erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 4, 2013
Golden body, clear. Little aroma, light malty, cereal and clean yeast. Light bitter, simple accessible taste, very short aftertaste. Well enough made but too boring for me. As expected. (75cl bottle from Auchan)

750 ml bottle. From France. Courtesy of Brandman. Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sweet almondy malty aroma. Flavour is also quite sweet with almond, and malt. Rather unpleasant. No good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (4995) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.

Draft @ Novare Res. Pale yellow color with thick full head, good retention in the Tulip. Light malty nose. Flavor is mild yeast providing a light fruit. I also get a light grain. Lighter in body with a short finish. Very plain and simple. Drinkable but I wasn’t craving another glass.
