Palme (4167) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2016
On tap @ Henrik. This is a mild cloudy looking orange colored one with a nice big really lacing almost a little foamy off-white head. Smells grassy this. Dry mineralish, some milder types of fruity. Hard to tear appart but it smells quite nice actually. It’s higher on the carbonation and somewhat watery on the texture. More grassy bite in the taste. It has a big punchy bitterness all the way this. Also on the dryer side. Hints if fruits in the watery tail. Yeah, for the ABV and all that it’s actually quite a nice little hoppy session inspired apa this. 13.11.2015

berkshirejohn (6061) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A straw coloured pour with a white head and lively carbonation; fresh piney citrus aroma; dry and tart in the mouth with a tropical fruit taste, but a rather thin body; then some resinous hops leading to dry, almost chalky finish. A light summery and refreshingly hoppy beer.

androman (1835) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
33cl bottle at home from Buxton taproom. Nose is citric lagerish malty. Body is opalescent orange, head is medium, white, fizzy, average lasting, fair lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tonic water. Light sweet, medium bitter. Finish is long lasting quite heavy bitter, hint of salt. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Easy, refreshing, simple, pure hoppy bitter beer, great on hot summer days, a hint of more sweetness would be nice though.

Golden amber color, creamy white head. Peach nose, passion fruit, melon, pineapple, caramel, fruity and fresh. Grapefruit taste, peach, crisp, hint of caramel and light malty notes, moderate bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation. Really impressing considering the low ABV.
