Geiserich (3411) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de: Pale amber color, off-white head. Aroma of pine, resin, wood, some herbal notes, hay. Flavor is malty, light to medium sweet and caramelic, followed by resinous and piney hop notes, wood, herbs, bitter hops. Dry, quite bitter finish. Interesting but to few fruity notes for me.

BeerSkull (1308) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2014
(Bottle). Pungently spicy aroma of hops, caramel, malt and tropical fruits. Oddly "floating" flavor of hops, pine, grapefruit, raisins and salty licorice in the finish. Dry bitterness with an acrid and oily touch.

veceo (544) - CROATIA - AUG 24, 2014
Clear amber color, thin white head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma of pine, resin, malt and a touch of fruitiness. The least interesting of all four beers.

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 075, BB 19/03/2015. Houblon nouveau finalement nommé Equinox. Orangée-léger ambrée, col beige. Arôme est fruité, léger tropical sur rétro d’agrumes restant tout de même assez neutre. Palais offre un profil malté plus marqué et gardant cette base de pâle. Pointe d’amertume houblonnée correcte, un peu huileuse, sèche et herbacée. Touche tropicale rappelant un léger pamplemousse et résineux? note aussi un côté écorce d’orange sanguine. Malt reste dans la lignée de cette série, pâle sur léger caramel.

Fin (7540) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Picked up from Bredog Online Shop. Had this in bottle at Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Saturday 23rd August 2014 This is an IPA but very much in the American mould. Hoppy but with a malty backbone that at times can threaten to steal the show. Slick in the mouth, maybe I am getting some pine resin, feels quite pokey, its a good beer. The colour is orangey gold, a slight haze with a white perhaps just off-white head. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

martin00sr (730) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Clear, light golden. Frothy, white head. Lemon, spruce aroma. Flavour is softer, more caramelly. Still nicely bitter, but the malt is more pronouncez in this one than the others from this series.

Bamsen78 (3234) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear lightish amber with airy off-white head. Clear atoma of hops with notes of fruit and touches of citrus. Bitter flavour of hops, quickly replaced by sweetish, fruity notes and touches of needles. Sweetish and bitter aftertaste. Not bad, well-balanced, enjoyable, but definitely the least interesting of all the four beers in the series.
