maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle pour at Great Japan Beer Festival Osaka (7/13/2013). Fruity and malty (British-style) nose. Hazy gold straw color. Big hits of whiskey and tobacco. Smacky-lip sipping. Doesn’t really smooth out. Some mild peppery harshness, and some rye-like notes. Interesting stuff.

fidelis83 (1907) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Hazy, pale gold pour with a 2 finger, frothy, white head that has good retention and leaves decent lacing. Tree fruit, berries, bitter citrus and biscuit in the aroma. Taste starts out with lots of mineral, cereal malts, light toffee, floral (thistle flower comes to mind), herbal, and bitter citrus hops with a nice, light honey-like sweetness riding out the citrus and mineral finish. Medium body, oily, to creamy feel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good overall, nicely hoppy, while still retaining a distinctly Englishy profile.

Lowenbrau (1878) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2013
500 ml bottle. Malty, some herbal and caramel aromas. Pours dark gold, clear, with vanishing white head. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is sweet, herbal. some caramel. Correct, but nothing remarkable.

brnandersen (1826) - 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.
