bartlebier (1555) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2013
33cl bottle, Geers, sampled VI2013 (backlog). Pours a very pleasant zesty and effervescent orange, which is then mirrored in aroma and taste: tangerine hops and a wisp of pale malt caramel working in accord with refreshingly thin mouthfeel. As much subtle flavour as you can pack into a light continental bitter, I suppose. Always in support of tasty & light new summer brews...

KyotoLefty (6185) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from Good Beer. Dry, mineral nose, earthy hops, grass and light citrus, some caramel. Medium amber color with a low head. Light malt flavor, citrus hops, caramel, chocolate. Rather thin and quite metallic, a bit dirty as well, but hops and malt balance well. OK, but nothing special.

ThirstyBird (1486) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Thanks to kiwianer for sharing! Pours a hazy honey color with a loose tan/orange head. The smell is citrus, tangerine, smarties. Taste is tart citrus, tangerine - ends dry and slightly bitter. Light body, active carbonation but finely structured. A tasty 4.5% brew!

worldbeertaste (1609) - AUSTRIA - JUL 4, 2013
Golden orange amber with a frothy, lingering, lacy, off-white head. Smells of citrus orange hops, peachy fruit with light pine and medium malt. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet malt with soft yeast and a general fruity hops with a bit of pine. Medium sweetness with a soft bitterness and a fruity hoppy lingering finish.

jamestulloch (1280) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Aroma: Clean aroma of (Belgian?) yeast, orange and a hint of white pepper.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a massive off-white head. Light carbonation. Lots of sticky lacing marks.

Taste: Subtle flavour of grass, straw and lime. Pear and coriander.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: It’s listed as a Bitter but I think it’s more of a Pale Ale. It’s certainly more hoppy and complex than all other Bitters I’ve tried.

zenkis (549) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUN 1, 2013
33 cl bottle @Bierkoning, Amsterdam, bottled 23,07,2012. Pours heavy hazy pale orange with white-off medium top diminishing in long lasting frothy layer, light lacing. Aroma - definetly US hops, fruity-citrusy, soapy, sweet malty, not yeasty at all. Taste - bitter with far away sour as American pale ale, minimal malt sweetness, light dry finish, medium to light bodied, watery texture. Some sweetness, caramely in aftertaste what surprises me cause sweet in flavour as it is - minimal. Overall - if this is bitter than it is my first bitter hopped not with English hops and there is no that sour berries-candy tones in flavour at all. But as some bitter pale ale I like it.

DrSilverworm (6027) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2013
11.2oz, 4.42% labeled ABV, batch 753. No date on the bottle. Split with b3shine. Mildly hazy orange golden color. Big white head, that soon fades to a thin reasonable amount. Just some loose splotches of lace. Medium body. Soft, moderate carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Light to moderate bitter, minimal sweet. Unusual hop flavor, never heard of this "sladek" variety but it has a fascinating flavor profile that’s a bit difficult to pin down. Some citrus? Some spice? Light toasty malt. Solid, surprisingly drinkable bitter, it grew on me as I went. Kind of refreshing, with the lighter body and bright texture
