Alengrin (2982) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
From tap at Moeder Lambic, a gift from the owner, thanks! Italian IPA with coarse, yellowish white, irregular but stable head over a misty orange blonde beer with amber hue. Aroma of orange peel, peach, vanilla, fresh pineapple, white bread, chamomille and other field flowers, white grape peel, rosewater and banana. Fruity taste, peach, pineapple and orange peel ’citrusness’, very light sourish touch, medium carbo, sweet and honeyish maltiness, elegant and light, soft bitter hoppy finish, very floral and citrussy, more aromatic than deeply bittering, with subtle malt and yeastiness piercing through. Very pleasant and well-made IPA, one of the more soft, aromatic ones, probably intended as an English style example rather than an American style one.

33cl bottle. Pours hazy light amber with a huge, creamy long lasting light beige head. Very beautiful. Aroma is sweet malts, some sweet ripe fruit, citrus, yeast, light resin that quickly fades away and a somehow unpleasant acidic note. Taste is sweet malts, some sweet fruitiness again, some nice rustic flavors. Light vegetal bitter finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Alla spina. Aroma di caramello e cereale seguito da un buon bilanciamento tra erbaceo e fruttato. Corpo medio, aromi di erbaceo, vegetale e finale secco e amaro.

Leighton (13512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared at the chriso post-GBBF tasting 2014 - London. Pours unclear amber with a light, frothy white head. Tasty stuff, with notes of melon, grainy bread, orange. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with further grains, orange rind, bread. OK hop expression. Good overall.

Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry with a good fine crispness. Light malts, little thin dry creamy sweetness. Hops bring a little fresh orange and lesser pith. Light dry finish. Easy going and drinkable despite it’s dryness.

Bottle shared at Christ’s post GBBF minidig 16/08/2014. Aroma is nice fresh fruit, rapberry, hedgerow berry. Hazed golden coloured pour with a loose white head. Flavour is light parfume, berry, raspberry, ribena, berry. Palate is medium sweet, moderate carbonation. Decent.

Bottle shared at chriso Post-GBBF Tasting 2014, London. Clear golden beer with a small head. Strange malty aroma, hay and bread, some grapes. Rather plastic flavor, I did not like this at all.

Theydon_Bois (12057) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle shared at Chriso’s post GBBF minidig, 16/08/14. Golden amber with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is citric peel, bitter orange, light floral notes, spice, faint grapefruit. Taste comprises orange pith, light pine coating, bitter tropical notes, light spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. So so IPA, low end of the spectrum, disappointing as their APA was great!

Hopfelia Foglie D’erra Rated on June 7th, 2014. Pours with a massive head, stays for long. Leaves nice lacing. Color is amber. Aroma is lighter, not too overpowering, hoppy but easygoing. Not much malt in the base. Taste is nice, delicate and subtle. Bitterness is there, body is lighter, good drinkability. Citrus character. Good water has been used for brewing. Leaves behind some nice lingering bitterness. Good beer, 7% strong session IPA - if I may say so.

Benzai (9758) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Clear dark orange color, average to medium sized off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, but it also has some dishwasher water in it. Taste lightly malts, quite hoppy, quite bitter, some fruit peel. Lingering fruit peel bitterness. Decent body and carbonation. Decent.
