kappldav123 (5030) - GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Beer in the glass orange-golden, small head. Malty-sourish aroma. Starts moldy-malty, light sourish. Finish more dry, sourish-fruity with lemon notes. Okay.

Brewtique (10) - Macclesfield, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Brewtique, Macclesfield. This is a great hoppy little session ale. At 2.8% it’s practically water! But it certainly doesn’t taste like it! A: Appearance of this beer when poured is great. Crystal clear, with a nice staying head. S: The nose off this beer is great, loads of hops. However, it does start to dwindle quickly. T: This is lovely. Light, refreshing. Barely any body, but that was expected for a beer so small. It adds to the fact it’s so damn drinkable!

ciaranc (914) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 12, 2014
330 ml bottle from drinkstore. Clear pale gold with an impressive lasting foamy white head. Nose is primarily dry, spicy hops, with a little banana fruitiness in the background. Flavour is quite dry and bitter, mellowing toward the finish. Light body, very fizzy, with a short finish. Good sessioner this.

Cask @ Magpie brentford: if I’m drinking a "session" beer, I do @ least like to get some kinda buzz and mellow grove - I had one pint of this and while it had a pleasantly floral hop flavour, it would take 4ever. I can’t help but feel it’s thinner for lack of booze in contrast to say something even 3.5@% . My palate is prejudice and there you go.

Japalo (1218) - DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Cask@ buxton tap house. Orange amber haze. Small head and carb. Floral. Bitterness rules even though its quite light. Better than most low alcohol brews.

zacgillbanks (2361) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy straw coloured with sharp citrus, malty and grassy flavours a full body for its low ABV and a light pine finish. Excellent!

Beese (1890) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 9 July. Poured a hazy golden, with a thin white head and good lacing. Aroma of mango, crystal malt and a waft of pork scratchings. Melon and straw in the flavour, mixed with something that tasted somewhat like boiled potatoes. Finish was grassy hop, satsuma and light saltiness.
