500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Lovely English hop aroma, really citrussy like a very fresh EKG or Fuggles, at flame-out ot later. Not lacking in pleasant sweet malts though, a good balance. Lovely in the mouth, gentle bitterness, pleasant carbonation, pleasantly full biscuity malty sweetness, smooth, and succulent. Lovely ESB taste, perfect balance, lacking nothing. So easy to drink, and really makes you want another. In some ways there’s a bit of Fullers 1845 in it, but this is hoppier. I think I might have a few more of these, and see whether I can persuade myself to bump up one of the scores, as 3.7 seems a bit of an underrate, this is an *excellent* strong bitter.

A great IPA. Gorgeous hoppy and grapefruit aromas. Pours golden and bubbly with a lasting white head. Tastes pretty bitter but with a touch of sweetness that balances perfectly. A nice smooth palate a light bodied beer. Very drinkable!

From 0.5l bottle. Poured a cloudy amber with two finger head. Mild fruity aroma. A slight sharpness to the fruitiness on the taste. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (7443) - Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a soft white head. Smell is diacetyl, herbs, pine, grass. Flavor is interesting. It starts with a slight smokey scotch flavor, it then melds into a mineraly, dry, piney flavor. A medium bitterness and subtle smokiness lingers on the palate. Interesting flavor combo, the bitterness makes htis beer worth it. Also its organic.

thirstyrabbit (1105) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Nice design. Deep golden body with a beautiful rocky head. Aroma has piney hops. Nice and rich mouthfeel with big bitterness (approaching IPA territoty). Finish is also quite malty and rich with grapefruity hops. Nice but it’s more like an IPA, really.

KeefOz (924) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2013
BB 27.04.2014. Poured a cloudy/hazy golden honey amber colour with a thin white bubbly head that laced poorly. Very low carbonation as seen by a few fine bubbles forming poorly defined trails. Aroma of malt with a hint of citrus/lemon. Taste has plenty of bitterness from start to finish. Light body. Smooth mouthfeel but a lot of bitterness. Not that nice of a beer.

seritomi (297) - HUNGARY - SEP 2, 2013
Szép sárga de nem teljesen tiszta. Habja világossárga teljesen soha nem tűnik el. Illata fás, furmintos, citrusos és száraz. Mindenből egy kicsi nem erőlködik nem támad le. Meglepően testes az alkohol tartalmához képest és erősen komlós. Gyantás kesernyésség. Szinte ragad olyan malátás de nem gej. Basszus ez egy nagyon jó sör pedig már kóstoltam tőlük és az nem volt olyan nagy szám.

Clean amber color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, pine , toffee, hops and some floral notes. Heavy bitter taste of piny hops, malt, caramel and orange. Nice hoppy beer.

suurjuust (1068) - ESTONIA - AUG 18, 2013
Clear gold, white head, medium white head. Nose has a fair amount of malts, some caramel/toffee hints, (grape)fruity tones. Taste is bready malts, some sweet hints, finish is pretty bitter and hayish-grapefruity-hoppy. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body, oily palate, smooth carbonation.
