Davros (2545) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2016
Pours gold with a large lasting head. Nose shows grassy hops and grainy malt. Little else. Some faint cardboard notes. Flavours include more of the same: cardboard, metallic notes, grassy and spicy hops.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. 2014 vintage BB05/02/16 Hazy pale gold body, holds a rather attractive, well-sized creamy white head throughout. Interesting nose to it - bread crust & dough, white pepper, zesty lemon rind, touch of grass (hop?), floral undertones, pear esters. Surprisingly thick creamy body, rather sweet upfront but dries out, touch of acidity in the works too. Once again, there’s some intrigue to the flavours going on here - dough, leafy spices, cloves & pepper, citrus rind with an accompanying bitter note, sour grapes, green wood, slight earthiness lingers on the finish, slightly astringent like chewing on a bit of wood. Not sure what to think about it; oddly drinkable, slight bit wild, rustic, but i’m alright with that.

SkillsFactory (369) - ITALY - JAN 17, 2016
Color pesca, impenetrabile, schiuma bianca fine e di ottima persistenza. Aroma molto leggero di coriandolo, leggero aneto, cracker, erbaceo, paglia, pompelmo. Al palato sempre erbacea, zuccherina, cracker e pompelmo, la coda è molto lunga caratterizzata da pompelmo ed erbaceo, accompagnata da un lievissimo tepore etilico. Retrolfatto di pompelmo, lieve erbaceo e zucchero. Corpo medio-leggero, ben carbonata, molto beverina.

cpetrone84 (1797) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Pour is golden in color, clear, and white head with good retention. Nose has a heavy malt and candied sugar aroma, notes of oxidation and stale caramel. Flavor follows suit, a bit oxidized and probably past its prime. Assertive sweet malt, older caramel, hints of sugar. Soft body, nicely carbonated, feel is still holding up.

lello4ever (404) - ITALY - DEC 29, 2015
Si presenta di un bel biondo velato con perlage sottile e buon cappello di schiuma bianca. Ottimo aroma floreale ed un po’ erbaceo, con note fruttate. Anche la. Bevibilita è super, con un ingresso amaro ma sempre ben equilibrato. Ancora note di agrumi e frutta. Carbonazione poco vivace.

Shark_Pants (534) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2015
Hazy golden amber with generous fluffy white head. Lots of lemon zest in the aroma, along with cream crackers. The lemon comes through in the taste as well, with sweetened grapefruit, a little grass and water crackers. Nice dry and bitter finish. Light bodied, drinkable. Really excellent summer ale.

Mycket jästfällning. Ljusbrun med kraftigt skum. Luktar lite halm, stall. Ganska god med viss efterbeska.

hawthorne00 (3168) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy gold with a huge white head. 4 Aroma of grapefruit juice, cracker dough, apricots, coriander seeds. Lots of grapefruit. 7+ Light bodied, highish carbonation. Not as dominated by grapefruit as suggested by the aroma - it’s prominent but sits just above apricots, crackers, white pepper, coriander. Just enough sweetness before the dry and fairly bitter finish to make it elegant rather than austere. Right up my street.
