Braastad (458) - - AUG 17, 2013
Pale golden, just slightly hazy. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Some sweeet malt in the flavor to balance the fruity hops.

mambossa (281) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Can. Rich hearty gold, pristinely clear. Sloppy nice lacing. Nose of pale malt, floral, bit of lemon. Full-flavored dry malt with quite present floral cascade notes and a delicate citrus. It’s not much, but it tastes like a well-flavored macro, way less sweet and artificial. The more I drink this, the more I can agree with it. I can get down with this. F*ck the haters.

Drake (11576) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2016
12 ounce can from Wine Warehouse. Hazy amber, thin off-white head, decent retention. Aroma of toasted malts and a bit of citrus. The taste is grapefruit and toasted malt. A bit of caramel. Thin bodied.

johndoughty (4939) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
Can. Surprised I haven’t tried this before. Bronze with a small head. Quite dry and slightly malty. Some hops are also present. Smooth and far better than I expected.

berkshirejohn (5947) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
12oz can from Sainsbury’s, Bracknell. A pale amber pour with lively carbonation and a tight white head; peachy aroma; grainy taste, with lots of zing in the mouth and some weak fruit; then the lightest waft of hops before a dry biscuity finish.

mice (781) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Miltei kirkas rusehtavan oranssi olut on melko kevyesti maltainen, ja vain aavistuksen humaloidun katkera. Keskitasoinen.

tfontana (663) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Can taster pour at Craft Beer Race New Haven. Appearance is dark yellow with no sparkle, tiny white ring of head with light lacing. Aroma is pretty weak biscuit/cracker. Taste is same as aroma with some resin bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with average texture, average carbonation, finish like taste. Overall, pretty boring.

mR_fr0g (8870) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2016
Can at picked up from Sainsbury’s. A very clear golden orange coloured pour with a lasting fine white head. Aroma is sweet bready malts, raw grains, wort, light grassy hop with hints of berry fruits. Flavour is composed of light bready malts, mineral, chalky, light grass. Pretty watery and lacking in flavour. Palate is thin, mineral, highish carbonation, drying finish. meh.

rumproasts (4862) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2016
can. Golden with one finger head. Light body, very mild. A touch of citrus hops with very low bitterness. I’d imagine this would appeal well to macro beer fans, seems pretty accessable. Doesn’t do much for me, but it wasn’t bad.
