Jonb5 (365) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Pint served in shaker, initial haze cleared, bronze, clear, small head, moderate retention, no bubbles. S: Earthy sour fruity aroma pointed to use of the Fuggles hop, mild citrus suggested a Cascade style hop. T: Citrus fruits, predominantly grapefruit, wheat, some sweetness which was balanced out by an earthy bitter finish. M: Very smooth, low carbonation, nice texture, went down well without it being sticky. O: A sessionable summery beer, good addition to the Fullerís range. Not too strong with decent depth.

HammerTroll (509) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2014
Pale yellow color, big white head. Hoppy aroma. Fruity and piney. Watery. Nice bitter taste, but fades away very quickly. Thin body, average carbonation. Bitter finish. Weak for an APA, but not that bad in overall.

nightswimming (16) - TURKEY - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle at the United pub in Istanbul. Appearance is a little ordinary but fresh citrus aroma promises a good ale. Sweet notes of rose syrup but the keyword for this beer is wonderful "bitterness". A long bitter finish, a real wild river! Cool...

McTapps (4143) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Asda in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear golden-amber colour with low head and medium body, Wonderful aroma of fresh hops, vanilla and spruce. Taste of bitter hops, flowers, herbs, mild spices, citrus, thyme and roses. Bitter and thin finish. Not a bad one, but not their best either.

Got that one from ASDA in Eastbourne and shared it with McTapps. Really classic hoppy nose with some grass and a few spices. Soem bread, definitely hay and an earthy background.Like that sharp and crispy bitter ending with that bit of grass, too.

500 ml bottle Clear straw golden color. White head that falls to a collar. Nose is citrus, bread, husk, and slightly dusty. A bit old and faded. Taste is metallic citrus. Some bread as well. Very dusty. Light bodied and some prickly carbonation. Old and very faded. Kind of a bummer.
