Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
12 fl.oz., BB Jun2014, Bottle at ShakeShack, Grand Central Station.
Ale Starts malty, fresh. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is Bitter-typical, a bit roasted, malty-dry with nice hints of bittering hops. The aftertaste is long, highly drinkable, malty-dry and nicely roasted-bitter.
Nice session Bitter, but could be a bit deeper in aroma. --> 10/12/10/10

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Plastic pint, Shake Shack on Columbus, UWS, 22/02/14- barely room to pivot my elbow gob-wards. Orange slicked with white. Pisswatter loosely in the English style; aroma of grain and vague aniseed; yeast and orange. That (absence of) flavour too with dried grass and bread hints; drowning sorrows, good fresh cracker afters; a hint of liver (?!). 0 fucking 5. Beige. Twigs. Bollocks.

Draft at Shake Shack on 18th in Washington DC. Poured a pretty clear copper color with very light citrus and malt notes. Flavor was biscuit malts, some light hops. Mostly inoffensive.

Draft. An interesting floral hop aroma. Kind of earthy. Not much else to the nose. Pours a very clear golden color. Minimal head. Good lacing. Taste is initially very floral with a light peppery nite in the finish. Hardly any toasty character or caramel to the malt. Overall refreshing but not great

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2013
On tap @ Shake Shakespeare. A light cloudy deep golden one with a small islandy off-white lager head. Smells nice, but I just want to drink! Itís so damn hot outside today and Iím sooo thirsty! Tastes alright. Not to far off a regular pilsner really, except it has a nice body and mouthfeel. Almost a bit thick in the mouth. Slightly fruity in the finish also and it feels balanced with a gentle bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad at all, but I think even the saddest old pale lager would be sufficient for me right about now. 24.06.2013

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Grassy hops on the nose. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Very balanced honey malts with grassy hops and an earthy bitterness with hints of lemon and finishes very dry. Excellent session beer very drinkable. And great with my burger!

From the tap in a plastic cup. Clear amber color with a small white head. Earthy hops aroma, mellow malt and soft orange zest. Biscuity malt flavor, lightly moldy earthy notes, medium bitterness. Light-med body, not very interesting and short aftertaste. So so.
