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 (811) - 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 (3495) - 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 (7733) - 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.

freretoc (1216) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 9, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie. Couleur blonde, mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence. Aucun nez. En bouche petite attaque sur le pamplemousse qui tombe tout de suite.

Renobob (1285) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 8, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bel arôme de houblon, d'ananas et d'abricot. Palais bien amer, peu corpulent forcément. Finale aqueuse inhérente au style de la bière.

330 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Kaapse Brouwers. Bought pretty much exclusively because of the name: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099871/ Bottled 11/02/2015. Sparkling hazy golden, small white head, slowly fizzing away. Nose is big mango, exotic, litchi, white grape hops with some yeast, lovely. Taste is dry mellow litchi & white grape hops, citrus, light grass, flowers, mellow faint yeast, dry grass hops,… Dry & amazingly clean,… So light, clean & refreshing,… Amazing mellow, low ABV beer with lots of fruity hops, utterly clean,… I don’t understand the scores, if not for the price, I would drink this forever. I honestly think that this is an amazing example of brewing. Oddly easily my favorite Buxton beer so far. My rating is so much higher than everyone’s else’s maybe I just don’t get something here.

Very drinkable. Light snappy citrus and a touch of wood. Light bitter finish. Everything a bitter should be. Tap at Churchkey thanks to Travlr.

Draft. Clear bright golden color. Aroma of light fruity citrus. Taste is subtle white pepper and straw. Tasty and easy drinking.
