freretoc (1127) - 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 (1177) - 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.

77ships (5402) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2015
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.

solidfunk (5254) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2015
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.

Tap (TCBW15)
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 (2110) - 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 (3185) - 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 (1778) - 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 (1561) - 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.
