Lowenbrau (2676) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 3, 2014
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Bottled 21-08-13. 03-04-2014.
In short: a grassy bitter ale.
Pours hazy dark gold-orange with huge frothy white head. Overcarbonated. Long head retention, some lacing. Grassy, caramel, flowers aromas. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, some sweetflavours but bitter dominated, grassy, caramel, spicy. Dry aftertaste. Enjoyable.

Between golden and copper. Big foamy head, very lasting, lot of lacing. Smells of citrus, floral. Medium carbonation, medium body. Taste of caramel, mango, citrus. Mellow tastes. The fruity sweetness balances the bitterness. Light bitter aftertaste. A bit soapy. Yet crispy. Good.

JohnRMurdoch (3845) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2014
330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Orange amber, big foamy head. Citrus pine hop aroma. Bubblegum mango orange hop flavour. Very sharp with big mango hop aftertaste. A classic IPA.

rosenbergh (8675) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
330 ml bottle. Bottled on 21/08/13. From saveur-biere.com.
Slightly cloudy amber colour with a big foamy white head. Absolutely delicious aroma of fruity hops, lactic acidity, sweetness and malt. Yummy! The flavour is strong hoppy bitterness, resin, yoghurt sourness and malt. Rather nice. Not as delicious as the aroma was but pretty still pretty nice... Nice and smooth one.

Scottishchris (451) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours slightly murky amber with white foamy head that persists. Hops on nose and lips. Tropical. Medium carbonation, lovely mouthfeel. Bitterness is balanced with fruity medium body. Tasty.

tomekk1978 (925) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Skład: woda, słod (pale, karmelowy), chmiel (sładek - goryczkowy, casdcade, citra, amarillo - aromatyczny), drożdże dolnej fermentacji. Barwa: złocista / jasno bursztynowa, początkowo klarowna. Na dnie zmętniona. Piana kremowa, obfita, początkowo grubo pęcherzykowa, następnie drobno, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Smak: słodowy, ale wytrawny z dominującą goryczką, niestety zbyt ściągającą. Na końcu wyczuwalny alkohol. Dość rzadko spokytany przypadek, gdy jestem rozczarowany piwem z browaru De Molen. IPA warzona na drożdżach dolnej fermentacji i być może z tego wynika różnica. Aromat nieco kwaskowy podobny, do piwa, które zrobiłem w domu. Mocno średnie. Aromat chmielowy (cytrusowy, pikantny), ale także nieco kwaśny. Podobny uzyskałem swego czasu chmieląc na zimno angielska IPA z brew kita. Nie do końca przyjemny.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear copper pour with massive foamy white head, yeasty aroma, taste is quite herbal with some citrus hop action and grapefruit, powdery yeast some metallic tastes, the aroma said I wouldn’t like it, but I did.

Goudkleurig, helder. Dikke laag schuim. Weinig aroma, beetje citrus. Zachte smaak, iets te zacht, weinig karakter.

sir__v (1124) - Lille, FRANCE - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle shared with friend at home. Color: nice copper blond beer with medium carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: herbal and hoppy nose with mango and peach presence. Taste: hoppy taste and with a high malt expression. The balance is ok, and a yeast touch is also on mouth. Aftertaste: nice bitterness with bread taste and malty notes.

Beerhunter111 (10902) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.
