Hazy amber beer with a big pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and crispy and semi dry. Thin creamy malt base. Hops are light - whisper of citrus with more prominent grass and pepper. Semi dry finish. Refreshing but I wanted something more.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Amber color. Grassy citrus aroma and flavor. Dominant lemon. Refreshing and certainly not too hopbitter, Tart notes. Thinnish, but very fruity. Delicous summer beer.

Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle at the Croydonia Tasting, thanks to Jack, 13/07/13. Hazed orange amber with a thin off white head. Nose is hops, bitter orange, light tropicals, caramel, orange sherbet. Taste comprises light hoppy tones, grass, orange pith, sugars, bitter tropical fruit notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with slightly muted hop bitterness. Drinkable but lacks a little in flavour.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange color, medium sized pretty quickly diminishing white head. Nice fruity, hoppy, lemon and citrus aroma. Maybe a slight sharp citrussy, light sour hint. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, lots of sharp citrus influences, slightly a sourish touch. Overall I find it quite decent but I don’t see how this could come from the saaz hops. So it must be an infection which accidently makes it a nice beer to drink.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv malzig, fruchtig herb. Geschmack sehr mild fruchtig bitter nach Früchten.

Scopey (7437) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Bruce at Croydonia tasting. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a decent yellowish-white head. The nose is earthy, light toast, sweet lemon and grapefruit. The taste is earthy, decent bitterness, grapefruit, lemon, lime and sherbet with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not bad, I found it rather drinkable.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2013
33cl bottle (bottled on April 10th, 2013 and 4.8% ABV) courtesy of sebletitje, pours with a clear copper to gold body that supports a booming blooming off white somewhat cobweb like head. The aroma offers up a decent load of citrusy lemon and lime as well as floral hops with thin rings of earthy funky soured citrus. The over carbonation causes a pretty explosive and prickly burst of grapefruit, lime and floral notes across my palate. As I adjust to the carbonation a tart lemon and mineral come to the surface by about midway. It ends with lingering lemon lime citrus, slivers of floral hops a bit of maltiness that slides into faint earthy tea like notes. I haven’t dealt with Saaz all that much but it seems pretty cool here with more facets to it that I thought. Too bad this is four months old and already heading well beyond its prime condition despite the bottle stating enjoy within 1 year. Maybe enjoy within two months would be better.
