stravale (2778) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle @ Copper Still, Dromod [180314]
Blonde, slight haze, frothy dense white head, good lacing
Aroma of citrus hops, soft grapefruit, sweet fruity pale malts, some tropical fruit in there, fruity nose
Taste of fresh citrus hops, grapefruit pith, sweet fruity pale malts, touch of biscuity malt, dab of pine, grapefruit zest,
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite oily, good mouthfeel, sweet pale malts, decent hoppy citrus bite. Finish as main flavour with a nice lingering sharp citrus zest
Overall - A lot of these bottled golden ales are rather dull and insipid - this is not the case - really decent blonde, plenty of flavour. Found it better quite chilled

Theydon_Bois (16885) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle at mum and dads, from Callans, 18/01/14. Hazed golden with a big old off white head that dissipates a touch but retains. Nose is bitter orange, toasted malts, dank hop notes, straw, orange marmalade, light mineral notes, bitter apricots. Taste comprises straw, bitter orange, citric tang, earthy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy bitterness in the closure. Ok GB affair.

50cl bottle at home. Pours cloudy marmalade orange. Lots of sediment. Head dissipates to nothing. Sour bread aroma. Flavour is sour, bitter, pine, spruce, toast. Medium bodied rounded with nice medium bitterness. This is another good beer from Dungarvan.

Vinx (109) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2013
Beautiful huge white head, very pleasant aroma of bubblegum and citrus, refreshing bitter taste with a more bitter aftertaste. Very easy drinking and well balanced. Actually it’s an IPA. I definitely guess it’s dry hopped.

ruigo (2323) - PORTUGAL - MAR 17, 2013
It smelled as an American pale ale and the taste is almost perfect (although a little bitter too much in the end). I am happily surprised.

Scott_Snyder (27) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Drinks like an ESB. Nicely hopped. Some fruity esters and maltiness in the aroma as well as very low level diacetyl. Aggressively hopped in the bittering range. Only serious flaw is chill has and could be just a little more malty to balance the hoppiness.
