Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2014
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper color. Aromas of fruity and piney hops. Rich bitter, piney and grainy taste with toasted nuts and petrol. Very good hoppy ale. Rich taste, hard to believe this is only 4.2 %.

Duvelfan (139) - Getxo (Basque Country), - JAN 20, 2014
Botella de 50 cl. Color dorado, ligeramente turbio. Abundante y duradera espuma. Carbónico el justo. Aromas florales y frescos. En boca, sabores frutales, vainilla....y el retrogusto más amargo de lo que se podría imaginar. Y todo esto con solo 4,2% de alcohol. Para disfrutar

floydian1 (1155) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 18, 2014
500ml bottle from DM’s with expiry 18/5/14. Looks great with a bright golden body, decent creamy white head and lace rings on the glass. Aroma has butterscotch, biscuity malts and citrus fruity hops (oranges and grapefruits mainly) with good balance on the tongue and a decent spruced hop finish. Nice clean refreshing palate with oily texture and medium body with lowish carbonation. Very enjoyable on a hot Summer’s day.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. (BB 01.29.2014) Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mild citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is bready and citrus. In Koln it might pass as a Kolsch. Finishes mildly flavored.

My first beer from this brewery, from Dan’s Adelaide. Golden colour, mild malt driven aroma with some fresh hop character. Clean palate with a refreshing dry finish.

Cantabrian (927) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 6, 2013
Very sweet aroma of Chardonnay, although not too strong. And I’m neither too excited about the blonde looks here, although her head looks respectable. Malty with a very bitter bite. Not as resinous as it could be. Just bitter, piney and grassy. Nice, but not calling for another.

TBone (13829) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle @Õllesummeri, Tallinn
Clear copper color, good off-white head. Leafy, resiny aroma. Light to medium bodied. Resiny, some caramel. Nice for this ABV. Good malt profile.
Earlier Rating: 8/7/2009 Total Score: 2.6
Cask@GBBF. (staff cask?) Golden color, small white head. Grassy, cut wood aroma. Woody, pear fruity flavor, which is also harsh. Dry aftertaste. Kind of unbalanced.
