Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Dark yellow colored with white particles in there. Little yellow head. Strong amarillo hopped aroma with floral note. Medium bodied. Flavor is more watery with still strong and biting hops, this amarillo of course still present. Aftertaste lasts with lemony hops. Well, rare flavored for 4.7% brew.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle--thanks to jbrus! Hazy peach color with small beige head and quite a lot of sediment. Pronounced amarillo hop aroma. Sunflowers, bay leaves, honey and bee pollen in the back of the nose. High carbonation but not prickly, more like it sneaks up and bursts into the mouth after a small sip. Excellent sweet grain foreground. Mellow and earthy with a little smoke, roasted rice, and green tea tannins. Session potential and balanced.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2008
Bottled, 0.7 liter BB 20/04/09, from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Hazy golden coloured, lasting head, beautiful. Amarillo nose, some grapefruit. Bitter flavour, quite watery. Very thin mouthfeel. Becomes a bit better when at the end of the bottle. Too thin to impress though.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2008
75 cl bottle at Hopheads´ fourth tasting - in my garage. Bought at Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. Light amber color with just a bit hazyness, fine off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and kind of fruity. Flavor is sweet and floral hoppy, with hints of perfume. Dry finish in this APA-like beer.

wyzzywyz22 (1996) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2008
On Draught, De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Orangey yellow with a thin white head. Plenty of amarillo hop lurking in the nose with some caramel malt. Thickish mouth feel. Nice citrus flavours and pretty darn good.

Borresteijn (4856) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2008
33cl Bottle bought at the brewery. Hazy golden/orange colour, creamy white head. Aroma of hops, resin and malts. Flavour is of American hops, resin and slightly malty. A bit less thin than de Molen Engels. Spicy bitter finish. A bit thin and dry mouthfeel. Very nice low ABV beer though.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Hazy tan colour. Herbal, floral hops with lots of spicy, dusty yeast notes. Dry, bitter, a little footy in the yeast character.

harrisoni (14015) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Angry fist of Santa tasting at Chris o’s. Gold, slight haze. Thin off white head. Nice hop aroma. It’s a kick in the head with cat’s pee. From Harry. Really cool hop on the end. That gets better as it goes. 4/5 Re-rate at Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate. One of the best cask conditioned beers I ’ve had. The hops jumped out at you.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2008
Bottle. At Chris_O’s September 2008 DenCan bash. I think I got the very bottom of the bottle - murky orange with plenty of floaties and a solid creamy-fizzy off-white head. Huge funky wave of pungent acidic hops - lovely! - "like being punched in the head with cat piss" was my exact quote. There was actual malt sweetness in the taste to balance it, the actual hop flavour was almost disappointing - still there, but not as pronounced - grassy and tart in the long finish. Slick, somewhat acid on the tongue, nice carbonation ... this was really unexpected from a Netherlands beer; unbalanced but really welcome, particularly the aroma.
