Hazy orange pour with tan head. Citrusy hopped aromas, pretty one dimensional. Crisp and light buttering of citrus tones, hops at the core.

Shlemophone (18) - RUSSIA - FEB 13, 2015
Unclear orange of color with an off white head. An aroma of hops, citrus, grapefruit, fresh and bitter. A flavor of citrus, hops, dusty, bitter and a nice dry finish.

Vili (84) - FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
33cl bottle. Darkish gold pour with medium creamy head. Aromas of hops and fresh grass, some pine maybe as well. Taste medium bitter, little sweet and somewhat bitter. Medium carbonation and quite slick palate. Aftertaste is sophisticated and long with good balance of hoppy fresh bite and malty brawniness. very likable and good overall stuff.

drjoeng (47) - - JAN 17, 2015
4.5% ABV. Pale Ale. Light thin creamy head. Nose is airy light with very light with hints of pine and holly. Nice carbonation. Good mouthfeel. Light on the palate. Almost non-existent aroma hop presence. Nice bitter hops come on fresh, herbaceous and promptly. Not cloying and leaves the palate cleanly with the same fresh clean feeling after spearmint gum. The only possible negative is that this could be a little safe in danger of being pedestrian. Overall a nice little effort that is likely to play well to a wider commercial audience.

maekchu (2450) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Light citrus/pine mix, with soem caramel. Cloudy orangeish/amber, thin head, floaties abounding. Fruity initial, takes a light harsh downturn, minerally, and light bittering in finish. Thin, watery body... undercarbonated. Very mild, dull stuff.

olliejobbins (1161) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
330ml bottle. pours a hazy dark yellow/light orange with thin white head. aroma is citrus, pine and hops. taste is very different from a stereotypical english bitter. this is more like an IPA as it’s very citrussy and dry finishing.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
magicmn (94) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 1, 2015
Very strong aroma of lemon and other citruses. Very pale colour. Taste is bit plane hoppy enough but too simple - same fruits, plane body. Nothing special more like light APA.
