Belgo (154) - Køge, - OCT 21, 2010
Cask at The Harp, Covent Garden. Nice golden with an off white head, that, true to it being cask, disappears quickly. For a British beer this has a very distinctive hoppy aroma: loads of classic British hops makes one feel as if taking a stroll in a hop garden in Southern England. On the palate the beer is lively (impeccably handled by the staff at The Harp), bursting with hops and a biscuity malty background. Super beer and one, that I’d love to have as my session beer for a night at the pub.

Ragnampiza (333) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 25, 2014
500 ml from handpump at Birra+. Rich pale gold, quite clear, with a big, frothy and bubbly white head. Grassy, hoppy and herbal nose, some light cereals and white bread presence. Incredibly smooth and refreshing, so easy to drink. Perfect level of bitterness (quite low), persitent hoppy and fruity taste. Mild malty backbone. Soft carbonation, light body, creamy texture. Superb session beer.

wihlan (203) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Ljus färg och något grumlig med vit skumkrona. Söt men den övertas av en härlig beska, väl balanserad.

VictorStr (1202) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
En av det bättre lågalkohol ölen jag druckit. Fruktig kanske ananas i aromen. Riktigt len och balanserad i smak och kropp.

In short: a fresh herbal ale.
Pours clear golden with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Malty, yeasty, herbal aromas. Light body, average carbonation, slightly crispy texture. Taste is herbal, mild bitter, some dry. Smooth and enjoybale.

Keg at Oliver Twist. Nice drinkable brew with a light solid malt base and a balanced fresh hoppyness.

Nocturne (744) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Cask at JDW. Light amber shade with a white head. Not as hoppy as I expected but does have some nice tangerine and passion fruit characteristics. Smooth caramel underpinning. Refreshing drop but doesn’t stand out as much compared to the other Dark Stars I’ve tried.
