chinchill (2769) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2014
.5L bottle, BB dated Nov. 2014 and USDA certified organic, served in a Belgian snifter. Label suggests and English Pale Ale. Pours hazy, light honey in color, with a thin but partly durable bone-colored head. Both the aroma and flavor are unusual. The slightly pungent aroma has clear and quite distinct contributions from sweet malts with light grains as well as herbal/fruity hops. In tasting, the hops are stronger and more earthy than suggested by the nose. They build quickly to a moderately strong level, then magically diminish, soon leaving a rather mildly bitter and hoppy aftertaste with some underlying bisquit. Feel: medium-thin body; medium carbonation

Pours amber with a white head. Smells breaddy and earthy. Tastes of some breaddy hints, floral, grassy with some slight earthiness on the finish.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Not a lot of aroma, bits of grapefruit, toffee. Not a lot in the taste either. Dry, bitter finish. Interesting, but not sufficiently interesting for a second go-round,

brnandersen (2405) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2013
50 cl. bottle poured in to a snifter. Hazy dark amber-golden colour with a frothy, off-white head. Fruity aroma with grapefruits, citrus, grasses, spices and caramel malts. Taste is medium bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes rather dry and bitter with grapefruits and pines. Nice, hop-driven ale.

wxman (1535) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pours a hazy gold with a big, long lasting white head. Aroma is peat and pine. Taste is smooth sweet pale malt, bread dough and hop spiciness that is not over done. Well balanced; good stuff.

prusten (1) - HONG KONG - DEC 2, 2013 does not count
Satisfying, hoppy ale with Atlantic and New Zealand hops, and a flavour coming close to the best IPAs.
