Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of citrus, lemongrass, tangerine, light smoke phenols, bread and light grain. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of citrus, grain and bread. Meh. Not dry and bitter enough. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Nice aroma but mediocre taste.

Hanoi (363) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Spectacular nose. Bursting with citrus, lemons, orange, lots of pineapple. Taste is cereal, leading to a wall of pineapple then peach, and a lightly resin finish. Taste is underwhelming compared to the nose. Mouthfeel is too full for the style. Everyone does an American IPA, this one has a great nose but that is not enough to stand out.

Lowenbrau (1890) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2013
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Nice fruity aromas, sweet ones. Pours murky light orange, not really appealing even keeping the sediment in the bottle, with some off-white head, vanishing, some lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is citrusy, some tropical fruits, peach, mango, with a thick malty body, robust, well balanced. Some bitter aftertaste. Really enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Re-rate Keg at Hanging Bat 19/11/13. Someone told me to try this on Keg as it’s much, much better. And they were right! Miles better than the bottle I had back in May. Paler in colour and bursting with tropical fruits, and a lovely lingering bitter finish. Excellent stuff. Bottle at home 25/5/13. Pretty boring to be honest. Pours amber, so darker than expected. Nose has hints of tropical fruits, but only hints. Doesn’t follow through on the taste - too malty. Basically Boring British Brown Beer (with a few more hops than normal BBBB) (A5/A3/T4/P3/O10=2.5)

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2013
Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Cph. Pours hazy orange with a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has resin, apricot, bergamot, citrus. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good crisp and light doughy malts, piney hops at first. Then apples, peach, pineapple, apricot. Lingering bitter finish. Nice and fat.
