olio (6512) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear mahogany color with a large white head. Surprisingly strong resinous hops on the nose, caramel-y malts and some pine. Nice crisp palate, grapefruit flavor with some gooseberries and pale malts. The grapefruits water up your mouth leaving you to crave for more. The balance is simply excellent, I wasn’t expecting this to be quite this good. Very nice.

Kauge (349) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Had a bottle at Koht. A beautiful, well-rounded, fresh, fruity, citrusy and resinous brew with decent malt backbone. Quite a thirst quencher despite the above average body and thickness. Should get some more.

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2014
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) - "Inglismaa on pasa" tasting
Lovely rich gold, huge tight spongy head. Lovely raw citrussy fruity hop aroma, and lovely toffee aspects too. Full in the mouth, a nice zing from both the carbonation and the tingly hops. Great balance, such clear fresh expressive hops, but no aggression in them at all. "Golden ale"’s normally an insult for me, that term is demeaning for a beer as great as this. Such high drinkability. More please!

Ragnampiza (523) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 14, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra+ (bottled on 23-05-2014). Dark golden yellow, quite clear, with a nice, creamy, fluffy and persistent white head. Excellent nose, very fruity and pungent despite a few months. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruits notes, slightly soapy, a hint of lemon peel, pine needles and mint bubblegum. Pretty bitter and resinous upfront, slightly astringent, solid but subtle bready malts backbone. Solid dryness. Thirst quenching and relatively refreshing, I just wouldn’t call it easy to drink just for the big big bitterness punch, which is totally fine for me. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Lovely.
