Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - DEC 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, pine and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.

Douberd (1697) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Bottle 500 ml, thanks to Lonick! Into a Guinness pint glass, ABV 4.1% Deep bright golden orange colour on the body, slightly off-white small and creamy head, with great retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Body is a bit hazy. Aroma is quite hoppy, with lots of citrus,mandarines, kumquat, nice floral notes. Taste follows, hoppy too but with no extreme bitterness, on the contrary subtle but present during the whole drinking experience, citrus fruits, mandarines, light grapefruit, refreshing kumquat again, fresh cut grass. Medium thin body, average carbonation, quite dry palate. Great beer, one to drink buckets of.

wimpyjoe (2950) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Cask @ Friends of Ham, Leeds. Golden with a very thin head. Has a hop malt character but there’s some fruits in the taste too. Tastes strong despite a low alcohol content.

gowdy (681) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Pint at Blackfriars in the Merchant City, Glasgow. Quite a deep golden colour. Not too much head.

thirstyrabbit (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle. Light golden body, medium head. Aroma has cookies and some floral hops. Smooth mouthfeel with tingly carbonation. Mildly citric taste with what feels like NZ hops. Juicy lemony finish with a tender dry hoppiness. Good.

harrisoni (12651) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Cask handpull at The Craft Clerkenwell. Clear gold lasting white head. Sone yeast some biscuit. Yes I like the digestive biscuit element. Nice enough. Could do with being a bit hoppier to balance the buscuit. Ok.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Dull amber with a sparkler head. Fruity, leafy hop aroma and taste, balanced w mellow pale malts. Refreshing.

Marduk (2009) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Malty, soapy, hops in aroma. Sweet, malty, grainy, slightly sour taste. Some herbal notes in aftertaste.

FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2014
500ml bottle (Toit’s, Tallinn)
Smells like old old dish cloths. Clear orange, small head. Tastes of dishcloth too. Finish messy too. Odd, brewed at too low a temperature. No life. Expected better from these guys.

TBone (11895) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottled 500ml (AbM)
Clear pale amber color, decent white head, lace. Earthy and tropical fruity hoppyness in the nose. Light bodied. Sweetish fruityness, citrus, hints of tea, dry finish. Quite weak palate. British golden ale with light new world twist.

hawthorne00 (2253) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2014
Growler. Gold with a white head. Aroma of gooseberries, grapefruit, mandarins, grass. Light bodied. Quite tightly wound citrus and tropical flavours - not much sweetness, or at least the bitterness and dry finish kick in early.
