DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle from Dobbies. Buttered dishcloth, shortbread aroma outshone by Oakham Citra. Pale with a scant white foam. Lean pine and butteriness; lurking licked envelope and papery evergreen notes. Scratchy finish; husk, bitter linger. Some soda emptiness, vanilla, grass and English woods. Lacks much of the character of the cask version.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2011
Fresh and crisp beer with quite a lot of carbonation. The hobs are dominating the taste without gettin too flowery or strong. The aftertaste withers quickly away.

Metalchopz (2515) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Was bought in Scotland for me. Pours a mildly-hazy golden-amber colour with a creamy-soapy slightly off-white head that has good retention and beautiful lacing. Big hoppy nose with notes of grass, citrus (mostly orange but some lemon) and even a little honey. I even smell a some toasted bread in there. Quite a wonderful nose overall. Crisp mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Good grainy malt taste with the hop showing up, but not too bitter, and given this brew a swell dry finish. Flavours are less punchy than its aromas, but that is just fine, making this one a very well-balanced session ale.

gunnar (6063) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle from Aakjærs, Esbjerg. Pours deep golden with a big white head. Citrus flowery aroma, caramel. Taste is medium sweet caramel, fruity and nice citrusy hops towards the end, reminds me of a very weak IPA. Very good beer
