ninecats (339) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
33 cl bottle, bought at a random shop in Gdynia, Poland. Clear golden, fairly big white head dissipating quite fast, leaving minor lacings. Faint aroma of dough, citrus, grass, cleansing agent. Taste is fairly stuffy and weak, citrus, orange, bread, grassy finish. Medium body with medium carbo. A bit pale, and no real direction or balance.

Very fruity ale. Yeasty and hoppy flavor contributes to a general acidity in taste. Do not drink too cold.

ThirstyBird (2258) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with an off-white head. The smell is grain, bread, honey. The taste is honey, grain, quite sweet ending fruity and a bit crisp. Light+ and oily with fine carbonation structure creating a rather silky smooth brew. Too sweet overall though the mouthfeel was nice.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2015
A golden yellow glass with a persistent hail of carbonation and a murky whitish head that sat as an ugly gibbous crescent on top of the beer. The aroma is vaguely musty, somewhat citric with lemon and tangerine and vaguely tasty as well. There’s a bit going on with some bitterness but mostly astringent character. I liked it more than my preamble supposes, but it is what it is.

Botella 75. Dorada poca espuma y algo turbia. Aroma ligeramente herbal con toque de fermento. Cuerpo medio, bastante carbonatada. En boca es muy muy agradable, con un estupendo sabor lupulado, Bastante bebible y agradable.

France trip can. Pale yellow with small white head - dissipates to thin line. Medium carbonation. Decent aroma, no ting on tongue or mouth. Tastes thin with malty aftertaste.

Dorée plutôt équilibrée, une bouche agréable, mais caractère retenu. Trouvable notamment chez Léon de Bruxelles en France.

UXO (916) - CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
Pours clear pale gold with a fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, light flowery and grassy hops. (6/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter, slight tart. (5/10) Medium bodied, lively to moderate carbonation, mild bitter and slightly boozy finish. (3/5) Another pretty sweet Bière de Garde. Really not a lot of character beyond the caramel malt - the hops are very far in the background, and don’t play a lot of a role here. On the up side, the higher ABV also doesn’t play much of a role. Ultimately, not very interesting. (10/20)
