probstblueribbon (3324) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 27NO11.

App.: Clear amber with a nice light tan head. Aroma: Pungent pine/resin hops, somewhat floral and perfumed, lemon, citrus peel, the malts are almost there for support, light biscuit, a bit fruity, touches of caramel/toffee, a very nice hoppy IPA. Palate: Medium+ body, moderate, round effervescence. Flav.: A little more malt, more perfumed and floral, still fairly pine/resin, biscuit, toast notes, bright citrus notes, light caramel; dry with decent bitterness with a nice toast, biscuit, citrus/resin finish.

Good stuff.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Slothez. Amber pour with minimal off white head. Insipid caramel malt/hop nose.The hops really didnít sing on the palate as they should. Lifeless bitterness. Just about drinkable but pretty uninspiring and forgettable fayre.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - DEC 6, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 [India Pale Ale (Bottle conditioned 5.3%) bottle]. Clear amber body with a big white head. Nice grassy hoppy aroma with caramel, some pine, quite balanced. Flavour is balanced as well, malty with not much bitterness. A very easy drinking and enjoyable english IPA.

HogTownHarry (6293) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Bit of a slow gusher, but classic Fullerís appearance; bright, clear, deep amber-gold, large lasting pillowy/rocky off-white head. Also smells like a Fullerís - fresh cereal grain, light floral/herbal bitterness, some alcohol, clean (8-). Taste is a bit meh - grain gives way to a touch of dishwater, the bitterness never appears; just thin and a touch soapy, weakly carbonated and quick-finishing. Not bad, just somewhat dull and watery - refreshing at least.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Thatís an appealing-looking pour: very bubbly amber-gold, a large pillowy off-white head. Grass and honey dominate, and there is a bit of alcohol presence - it also seems to suffer a bit from a slight metallic tang to the hop aroma. The taste - rather sweeter, reminded me a bit of brown sugar on porridge, but the grassiness saves it - the alcohol is not all that strong ---- now, this is an IPA? there seems to be no bitterness to it at all, as the grass is more sweet than anything - imagine chewing the tender shoots of ripe hay or timothy; not bad, but nothing I would want again. Soft but chewy mouthfeel, all that bubbling didnít translate into much carbonation, and it finishes soft, honey-sweet, and quickly. Ehhh - again, not bad, but I would take the Honey Dew over this one, frankly.

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle (500ml). Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of pale malt, light Goldings hops and fruit -- mild and simple but pleasant. Nice flavour of sweet bready malt, Goldings, fruit and a decent dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. A solid beer, easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Volo. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with an average size diminishing creamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus fruit and a bit of grain. Refreshing flavour, with a decent amount of hops for a UK beer. Average bitter finish. Good body for cask, average+. I really enjoyed this.
