Wheaty body. Sour. Watery palte. Don’t like this. Some corn, some poop. Alas this wasn’t a proper pour, we got part of the froth from the bottom of the keykeg. Anna had a sip earlier and said that there was a decent hoppy zing.

jamestulloch (1910) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from Great Grog. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of lemon, grass, peach and grapefruit. Flavour of watery grain, lemon and tonic water. Thin body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Tastes a bit diluted.

Douberd (3051) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2015
(Buxton Jacob’s Ladder) Bottle 330 ml into a shaker, ABV 2.7% Golden yellow colour on the body, small and thin white head with okay retention, leaving minimal lacing behind. Aroma is nicely hoppy, citrus, some grapefruit, hiding efficiently the malty aromas. Nice taste too, plenty of hops, again citrus and grapefruit, with some grass on the finsih, light straw and for a moment malts appear, dirty as in a pale lager, but not long enough to ruin the whole experience. Long bitter aftertaste. Medium thin body, quite carbonated. For a 2.7% beer this is wonderful.

niquillis (1593) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
On cask at Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Pours pale gold with white head. Hops smacks for senses, very thin on the palate expectedly but a cracking hop punch on your taste buds. Cracking beer for it’s ABV.

martjoobolut (1351) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2015
0,33L bottle (from Drink Shop?). Pours dark orange with off-white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is very hoppy, grass, diesel, citrus, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grass, citrus, diesel, malt. Pouring yeast in gives it more citric-acidic flavor. Finish is intense grassy bitter. Overall: ok considering ABV.

TedE (397) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2015
Pint at the Brewery Tap. Good hoppy nose. Cloudy amber beer with small head. Great mouthfeel, beautiful floral hop finish. Hard to believe this is only 2.7%. Easily the best low alcohol beer I have ever tasted.

vidmidia (68) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - APR 1, 2015
Amarela clara. Espuma abundante e duradoura. Aroma cítrico e lupulado. Apesar de ser uma cerveja de teor alcoólico baixo, é surpreendentemente amarga. Notas cítricas fortes de limão e grapefruit. Retrogosto amargo com final cítrico.

suurjuust (1617) - ESTONIA - APR 1, 2015
Tap @TCBW2015. Thin and grainy beer with a slightly fruity character to it. Watery finish with more citric notes and hops. Thin, but that’s to be expected from this ABV.
