Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2013
50cl bottle. Light golden with delicate small head. NOSE : the aromas are moderately strong but fresh with notes of citrus fruits and toast bread. There is this dry aroma of zest and hay that pierce when the beer is agitated. SIP : water like density with delicate carbonation. The texture is like water too. The beer has toast bread like malt flavor. Gets dry and becomes more and more bitter towards the end. Meanwhile the flavors are citrus zest like and there is a pine like crisp to it. A bit soap like background. The finish is dominated by moderate bitterness. OVERALL : For me it lacks a bit of body and carbonation. Still it is a spot on beverage for a summer refreshment and I will surely come back to it.

downender (5909) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold, with a decent white head and moderate carbonation. Gentle, lemon hop and slightly bready malt aroma. Hoppiness was more prominent in the mouth, with some zesty citrus, crisp malts and a lingering, bitter finish. Good.

agent_persik (292) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2013
Clean golden color, small head. Fruity aroma of hops, caramel, malt, citrus, peach and grass. Taste is similar, quite dry with bitter hoppy finish. Thin body and good carbonation. Simple but quite drinkable hoppy beer.

Golden colour, white head that leaves a few bubbles. Aroma - faint citrus, pepper, butterscotch. Taste - lemon flavoured paper, slight malt caramel at the back. Pretty lame!

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from Tesco [241113]
Light amber, clear, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma - Some zesty hops, little fruit, some sweet light buttery caramel malts
Taste - Zesty hops but a fair amount of light sweet caramel malts, bit of peppery spicy hop in there, hint of light toffee butter biscuit which Iím not sure about...odd flavour
Palate - Soft carb, light to medium body, quite oily. Finish - lot more bitter old lemon zest comes though, a bit dry, some more of that odd buttery malt
Overall - It has too much of that buttery biscuit pale malt and the hops give a zest bitterness without much fruity flavour. For a bog standard brewery this would be alright, but Fullerís can do far better than this

Martin243 (689) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
500ml bottle at home served cold. Faint aroma of butterscotch and rusty radiator water. Bright gold with a good white head. Citrus backed up with cardboard, lingering bitterness. Watery and disappointing.

martjoobolut (342) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2013
Midly hoppy aroma with citrus and floral notes. Pours clear golden, with big white head, which dissapears rather quickly, but not momentarily. Taste: hops, caramel, floral. Finish is dry bitterness that stays for some time. Lively carbonation. Overall: a little bit too unbalanced for me, not my kind of beer.
