rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - SEP 17, 2012
0.3l bottle from Viti in Vancouver. Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange with a small bubbly fine white head. Aroma: hops, spice - cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, slightly smokey. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, clean finish. Taste: Armaillo comes out here. Starts out sweet, moves to bitter near the end. Probably not as bitter as a bitter should be, but i really like it.

Douberd (2221) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a glass tankard, ABV 4.5%, sladek as bittering hop, Amarillo as late hopping. Amber coloured beer, hazy, with one finger of off-white head, with good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, some butter, light citrus. Taste is malty, light orange peel, citrus. Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Overall okay, nothing special though.

Niall73 (1686) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle at home. Lively pour, lots of visible carbonation. Slight off white head over an orange/gold. Aroma has grass, a little orange, some toast. Light body, full carbonation. Crisp, with grass, lemon, orange, light pine, slightly herby, a touch of spice. Easy drinking. Nice.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
I do like these bitters that aren’t traditional English bitters. Bottle at home. Lively off white head on top of a mostly clear golden amber body. Nice hoppy aroma, citrus and strawberry. Flavour mildy malty mildly bitter, little creamy on the palate, fairly heavily carbonated. Nice.

thanatosti (904) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. AMber with a white head. Citrus hop aroma, typical amarillo aroma. Taste is less spectacular but for a 4,5 % ABV satisfying. Nice bitter.

Me la he tomado para reconocer el lúpulo amarillo. El aroma es floral y delicado pero se ha ido poco a poco. Bonito color y espuma. Ricamente lupulada pero con notas que no reconozco. Recomendable pero no sé si a la nota de Ratebeer.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinsons Beer Shop, Inverness [081113] Bottled 13/09/11
Amber, clear, big frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of old lemon citrus, light sweet fruit pale malts
Taste of old lemon citrus, light quite oily pale malts, dry lemon zest, slight grapefruit, hops have obviously dulled after this time but still a tad there and the malt background is light and sweet
Palate - Soft carb, light to medium body, quite oily. Finish - quite dry, then some oiliness, then a dry powdery dull lemon zest finish
Overall - Surprised this was any good after more than 2 years - some weakness in flavour but there’s still a bit of hop in there

fiammanghilla (533) - Genova, ITALY - OCT 20, 2013
Spina @ cantinetta. Chiara con schiuma fine e persistente. Molto secca ed amara, un po' sbilanciata. Non mi ha soddisfatto molto... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

RD400F (180) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Aroma consists of various citrus fruits, light caramel, slight pineyness. Appearance a dull orange with a fine abundant white top. Taste mirrors the aroma and backs it with the bitter of the hops. Palate is thin, spritzy and refreshing.

Great beer but pushing the style limits a bit. Whatever, it’s an awesome beer which showcases the hops well.

JLDC (66) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2013
Colour: Bright orange with a firm head. Nose: Lots of fruit (grapefruit, banana, mango, orange). Grass-y and fresh. Flavours: Dry and bitter with underlying tones of exotic fruit and subtle malts. Lively carbonation. Feels slightly watered down, possibly due to the low alcoholic strrength. Finish: Long, fresh and bitter. Verdict: Nice bitter, but a bit too much IPA for my taste.

330ml bottle. Copper/amber with minimal head and lacing. Caramel, orange, lemon zest pine, yeast, vanilla. Maltier and sweeter than the aroma led me to believe. Fruity and smooth with a very mild finish.
