UXO (166) - CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw yellow with one finger of dense white head, excellent retention and no lacing. Nose is muted, citrus and grassy hops, slight malt. Taste is bitter grapefruit, slightly sour, faint malt. Light body, thin and slick, dry bitter finish. Interesting. The grapefruit similarities in both the appearance and the flavour make this almost like a radler. Minimal to non-existent sweetness and a dry finish make this pretty drinkable. I’m not sure I’d call it "extra hoppy ale", though, since the hops are fairly muted in the nose, albeit somewhat more present in the flavour.

330ml brown bottle. Lemon yellow coloured and cloudy in the glass. Decent looking creamy bright white cap with spotty lacing. Nose has grassy hops and bready malt, bit of fruit/citrus. Taste has grain, bread, yeast, minerals, grass. Yeasty finish with bready notes, big grassy bitterness. Enjoying the lighter abv this beer has and the nice hoppiness.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Draught @ La Porte Noire, Brussels. Pours cloudy straw with small white head. Clear aroma of malt amd grain, with notes of hops and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with subtle citric and malty notes and touches of yeast. Bitter aftertaste. Okay.

Beese (1625) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog, London. Poured a hazy light yellow, with a dense white head. Aroma of peppery hop, melon and Belgian yeast esters. Bready malt flavours, with very dry, grassy hop notes and some tart berries. Super dry grain in the finish, with some straw and chalky hints.

seynie (146) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2014
Hazy yellow with a nice foam top. Smells like regular lager but the taste is definitely more bitter. A lot of taste for a beer with so little alcohol. Yeast, citrus, herbs, pepper. Nice dry finish with a bit of sweetness. Great summer beer.

guitarhero (23) - Dante’s hell, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014
A good pale ale in the belgian style with english hops, probably e.k golding for the late additions. Refreshing, citric and soft.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
[Bottle at Volo] Pours a murky yellow-gold with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Interesting, and nice, aroma is yeasty and hoppy along with grain and some light fruity tartness. Flavour is lightly tart, grainy and quite herbal along with a long moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. Not great, but pretty good.
