MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, - SEP 30, 2013
500ml Bottle. It pours a golden body with a thick white head that slowly disperces to a little lacing, Its aroma is quite impressive - grapefruit and biscuit malts are the predominant notes but theres grass and other citrus fruits too. Its taste is of malts, biscuit at first which passes to a mild lemon and grapefruit with a slightly dry bitter finish. A very decent session beer this. I will be having this again.

BlackHaddock (4144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2014
500ml bottle: poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 19th Dec 2014. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Hop laden aroma, citrus notes to the fore, slight tropical fruitiness in the nose too. The taste is also a fruity hop blend, with sweet and citrus fruit flavours vying for prominence, each strong and unwilling to bow out, or be second fiddle. Easy drinking, yet with enough going on to keep the senses interested through the whole 500ml bottle.

HenriqueBraga (10) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 11, 2014
Amarelo dourado/ âmbar claro, turva, boa espuma. Aroma lupulado cítrico, herbal. Esperava ser mais aromática por usar lúpulos americanos. No paladar ela é leve. Pouco amargor no retrogosto. Final seco, boa drinkability. É um pale ale leve e frutado. Boa cerveja mas não ótima. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floral, amber, clear, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, i normally like a beer from the fullers brewery but this is exactly what it says on the label (river water) and that is what it tastes like horrid tastes like river water

BenOver (112) - SLOVENIA - NOV 18, 2014
Pours golden with minimum head, smell is strong, fruity, hoppy and moderately fresh. But the nice sensation of the aroma is not reflected in the taste of this beer, because it somehow lacks the required balance, that I would expect from an APA. It can be described as a not so good copy of Adnams Ghost Ship.

Bozo_skeleton (570) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 14, 2014
Dorée avec a peine de carbonatation, collet moyen et fuyant, petite dentelle. Arômes plutôt faibles, biscuit, caramel. Mince en bouche, mais une amertume sympa qui reste assez longuement en finale, notes de pain légèrement grille. Manque un peu d’interret.

Cuso (5090) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from local distributor. Orange golden color with medium white head. Not very pleasant aroma of malt, oranges and yeast. Taste, sweet malt, oranges, orange zest, tangerines. Fruity finish with light hoppy bitterness. Forgettable beer.

Golden, clear, small head, dry hops in the aroma. Quite similar to ESB, but the body is simply lighter

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Lots of biscuits and some toffee, seasoned with zesty US hop notes. Lemon, lime, orange zest, all mixed together. Balanced taste, with neither the malts nor the hops dominating. Not too much hops used for flavour and bitterness, and given additionally the slightly earthy finish, this sessionable beer has an English soul. Very good.
