cardboard-like finish with short duration. Palate: light body, creamy texture and no carbonation. Overall: everything was very good but the strange taste.

Tranquillity (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2015
Draft in Canada. Lovely head, just like a nitro can. It’s orange, with a big fluffy head. The aroma is flowery, the taste has some alcohol.

rlgk (15335) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2015
Draught at Leonardo Hotel, Heathrow. Clear golden beer with a nice foamy offwhite head. Malty bready aroma, sourish with fruity notes. Fruity malty flavor, bready, grass, sourish, some caramel and with floral notes. Thin bodied and kinda boring.

Can. Good foam (widget). Minimal aroma: a little malt and walnut. Taste: soft and smooth, slightly bitter and malt. So sad.

strap (613) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - AUG 23, 2015
it has a lot of foam...i guess that’s the appeal. there’s not much taste here, and it seems pointless unless you want frothy

Niller (1081) - Hammel, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2015

AtronSeige (1038) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 19, 2015
Aroma: Medium-light toffee, Light earthy, berries. Appearance: Brilliant gold body. Medium, rocky off-white head. Brilliant retention. Flavour: Light honey, light bitterness, light berries from the hops. Finishes medium-dry with carbonic aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Watery, but at the same time medium body. Low carbonation, buy still leaves a carbonic aftertaste.. The widget does not add the expected creaminess. Overall: I have heard about this beer for so long, and it is a disappointment. The bitterness is very low, which is one of the most importance features of the beer. 440 ml can, poured. 8A. Standard/Ordinary Bitter

The_Osprey (4235) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Can share at Leighton’s crystal meth tasting, London. 3.5%, widgeted. Hazy orange, still, decent thick white head, full lacing. Aroma is caramel, yeasty, bread. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light, biscuity, soft watery toffee-ish malts, low bitterness. Meh. Not overly bad, not that good either.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can from Dan the Man. Clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is thin and mildly dry. Very modest carbonation, especially from a can. Thin pale malts, some paper. Trace of creamy sweetness. Esters and a whisper of something fruity. Light semi dry finish. Macro nonsense.
