chimpgibbon (365) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius - thanks James. Excellent bitter pale ale here - really refreshing, but without the sometimes cloying hop o/d aftertaste I associate with the usual modern hop Olympics efforts.. Very light on the malts, subtle hints of the tropics, orchards, merest glimpse of the vegetal funk. Uber drinkable uber fresh. Top effort.

Cunningham (5082) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
Lovely inviting cloudy dense golden color, with a fine white head that leaves a fine lacing. Perfect rich citric hoppy aroma. WoW. Medium (-) body. Moderate sweet with a lovely fresh bitterness. A bit dry ending and a fine carbonation. Rich dominating citric hoppy and mild fruity. Probably one of the best 3.5% beer I have ever consumed. Will not be the last. Summer her we come.
[Bottle from Maximat Nordby at Svinesund, Sweden (Norwegian border)]

ninecats (217) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle from ICA Maxi, Torp, Uddevalla. Shady golden, three finger cloudy head leaving minor lacings. Floral fruity aroma, grass, pineapple, malt. Taste starts medium bitter with bitter hops, grass, some malt hints. Finishes dry and very bitter in an almost uncontrollable way. Light body, medium carbo. Good, not enough body to carry out the bitterness though.

- Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2015
500ml bottle from Cornelius. Pours hazy amber, some floaters, thin white head. Aromas are pine, yeast, grapefruit. Taste is helluva bitter. Ouch almost. Needs a malt backbone to soften the bite, Impressive for 3.5%, but not well balanced.

omhper (20328) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2015
Bottled, from Coop, Tyresö. Cloudy golden, mid sized head. Floral nose with citrus and minerals. Dry with light body and crisp mouthfeel. Elderflowers, citrus and lots of resin that lingers in a brutally bitter finish. Promising, but too aggressive bitterness.
