Metalchopz (2448) - 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 (5761) - 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

TBone (13118) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Bottled (BZ, BB 06/2011)
Pale golden color, steady white head, some lace. Typical British citrusy-bready-yeasty, resiny nose. Decent body for 4.3% beer, although not really malty. Crisp, refreshing. Citrus, resin, pale malts, long lingering lemony bitterness. Standard middle of the road golden ale.

Lunkie (1484) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2010
Stale malt ashtray aroma with a good dash of chemicals for good measure. Clear maber colour very poor head and no lacing. Bitter malt hop flavour with sett fruit aftertaste. Very surprising. Flat palate.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 6, 2010
Golden body with small white head. A bit thin and fizzy, somewhat like champagne. Aroma of hops and fruit. Tasted bitter with notes of citrus, citrus and nuts. A bit sweet in places. Finished bitter with a bit of a kick that defied its strength. I liked this one. It was a bit thin but tasty and well-balanced. One I will get again.
