The_Osprey (3839) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2015
500ml bottle at home, 4.6% BB July 2016. Clear, dark orange, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light and pretty non-deScript with some toffee and dough. Body is medium to light, foamy, soft. Taste is cardboard, water, tissue. Finishes a little chalky with a soft bitterness. There’s nothing offensive about this at all, it’s just very bland.

Gurthnar (3337) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Lots of metallic flavour and aroma, otherwise there is typical British hops character, floral, earthy, but drowned in off elements. Not good.

Shain (145) - ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle 500ml. Pours clear light orange with a slight green tint. Head is quite short, dense, foamy and light cream in color. Scent is mild, with slight fruity notes and light malt. Mouth feel is lightly creamy and somewhat foamy, carbonation is medium, but with a strong tingling effect. Body is medium. Tastes slightly sweet at first and quickly turns gently bitter, with hopiness, and quite dry. Quite acidic. Flavor is light malt, fruity hops, Bitter hops, slight citrus, gentle honey, white dry wine. After taste is dry with notable honey flavor. Drinkable, but not interesting, too acidic and dry.
