androman (1558) - 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.

SirLimpsalot (3502) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2016
@ Hatten 16-4-6: en lite märklig öl med tydliga toner av kola och lite brunsocker. Rätt torr munnkänsla med trevlig humle. Rätt ok för en 2.7

MarkoNm (2190) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 5, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a medium white head. Smelly grainy aroma initially, a bit unpleasant. Little fruitiness in the back. Moderately bitter with a tad soury feel in the finish. Very dry finish. Not a bad one for a 2.7%, only the smell can be a bit offputting at first. Decent taste.
