BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in The Vaults, Shrewsbury on 23rd Aug 2014. This is proof you do not need buckets of alcohol to make a tasty beer. Poured a good golden colour, clear and almost bright: the head off-white. The nose was more malts than hops with a light sweetness that led you into the mild citrusy taste that hid the malts sweetness picked up in the aroma. Nice blend, especially for a 3.3%ABV brew.

ElectroMod (119) - - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle gifted from the brewer at Liverpool Craft Beer Expo. Pours a clear straw colour with a thin but fluffy consistent white head. Aroma is citrussy hops with a slight metallic twinge. Taste is dry and bitter, with grassy pine hops and slight lemon zest. A lot of taste for such a low ABV beer; impressive!

Lightly hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and pretty crisp. Minerals. Very light malt. Nice bitter marmalade and citric peel hops contrast nicely with the sharp minerally crispness. Finishes crisp with a touch of sweet malt coming in. Peel bitter linger.

Idiosynkrasie (3752) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity, citrusy hoppy aroma has an explicit pineapple note, a spicy touch of malt and yeast origin. Taste is bitter hoppy, slightly chalky and mineral, cardboard, Aspirin, backgroundish pineapple remains only in nearly homoeopathic rarefaction; lasting bitter finish. Very aromatic for its 3.3% abv, sadly the really nice pineapple note doesn’t survive in desirable intensity.

martjoobolut (669) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Aroma is rather weak fruits and malt. Flavor is hoppy, pine bitter, fruits, and malt. Finish is nice pine bitter. Overall: as far as below 3.5% brews go, this is one of the best I have tried.

suurjuust (1032) - ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2014
Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Hazy golden beer, soapy off-white head. Nose is pretty weak, but what I got was some fairly nice fruity hops and malt notes. Flavor is malts, fruity-citric hops. Slightly herbal hoppy notes in the finish. Simple, but not bad at all for the ABV.

Brewtique (9) - Macclesfield, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014 does not count
Bottle from Brewtique. Pours light golden with slight haze. Good carbonation giving a loose head which retains and laces well. Fruity if slightly metallic aroma. Taste is very hop driven bitterness, clean and sharp with slight metallic tang. Long, long, long bitter aftertaste. Dry finish. Not a thirst quencher but nice and refreshing.
