Exciting new beer for us, featuring Summit hops from the USA. Nice high alpha acid again, should be a fruity prospect

Cunningham (6060) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2015
Hazy amber color with a tan head. Very hoppy, malty and bready nose. Light sweet and an ok bitterness. Medium body. Unfortunately very flat. Citric hoppy, bready and fruity flavor. Flat carbonation destroyed this one.
[On tap at Peter Kavanagh’s in Liverpool, England

Cask at the Wharf. A clear deep golden beer with some white bubbles on top. The aroma is on the fruity side, weak but pleasant. Pine cones, resins and a touch of malts. It’s dry and soft on the palate, quite bitter, with pine cones, grapefruit and some resins. Low on malts. Lasting mostly hoppy finish. Easy drinkable but rather dull. 150301

NosirIwont (2187) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
Cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg. Pours golden with a small, diminishing white head. Decent lacing. Sweet, floral hop aroma, a bit spicy. Flavour is sweet with spicy hops, a hint of grain, and faint hint of plastic. Dry, bitter hop finish. Overall good; a decent, well-made beer without a lot of fuss. 28.02.15.

Desverger (5077) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2015
Cask@Charlies Bar, CPH - golden pour with healthy white head. Aroma and taste is fruity and grassy hoppy, with some lovely orange and lemony accents, slightly floral, clean and fresh on the palate, in such great condition, so easy drinking, could drink loads of this. Lovely stuff!

JohnRMurdoch (3984) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Cask @ The State bar. Dark golden amber, good head. Resin grain aroma. Biscuit grain f& mid lemon flavour. A bit bland and watery with slightly bitter aftertaste. Had better from Crouch Vale. I was really looking forward to this one but was disappointed.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2013
Pale Amber, small white head. Very sweet malty nose. Oily crisp mouthfeel. Clear cut malt, sweet light toffee, firm but fair hop. Not exactly a total hop pedestal.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Cask on my English stag, Nottingham BF, 15/10/11. Me and my Dad returned to this one many times over the day. Pale and drenched with condition. That stewed, celery and Darjeeling-accented thing- very English despite the florid US hoppage. Very sessionable little effort.

Ungstrup (31474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is very flowery combined with notes of hops - like a meadow in summertime. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops combined with medium notes of spices and flowers, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.
