stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe [280414]
Light amber, slight haze, big frothy bubbly white, good lacing
Aroma - Grapefruit zest, some floral hops, fresh zesty hops, nice sweet fruity light caramel malt background
Taste of bitter zesty hops, sweet grapefruit, getting some sweet sponge cake mix(!), grapefruit zest, lots of bitter zest, alcohol well hidden, sweet light caramel malts, touch of slight toffee in the background to add interest, really tasty
Palate - soft carb, medium body, rather sweet with bitter zesty hops. Finish as main flavour, lingering very bitter zest and sweet malts to balance the bitterness, some slight toffee
Overall - Just a cracking beer, lots of flavour, really well made

JohnCook101 (303) - - APR 27, 2014
Slightly hazy light copper with a decent white head. Light floral and guppy aroma. Flavours of grapefruit, straw, pine, a little biscuit and a strong but not too overwhelming bitter finish. Medium bodied and very slightly oily. Light to moderate carbonation. Love it.

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2013
50cl bottle from a gift-box. Brilliant clear straw colour wth a white head; slightly musty tropical fruit aroma; rich and buttery in the mouth with lots of fruit - mango, pineapple, and grapefruit, and an immediate bitterness; the finish is long and lasting with a gentle bitterness that hides the alochol very well. The best of the bunch.

Bottle. Yellow with a small head. Some hops with a lingering bitterness. Mediun body and well bottled. Delicious and very easy to drink. Its so easy to drink that it was easy to forget that its a six percenter.
