themightyjag (336) - - JAN 6, 2016
330ml bottle from Eebria. Small bubbly white head, nice lacing. Hazy golden amber body. Good hoppy nose, grass, pine, light citrus. Flavour is all hops, grass, straw, great bitterness. Light carbonation, mouthfeel is a little thin as you’d expect from the low abv but it works. So much flavour and bitterness for the abv, really impressive. So drinkable.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 10, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Golden color with white head. Aroma is really hoppy with citrus fruits and green grass. Taste starts quite bitter up-front with absolutely no malt presence. Hoppy, green and fresh. Very dry, light body with crisp carbonation. For its low ABV, it’s quite tasty but really bitter and dry.

Lonick (1121) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle @home tasting General Election 2015 (rating backlog) Pours yellow. Nose is hoppy, citrus/grapefruit with some toffee right at the end. Taste is very much the same with some malty sweetness at the back end.

Mjp12 (1089) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Very tasty low alcohol beer, the aroma is as good as many decent IPAs , with loads of tropical and grassy hops, obviously a thin mouthfeel , but a lot tastier than most lowish abv beers

Towey1989 (1165) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Cask at The Buxton Brewery Tap House. A hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grape, some grapefruit, spritzy lemon, maybe mango, slight grain, subtle wood and grassy, floral hops. Taste of grape, some grapefruit, lemon, slight melon, subtle grain, a little peppery yeast and grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, peppery, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. This is surprisingly hoppy for a 2.8, strange array of flavours though. This is probably a beer I can have a session on, nice.

MrHangover (3671) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2015
Draft @ Uiltje bar. Pours clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is very strange, sweaty feet, cheese, wet dog. Flavour is very bitter, one dimensional, bready, grainy. Aftertaste is bitter, light carbonated and nothing special.

kermis (8452) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2015
Draft at Uiltje. Pours clear orange with an off white head. Aroma of fruity hops, cheesy old socks, light poo and a lightly weedy character. Nice hops, but some nasty stuff on the side. Flavour is light sweet and over moderate bitter. Light bodied with light carbonation.
