Shain (108) - ISRAEL - SEP 13, 2014
On tap, tasted 100ml during Beers 2014 festival beer tasting. Aroma is faint with some tomato and light malt notes. Medium carbonation. Tastes bitter and quite sour, then more bitter-sweet. Light and refreshing. Flavor of bitter hops, spices.Ends bitter-sweet with notes of dried fruits. A light refreshing beer, but not boring. Drinkable, but not too impressive.

Apparently it's got acid indigestion written all over it, but I like it. Hoppy, deep, good flavours. Fruity and intense. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5l bottle. Very clear with small white head that goes down quickly. Aroma of hops, bready, maybe some citrus in behind. Taste quite bitter at finish, some sweet malts, maybe some citruses in behind...Moderate body with medium carbonation and long hoppy aftertaste. EXpected more from Fullers...

Cask at The Victoria, Paddington, London. Light golden with a small white head. Hoppy aromas with citrus and pines to the fore on top of light cereal malts. Easy drinking palate with soft carbonation and a decent hop bitterness. Another fine session ale from Fullers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

På fat @ Queens Head. Bärnstensfärgad vätska. Doftar svagt av säd. Smakar syrligt och sött.

Jonb5 (417) - 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 Fuller’s range. Not too strong with decent depth.

HammerTroll (700) - 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.

Clear golden color, big creamy white head with good retention. Lots of lacing. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, flowers. Light sweet, light bitter taste. Slightly dry. Very thin and watery, but good enough and very easy to drink.

Massive over flowing head exploded onto the floor. Light looking and fiz and citrus with tart notes. Note like an American Pale Ale. But quite nice.
