a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Gold, thin frothy head; earthy aroma; grainy malt flavour at first, leading to a hoppy, dry finish; slight sulphuric tinge permeates throughout (this example was possibly slight past its best); easy drinking, but nothing special.

zimbo (742) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Light clear golden colour with light fluffy white head. Lively nosecwith some trace of hops. Starts firm but as time moves on it loses structure. Tasty to a degree but lacks concentration and substance as it once did.

strangehorse (64) - - APR 10, 2015
Several hand-pumped pints whilst in Edinburgh. The perfect colour for an IPA, but a touch on the light side in depth. A great session ale.

Cunningham (5345) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 7, 2015
Nice deep golden color with a thick creamy off white head. Fruity, mild citric and some toffee in the aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Soft carbonation. Toffee, fruity and mild citric flavor. Ok pleasant easy drinkable handpull ale.
[Handpull at Waldorf in Manchester, England]

nihtila (1484) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2015
20.2.2015. Looks like basic lager, nose is quite light with some bitterness and cereal. Flavour has similar malty feeling with mild fruity bitter finish. Ok in cask, not in bottle.

RickFifty (630) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
Cask. Golden to amber color, thick white head. Apple nose, light malty, hints of citrus and unripe fruit. Apple taste, sour notes, very light hoppy. Light body, creamy texture, flat carbonation.

redders1974 (229) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Will go out of my way for a decent pint of deuchars nice session pint plenty of citrus (orange?) And a lively creamy pint goes down a treat.

jjsint (1260) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Cask at the Half Moon, Bishops Stortford. Golden brown with a small white head and big ass lacing. Aroma of digestive biscuits, weak iced tea, hint if orange peel. Taste is sweet, light and refreshing. Very well balanced with the occasional hint of sour/bitter. Inconsequential, bordering on milquetoast, mouthfeel, but itís fitting for this beer. Didnít this used to be better, or have my expectations grown?

Renobob (1141) - BesanÁon, FRANCE - JAN 5, 2015
IPA à l'ancienne. Légère, sans bulle, amertume finale. Ca change beaucoup des IPA modernes. Correcte.
